Web 2.0 collaboration

We're bringing together key people in Grenland working with web as a marketing channel. If you have a blog, a corporate website or any other message you'd like to get out, share or value innovate and increase, then this is it.

Here's the invitation for web collaboration to IKT Grenland (in Norwegian). This has already created quite a stir and interest ;-) I believe this Web 2.0 collaboration group has the potential of becoming a powerful group of people.

Here's a list of buzzwords and tools - in random order - this group will get together and discuss:
  • Wikis
  • RSS
  • Aggregators
  • Folksonomy
  • Six Degrees
  • AJAX
  • CSS
  • Social web (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter... long list!)
  • OpenID
  • Mobility
  • IM
  • Podcasting / videocasting
  • Pagerank
  • SEO
  • Microformats
  • Widgets
  • Blogs
  • ...and so it continues


  1. Great initiative, Vidar.
    Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, Social networking - which opportinities do they give us?
    If I may, can we gather the why's and objectives before we talk about the what's and how's. Or else it will be "Web 2.0 is the answer, what's the question?" You mention possible why's like: marketing channels, collaboration, bringing people together. I'm also for: knowledge sharing, subject/article enhancment/enrichment (let's have a wikipedia approach to any initiative), creating an ideal tool/workspace for the knowledge worker. I'm not even sure if the Web2,0 wave/tools is the right arena for that, but I believe if we move in the direction of the visionaries like www-creator Tim Berners-Lee and Vannevar Bush, I think we're on the right track.

  2. Well, in my mind this doesn't have to be one and the same thing...

    There's the online collaboration which facilitates sharing and innovation. This could be a perfect overlap with web 2.0 "promotional activities", but I'm thinking it would be better to keep them separate, at least to begin with.

    I.e. the first is finding out why, what, who and how and then start collaboration, the latter is more a matter of getting the right people together. These people already have their PERSONAL and individual agendas and incentives in place. Collaboration in itself, businesswise, may not be of interest.

    The first is a vertical business specific initiative. The latter is a horisontal competency generic initiative. If we can merge the two initiatives that's merely a plus ;)

    ...don't know if that was clear??! heh
