BarCamp reactions to OpenTeams

Some nice excerpts from Houston Chronicle technology journalist Dwight Silverman's blog, where he posted his Twitter feed from BarCamp Houston.

dsilverman OpenTeams seems to make wikis much friendlier, more usable. I've always found wikis klunky to use; this is much more intutitive.

deneyterrio Agrees with dsilverman. Openteams is more robust than basecamp

dsilverman The OpenTeams app looks a lot like the 3-vertical-pane layout in Outlook 2003/2007. Biz types will get that a lot faster than wiki interface

Always nice to hear some affirmation...

OpenTeams delegation at BarCamp Houston

Great event and our presentation was very well received. Lots of good questions and positive feedback during and afterward. I didn't know what to expect going in, and was very pleasantly surprised. Thanks everybody!

Here's the Flickr slideshow with Alex, Tim, and I at BarCamp.

Startup Houston blog covers OpenTeams

Josh and I had a long conversation at Starbucks. Good stuff.
...a pretty slick tool that is like a wiki on steroids.

What I find refreshing about OpenTeams is their focus on the enterprise market. So much of the social media revolution has been consumer oriented and advertising based.

Often, the only companies that benefit from deployment of collaboration tools are large corporations with impressive IT budgets that provide for streamlining innovation processes. OpenTeams has a tool that is affordable and ready to deploy within minutes.

The wiki workplace: How web 2.0 changes everything

Yes, this slideshow presentation is being sponsored by one of our competitors, SocialText, but it's still a good overview of how web 2.0 technologies like blogs and wikis will change how organizations work. Jump to the 49 minute mark for the good stuff, which ends at around minute 25, for a total of 24 minutes. Also a nice list of wiki benefits on a slide at the 22 minute mark. Thanks to Michael Stephen Ruiz for the pointer.
