If you are actually reading this particular weblog post through the RSS feed you may not have noticed it, but I have just done another update to the weblog template where I have added a new badge or logo from a group of folks that I have recently joined thanks to the kind invitation from Jerry Bowles, the always entertaining and enlightening weblogger behind Enterprise Web 2.
Yes, that is right, folks, the badge I have just added into this weblog template is the one from the Social Media Collective. As you would be able to see, it is a group that has got a defined purpose around the world of Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0. Here you have got a quick excerpt of who we are and what we are up to:
"Social Media Today is a collection of the best writing from the Social Media Collective, a diverse group of bloggers, consultants, investors, journalists, and analysts who represent the web’s best thinking on social media, marketing and Web 2.0. For information, contact Jerry Bowles."
We have got a Web site set up already using the fine service of Blogtronix (Perhaps I will get to write a follow up weblog post on the different capabilities from this Enterprise 2.0 offering), where you would be able to see all of the content related to social computing for the Enterprise that have been sharing thus far.
At the same time, Maggie Fox has actually created a podcasting service where every week there will be an episode with an interview from each of the members from the Social Media Collective. You can check it out and have a listen on the main homepage or you can subscribe to it over here (First episode with Jerry Bowles is up and running already!). There are also a number of conference call events hosted on different social software tools, thus stay tuned for upcoming weblog posts where I would be sharing some thoughts on the ones I have been able to attend thus far.
As you would also be able to see in the Social Media Collective site, you would be able to subscribe to a number of different sections of the Web site, including all of the different weblog posts, comments, news items, events and wiki. And at the same time you would be able to see the list of members of the group who are actually weblogging away and engaging in the different conversations. So if you are thinking about building up on your Enterprise 2.0 feeds index I would strongly encourage you to have a look at that list of contributors because you would be able to find some really good stuff already shared and ready to digest. And, of course, build up your own OPML file of Enterprise 2.0 webloggers. Yes, I know there are plenty more, but this particular group can certainly be a good start to get things going, don’t you think?
And, of course, so much more, but I will actually be detailing some of them as time goes by. For the time being, just a heads up to encourage all those folks interested in Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and Social Computing to check out Social Media Collective, because there is a great chance you may find what you were looking for over there! Stay tuned for some more to come !
