Companies Turn to Internal Blogs & Wikis for Knowledge Management

InfoWorld has an interesting article on a new corporate trend: the use of “enterprise” blogs and wikis to as internal knowledge sharing and collaboration tools. Adopters include Disney, Hewlett-Packard, General Motors, IBM, Intel, Microsoft. (What’s a wiki?)
From the article:

“Blogs and wikis play opposite roles,” says Martin Wattenberg, a researcher on the collaborative user experience team at IBM Watson Research Center. “Blogs are based on an individual voice; a blog is sort of a personal broadcasting system. Wikis, because they give people the chance to edit each other’s words, are designed to blend many voices. Reading a blog is like listening to a diva sing, reading a wiki is like listening to a symphony.”
