  1. Fantastic post Luis. I definitely will be using the image and the business case this week as I continue trying to convert people to the advantages of wiki usage.

  2. Great post Luis. I will definitely be following your progress. Email reduction is definitely something we want our PBwiki products to be compatible with.

  3. Luis, this is a great post. Thanks.

    I mentioned your efforts yesterday in a presentation I gave on “large-organization use of social media.” The information you present here is a good follow up to that.

    When I was researching the use of blogs as project management tools, the most concrete advantages I was told about for using blogs and wikis in conjunction with project management was “reduction in emails” (

    Because of that, I’m looking forward to what you say in the future on what specific activities have been impacted (and vice versa) by moving away from email. Also, what has been the influence of your working within an organization that takes social and collaboration technologies seriously? Does this give you an advantage to your being able to replace email with more public communications?



    Personally to effectively cope with the incoming streams of information including e-mail, I’m using my summarization application. At a click of a button I get to see the essential keywords and the most important sentences. Over period of time I found that looking at the instant information capsules gives me quite useful insight and saves me a lot of time. If you would like to try out summarization this is the product link: Context Organizer from Context Discovery Inc.
