Hi Whirlers,
I have to make an intranet portlet (based on IBM Quickr) cool and fun to use. It is planned to host the innovation activity and will feature uploaded files, talkbacks and blogs. Our IT will deal with the infrastructure, I *just* have to translate 'cool' to requirements for them. The goal of the portlet is threefold: hold the files presented at meetings, spur a lot of discussion around them and, later on, host initiatives based on processes that will be established. Piece of cake...right?
I'm a bit clueless as what is cool these days and what would make people participate.
Any help is greatly appreciated (and shared with the list).
