This is an excellent article at InformationWeek about the blogging trend and how blogs can be useful inside a company for things like project and knowledge management.
Interestingly, UserLand popped up again:
“John Robb, president and chief operating officer of UserLand Software Inc., which develops blogging technology, envisions individual workers using blogging tools to jot down their thoughts during the course of the day and as a platform for collaboration among colleagues. A doctor might make note of a new symptom that’s begun to appear in patients during the summer months, or an insurance agent may observe that a series of accidents involved a certain vehicle model. ‘The basic organizational structure of a weblog—they’re time-stamped and archived—provides a record of what people are doing and thinking,’ Robb says.”
Robb has apparently coined the term “klogs” for knowledge management blogs and has a Yahoo! group on the subject.
