The last couple of blog posts have been on the long side of things, thus I thought I would take the opportunity to share a much shorter one today so that you have got a good opportunity to check out a couple of interesting presentations I have bumped into and which I am sure you are going to enjoy.
They are both from my good friend, and fellow IBM colleague, Ed Brill, who just recently participated in a couple of different events (One of them virtually, with all of its various challenges). In both events he eventually gets to talk about social software within the corporate world and not only how he is benefiting from something so powerful as corporate blogging, but also about how social software is increasingly disrupting the corporate world to a certain degree.
At the same time on one of the presentations you would be able to see how he is sharing his insights on having a good balanced approach towards adopting both behind the firewall social software tools as well as external ones. And all of that including a couple of slides of how IBM itself is tackling its own social software adoption mentioning the program I am part of and of which he is one of those Social Software Ambassadors as well.
Thus without much further ado, here you have got the couple of presentations for you to page through as well as the corresponding posts from Ed’s blog giving you some further details and background on each of the events he presented at just recently.
Oh, by the way, just in case you were wondering, I *do* share plenty of the insights that Ed puts together on both slide decks as how I view and live social software myself, both inside and outside of the firewall. Just in case you are wondering … After all, I am also one of those (Social Software) Ambassadors 😉 heh
