Hi Nevon - if just Forrester (or other evangelists of their kind) had your approach, and your sense of nuances, no idea would have to be trashed. Not by me, at least.
If we can discuss the eventual future your sober way, I'm sure a lot more by-passers will take notice. And that's what we both hope for I guess. Keep up the good work, always a pleasure to read your blog.

Neville Hobson

The sober way is the only effective way to discuss all of this, Fredrik.

However, this is quite an emotive topic. Many people I speak to (too often, the communicators) just don't see it at all. Indeed, I had a conversation with a large-ish company just last week who are about to spend an awful lot of money building a new intranet that will simply maintain a command-and-control information infrastructure in an international organization that's rapidly changing and evolving and where the people are crying out for a wholly different collaborative approach.

The point you make on people's abilities and willingness to do things like blog is one that I think will be crucial to address. Hence the point about coaching - that will be equally important in the future workplace.

How far away is the vision from potentially becoming a reality in some companies? In terms of trialing it, I'd say during 2005. That soon.
