Here’s the pre­sen­ta­tion I did for the Can­berra Web Stan­dards Group meet­ing yes­ter­day. It’s a tech­nol­ogy and plat­form inde­pen­dent look at the ben­e­fits and cul­tural aspects around social com­put­ing in a busi­ness con­text.

The pre­sen­ta­tion went well, with an inter­est­ing 25 min­utes of con­ver­sa­tion with the audi­ence afterwards.

If you’d like to take the pre­sen­ta­tion and twist it to your own nefar­i­ous pur­poses, feel free. As with all of my mate­r­ial, this is pub­lished under a Cre­ative Com­mons Attribution-​​Noncommercial-​​Share Alike 3.0 License, so please, spread it. Mash it up. Change it. Add to it. It is avail­able for full down­load at Slideshare and if you ask nicely, I’m more than happy to send you the full ver­sion with speak­ing notes.

I’d also like to thank my friends Luis Suarez and Ric Hay­man for review­ing it and my friend Tara Hunt for some of the ideas.
