Despite hand wringing over professional and amateur content, the reality is that consumers will use and appreciate both.
Another item that I would like to suggest reading was a press release (the actual story would be better but I don’t have access to it), about The Conference Board Review's March/April 2008 cover story, which showed online on Forbes. The title was The Future of Advice. I ran across this story when reading a post on the topic in Ross Mayfield’s weblog. Mayfield concludes his post, titled Advice is a Conversation, with the comment:
I'm not sure how we lost our way with BI and decision support tools and forgot that advice is a conversation.
These themes are exactly what TalkDIG and the DIG2008 conference in May aim to address. We are trying to spark the dialog that rightly positions INFORMATON, in all of its manifestations, as a core enabler of successful business strategy and execution.
Join the dialog. What do you think?
