I'm particularly interested in and working to make sure numbers 3, 8, 9, and 10 become a reality. At one level it's frustrating trying to create the change needed to introduce blogs, wikis, and RSS into the corporate workflow. I work for an engineering firm with about 850 employees spread around 16 offices, so I can see how blogs and social networking tools would help. And thanks for the links in number 10. I'm meeting with our IT director next week to discuss this issue. It's both an exciting time and a frustrating one.

Keep hammering at it especially re number 8, Britt! Excitement and frustration do go hand in hand at times.

As you know, you're not alone in talking about these tools and trying to show others the benefits of them. If there's anything I can do to help, just let me know.

Hi Neville, great article! Interesting to see a different perspective in the Beeb's poll on China -- here in the States China is viewed with gradually growing interest-turning-to-concern. I guess it depends on your starting perspective....

Thanks for the links, especially to TrendTracker which gets less traffic than my main site, Small Business Trends.

Hope all is well with you.
