- Andrius recently posted about "who is interested in what" ref wikis etc.
(My apologies for breaking the thread by not keeping the same subject
line - this is done in haste)
The posting below comes from SocialEdge. Some of the links may lead to
things of interest..
Charles Cameron's games look interesting too. I like his postings - and
I have followed links to his games site - the games seem to and tie in

If anyone finds these links lead to items of interest please share back

an interesting group and process for offline and online collaborations
through meaning-filled conversations. Check out

Mark: good point about the challenge of gaing organization-wide

combines, blogs, wikis and social networking.
Next I hope we can talk more about best practices and processes for
