New Research report exploits companies' fear of web 2.0 technologies

A survey conducted by Forrester Consulting for Proofpoint says that almost 10% of companies have fired an employee for 'violating blogging or message board policies'.

There is nothing that is new with this survey. A McKinsey report on web 2.0 in companies explains FEAR and DISTRUST as reasons why many companies are not enthusiatic for web 2.0 technolgies such as blogs, wikis, forums etc. More on that here.

The fact that this redundant report was paid for by Proofpoint which sells message security solutions tells you where its priorities lie.

Instead, it would be nice if a Wiki company (or Six Apart) brought out a survey on how companies are using blogs and Wikis?
