Notes to self

The sessions at Round Table sparks many interesting discussions and thoughts. Amongst many light bulb, “aha!” moments and visions I had during these days, here’s the ones that stand out (in no particular order):

  • When running workshops with people with mixed IT competence/maturity, either separate the groups or raise the competence in the group
  • Must read the books “Long Tail”, “Free” and “The Thank You Economy”
  • Must view more presentations from TED
  • Finish my LinkedIn connector package for SharePoint and publish it on CodePlex
  • Make sure that there is a project budget for the project that follow yours, such as content migration, online communication, support, training or copywriting
