First posted on CloudAveAndrew McAfee, from the Center for Digital Business, MIT Sloan School of Management, believes we''ve reached a tipping point in terms of the acceptance of the tools and techniques of enterprise 2.0.McAfee sees some positive signs and some danger areas - "We have the opportunity to snatch defeat out of the jaws of success". The way that''ll happen;
Declare war on the enterprise
Allow walled gardens to flourish - an interesting analogy to Napoleonic land division in Paris where smaller and smaller lots were created all divided with hedgerows - let''s not go there...
Accentuate the negative - the risks aren''t quite as bad as people make out, don''t dwell on them
Try to replace email
Fall in love with features - "what''s the simplest possible thing that could work"
Overuse the word "social"
