Berkman fellow, MIT Scientist (http://ebusiness.mit.edu/), blogger 
(http://andrewmcafee.org/blog/), and tweeter 
(http://twitter.com/amcafee) Andrew McAfee will talk about his new book 
"Enterprise 2.0: New Collaborative Tools for Your Organization's 
Toughest Challenges". He'll open with a few prepared remarks about the 
book's topic: how the tools and philosophies of Web 2.0 are making their 
way into organizations (even traditional ones). We'll then open up the 
session for discussion.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

About Andrew:

Andrew McAfee studies the ways that information technology (IT) affects 
businesses and business as a whole. His research investigates how IT 
changes the way companies perform, organize themselves, and compete. At 
a higher level, his work also investigates how computerization affects 
competition itself – the struggle among rivals for dominance and 
survival within an industry.

He coined the phrase “Enterprise 2.0” in a spring 2006 Sloan Management 
Review article to describe the use of Web 2.0 tools and approaches by 
businesses. He also began blogging at that time, both about Enterprise 
2.0 and about his other research. McAfee’s blog is widely read, becoming 
at times one of the 10,000 most popular in the world (according to 
Technorati). He also maintains a Facebook profile and Twitter account.

McAfee is a principal research scientist at MIT's Center for Digital 
Business and is a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at 
Harvard University.
