Bookmarks for December 11th

These are my links for December 11th:

  • WordPress › Blog » WordPress 2.7 “Coltrane” – Woo hoo! WP 2.7 has been released. I’ve been using the beta version on two of my sites without a problem, and especially love the ability for it to auto-update itself rather than having to do a download-upload-upgrade manually. Column 2 will be upgraded as soon as I have some time off hours.
  • Getting started with enterprise social networking :: Blog :: Headshift – Lee Bryant on social networking within the enterprise. A key driver, in his words: “What I really like about the consumer Web 2.0 world is the fact that it has given us an amazing experimental laboratory for new tools and communication techniques… Conversely, in the enterprise tools space, users are of secondary importance and therefore there are few evolutionary pressures that can improve the generally poor quality tools and systems that IT departments force on the business. This is starting to change as more and more senior people ask why their children have access to more effective tools on their home PCs than they have access to in the office. “Why can’t it just be simple like Google?” is a commonly heard plea. This is producing pressure for change, and at some point this will feed into budgetary pressures to force change in enterprise IT.”
