The AppGap, “a conversation and resource on the future of work” sponsored by QuickBase, was recently launched. It is managed by Corante, who also manage the Fast Forward blog where I have been writing for over a year now. I am pleased to join another group of great bloggers to work on the AppGap. My first post was on Virtual Environments for Business: Unisfair, a company that has brought Second Life concepts to the enterprise. I will cross post some of these pieces on this blog, at least at first.
The blog’s goals are to serve as a “resource on the future of work and how new tools are addressing age-old challenges of organization, collaboration, and creation. But it is also an idea: that there remains a gap between the toolset that exists and what’s needed. This site’s intent: to serve as a resource for shedding light on the tools, trends, processes, and practices that can help and provide a forum for related discussions. Its intended audience: those in organizations, small, medium, or larger, who are looking for guidance, hoping to keep their ear to the ground, and seeking out answers that help them do their work more efficiently and profitably...”
QuickBase is giving us complete editorial freedom, as did Fast. They have their own blog, The QuickBase Team Collaboration Blog and their focus is described in this blog overview, Welcome to the New QuickBase Team Collaboration Blog.
I look forward to this new opportunity and hope to hear from you at the AppGap. I will doing a lot of reviews of enterprise 2.0 products , among other things. I will write more about the AppGap later but wanted to provide this introduction.
