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).
Erika
