This is a presentation I gave to the Usability Professionals Association on 16 September 2003. The full title was "Making sense of weblogs in the intranet: What they are, why people are using them, making them useful for knowledge management". I talked about weblogs inside my company, their use in knowledge management, and how my organization is hoping to make them usable for enterprise knowledge work if the number of blogs in the company increases significantly.
The abstract from the UPA site:
Lucent Technologies' Information Specialist, Michael Angeles, believes blogging has evolved beyond "cool" and is moving quickly into the corporate world. In this presentation, Angeles will discuss who blogs, how and why.
He will also discuss how Lucent is supporting bloggers and at the same time keeping close watch over the resulting growth of information on the Intranet. Lucent's objective is to determine how the increased content that will result from blogging can evolve into a plan for making that information useful and usable for the enterprise."
