Revenge of the Geeks February 26, 2007

Did you get the memo? The 2.0 phenomena isn’t replacing the office – it’s just making it more productive. Whether you call it Office 2.0 or Office 3.0, a new generation of productivity tools is reinvigorating the way we work, and more importantly, the way we work together. The TPS report may still be mandatory, but this time it will be a collaborative online document, cutting expenditures, reducing waste, and increasing efficiency. Lumbergh may still need you to work on Saturday, but this time you can do it from home via web-based spreadsheets and documents, instant message client, VOIP, and a whole host of next-generation tools.

At last, the cubicle is a concept of the past. Telecommuting is allowing environmentally and cost-conscious Dilbert sympathizers to spend more of their lifetime doing useful things, like not sitting in traffic jams.

Similarly, Web and Office n.0 are bringing software for the masses, finally allowing us to efficiently collaborate instead of individually looking after islands of documents and files.

Now if I could only remember where I put that stapler?

I started using delicious a while back, and apparently competition has been fierce as of lately. What to choose from all this new stuff?

How cool is a record label that actively encourages podcasting for promoting its music?
