Great article about how to tell if your intranet sucks - I don't agree with everything it says, but it does promote the 'everyone must be able to publish' and discussion forum interaction model. Doesn't mention Wikis, unfortunately ... See HowToGetInternalBuyInForTWiki for related discussions btw.

So - maybe this would be a good place to discuss 'why intranets suck, and what to do about them' wink

Dear Scobleizer,

you list very good points, although some sound like they are tailored as a PR for Manila. What I miss is an alternative list of writeable intranet sites with pros and cons for each.

For example, many corproations are using a Wiki system for their Intranet [1], [2], [3], [4]. TWiki [4] is specifically designed for corporate Intranet use and addresses most of the points you listed.

To get a big picture of the TWiki technology read the article Mr. TWiki's Collaboration Software in the Open Magazine [5]; the Tool of the Month review in UnixReview.com [6]; How to Install TWiki as a Corporate Intranet at Linux.com [7]; and the TWiki article in the Web Techniques magazine [8]

Regards, Peter
