Anyone who knows me, knows that I love technology. I’m always looking for the hot, new tech buzz to incorporate into purchasing and supply management. After all, this was one of the first purchasing blogs – if not THE first purchasing blog.
The latest buzz is around what is called Web 2.0. Web 2.0 represents a series of simultaneous trends in Web use.
One of these new uses of the Web is the rise of “wikis” or pages where Web users can collaborate with little or no censorship or limitations. My first foray into the world of wikis was creating an entry into Wikipedia – an online encyclopedia dynamically created and continually edited by Web users – for the term “Supply Management.”
I purposely made this entry very brief and open so that it may evolve over time which is, to me personally, one of the exciting things about wikis.
I’ll be researching these new trends, devising applications to purchasing and supply management, and posting more here as well as in my more formal purchasing articles.
