My talk on blogging

I delivered a talk at Satyam computers on 25th April. I was invited by the Knowledge Management team there to address their employees on the nuts and bolts of blogging and sharing how Blogging could be a tool for Knowledge Sharing within the corporation.

The presentation I made can be found here - It's a 2 MB PPT.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the crowd (about 40 people had come in) covered people from all levels in the organization and functions (there were people from businesses, strategy group, learning center and support functions who were there). The best part was finding out that there were 4 bloggers there, although the famous tech blogger Sadagopan wasn't there.

There were quite a few questions about what could motivate people to blog within the organization and who should blog and what should the purpose of blogging be.

My take on the questions was that a variety of approaches could be tried for blogging and eventually the culture of the company would determine what kind of blogging takes off, and finds the rhythm within the organization.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself in the talk and found myself getting quite passionately drawn into the discussions around it.

The talk has given me also quite a bit of food for thought and I will be blogging about them in the near future.
