I had such a tremendous response to my previous list of micro-blogging and enterprise 2.0 resources, that I thought I would research just a little bit more to see what else I could find. I came across this “live binder” of Enterprise 2.0 resources put together by Ellen Trude, a teacher by profession, and who is currently a training consultant for social media and special projects concerning collaborative platforms. Her live binder contains an immense amount of Enterprise 2.0 studies, blog posts and research that makes it one of the most comprehensive resources I’ve ever come across. If you’re putting together a presentation, post or paper on Enterprise 2.0, this is a resource you shouldn’t miss.
Micro-blogging is the social media buzzword that gets some serious mojo going for those of you passionate about social networking for the enterprise (myself included). There are a plethora of tools available, and if you want a quick snapshot, you should read this CIO article on “12 Microblogging Tools to Consider.” In response to my previous post, “Extensive List of over 30 Enterprise 2.0 Case Studies and Resources,” I had an overwhelming request for case studies specific to micro-blogging. So here it is. I hope you enjoy your new bedtime reading material.

But some companies have taken a reactive stance against these tools due to privacy or transparency concerns, and the number of companies selling tools specifically for enterprise continues to increase.
