Abstract / Description

Explores the application of Web 2.0 technologies to business intranets, and
their potential use in managing and developing business information and
knowledge assets. Considers how Web 2.0 approaches on the public web are
subtly reshaping the relationship between users and information. Argues that
Web 2.0 is not a technological innovation, but is changing the understanding
of the status of information, knowledge and the role of the user in information
applications. Suggests that, as information proliferates, control is being gradually
ceded to users, opening up the possibility of a new, more democratic, and
more evaluative phase in the exploitation of information within organizations.
