Euan Semple: IT Is Not The Source Of Innovation

I had the chance to talk to Euan Semple, and old and dear friend, and get his perspective on what's happening in the enterprise. Since his years working at the BBC, and now as an independent consultant, Euan has developed a deep understanding of the barriers and benefits of adopting new web technologies.
Euan Semple from stowe boyd on Vimeo.I was particularly struck with his belief that IT people are not necessarily the wellspring of innovation in this uptake. "It would take an almost complete reinvention of themselves." And that things might be more difficult now that it has become "Enterprise 2.0" and not just some experiment. But at the same time he thinks it needs to "grow up" if it is going to do something big for the enterprise.
