A Peek Behind the Microsoft Research Curtain - Wikipedia for the Enterprise
Researcher Tom Laird-McConnell talks about Micropedia, which he describes as Wikipedia for the enterprise. Micropedia is an internal wiki designed to catalog every person and project within Microsoft. Laird-McConnell populated the site by mining the company's directory and creating a page for every employee, as well as for each project that has been--or is being--worked on.
Microsoft Research used its TechFest event at the Redmond campus on March 4 to show off just a few of the hundreds of projects currently under development in its labs around the world. These projects include new technologies for search, interaction, collaboration and social networking.
