2.0@CSL Camp redux

The good news - our leader checked in with the Dept. of Information Technology re: their acceptable use of systems policy vs. the use of Web2.0 tools. As I suspected all along, once a good business case is made, it's not like DOIT is going to stand in our way. They aren't in the business of stopping all innovation. The whole point of the policy is to keep people from misusing resources provided at work for their personal ends, not to keep people from doing their work & extending the organization's mission. All too often, it becomes easy to lay the blame for not moving forward on organizational policies rather than to say ok, what's the real issue here & how can we work around it?
