I am feeling bearish on the Enterprise 2.0 world these days. I started off the year by making some big predictions, and I am starting to wonder just how out to lunch I was.
Despite wanting to be down on the whole space, the reality is that a surprising number of those predictions have come true, and a few are (based on the rumor mill) on the cusp of becoming public as well. Despite that, my overwhelming feeling is that the rate of progress has slowed immensely. Thought leaders have dropped off like flies, corporate agendas are rampant in the conversation, and the brightest minds are settled in to comfort zones. The good news is that this is more about rationalization than it is about backtracking.
I’ll be recapping the year next month. Until then, sit tight and let’s see if there are some big announcements. Or Not.
