Social tools & web apps for work
Off the back of my recent invitation to speak on a panel at the Office 2.0 conference, I decided it was about time I went public about all the online tools that I & my team have introduced to NESTA. Here's a quick runthrough:
Our Intranet is a structured (hybrid) wiki powered by ThoughtFarmer... We've also been using CommunityServer to drive our internal blogs & discussion boards...
