Don Tapscott’s “Wikinomics”

» Posted by Jeanne Meister  » Posted on 01.27.08

The age of the Net Generation (people born between 1977 and 1996) is defined by rampant online social interaction, rooted in individuals desire to be able to interact with one another immediately, any time (24/7), any place.

Websites like Twitter.com and MySpace represent examples of websites that keep users updated, informed and in constant contact with their friends, colleagues and co-workers.

Learning, like the workplace itself, is becoming more team- based and collaborative, and thus more dependent on a new set of technical competencies. Don Tapscott says in his book, Wikinomics that the ability to use a wiki, software that enables any number of users to easily edit the content of web pages, will be a required job skill in the next two to three years.
