Practicing what we preach, our own intranet wiki
Sometimes it is much better to have someone else talk about what you do. We visited Andrew McAfee, a Harvard Business School professor, last week to chat about Enterprise 2.0 and give him a tour of our intranet wiki. This wiki is our latest attempt to practice what we preach and builds on the Peers intranet tool which was developed in our west coast offices. In a nutshell, Andrew absolutely loved the wiki.
Visit Andrew's blog for more screenshots and his commentary. The wiki was recognized at the Shared Insights Portals Conference as best in class in the collaboration category. Donna Jensen attended the conference to receive the award on Avenue A|Razorfish's behalf. I also presented the wiki at the recently held cmf2006 CMS and Intranets conference in Denmark.
Several different people participated in the design and development of the wiki including Ray Velez, Donna Jensen, Karen McGrane, John Ryder, Greg Gross, Sherwin Green, Steve Gray, Mike Barrett, Eric Muller, Kevin Kearney, Amy Vickers and myself. The decision to "wikify" was made during a technology community leadership meeting late last year and we have been fortunate to have the active support of the Avenue A | Razorfish management team as well.
