Yesterday I talked about wikis at Novell. Here is more about what is happening at Motorola. Cesar Brea sent me this link to a podcast discussion by Dan Bricklin with Toby Redshaw, Motorola's Corporate Vice President of Information Technology Strategy, Architecture & e-Business. He told Dan that “Motorola, #49 on the Fortune 500, has almost 2,000 internal wikis (that's separate wikis, each with many pages), and 2,700 blogs used by 60,000 of their 68,000 employees daily. 4,000-5,000 people are actively contributing, the rest mainly read.”Toby describes on the podcast what wikis and blogs are used for, how they rolled them out, what benefits they get, how they chose what they did, experience with bad behavior, etc. He also talked with Dan about “how wikis really helped save them time by getting around the need for a web specialist to maintain many important pages.” This is a very important benefit of wikis. I saw this happening on the Katrina missing person data base effort.
