I have sad news to report: there is no longer a Wikipedia entry on ‘Enterprise 2.0.’ My understanding of the details is a bit murky, and since I’m behind the Great Firewall of China at present I can’t access Wikipedia itself, but my understanding is that some flavor of administrator there decided that the concept was ‘not notable.’
Either those of us who think about this concept have failed to get over the very low hurdle of the minimum criteria for inclusion in Wikipedia, or there’s been a bit of a breakdown here. I’m strongly inclined to give both Wikipedia and the concept of Enterprise 2.0 the doubt. I suspect that the deletion decision, which had a unilateral and non-transparent feel to it, is just the result of a Wikipedian with an atypical view of his or her role and powers.
So it appears that we have two choices; we can lobby to have the deletion decision reversed or at least put to a more public vote, or we can just post another ‘Enterprise 2.0’ entry that makes the concept appear sufficiently notable and less like a transient buzzword. Wikipedia’s Web 2.0 entry might be a good template to use. If we take this approach we can use the enterprise wiki to collectively work on the new entry.
Preferences? My two cents: I see no problem with pursuing both courses of action, but I suspect that putting up a new entry is more likely to be successful.
