What are people saying about Wikinomics this week across the blogosphere?
Daniell Pritchett’s blog, sharing at work, talks about seven great communities for sharing ideas for collaboration in the workplace. He says that the Wikinomics Blog is his first stop! Thanks for all your great comments on the blog, Daniel!
Singapore Entrepreneurs talk about how Wikinomics principles are being applied in the new Singapore-based business Gogme.biz. Gogme plans to harness the minds, resources and pockets of individuals world-wide to kick-off three new businesses. They will whittle down an initial pool of 50 business plans down to 3 via votes from its membership. The final three plans will then be implemented.
Jon Mott talks about the Wikinomics of education. He talks about Web 2.0 technology in education and that it has yet to be fully utilized and that educators need to do a better job of making education more modular.
Louis Columbus talks about how Twitter can be used to enhance customer relationships on the Perfect Customer Experience blog.
JMadigan.net is reading and reviewing 52 books in 52 weeks. #36 on the list was Wikinomics. Interesting idea. The review isn’t entirely positive, but still recommends the book as a good read. He even mentions how he witnessed the power of collaboration while working at Gamespy.com (a service I used in the early days of online gaming).
Come back next week for more links across the blogosphere.
