Rules for Success in Enterprise 2.0

Tim O'Reilly sees network effects and harnessing collective intelligence as rules for success. Andrew McAfee points on freedom an other rule for success:

"... the use of technology platforms that are initially freeform (meaning that they don't specify up front roles, identities, workflows, or interdependencies) and eventually emergent (meaning that they come over time to contain patterns and structure that can be exploited by their members). I continue to see these as the key points of differentiation between E2.0 technologies and previous corporate collaboration and communication tools. Email is a channel, not a platform; groupware is not freeform and typically not emergent; and knowledge management systems were essentially the opposite of freeform -- they presupposed the structure of the knowledge they were meant to capture."
