What a great post! I love in particular: "Many companies and their leaders are grousing about the economy and its impact on the bottom line. Here's my take on that. If they have not fully utilized the Internet in their marketing efforts then they need to simply shut up." We work on the infrastructure enabling side of the Web and have noticed that most organizations have been lazy about using the Web to reduce operational costs (most intranets are an embarrassing mess) and organizations are also a mess about how they manage their Web technical and editorial processes. There are frequently redundant systems and processes and an ongoing and tiresome battle between the communications side of the business and the IT arena over who "owns" the Web site. Mostly, we think these problems persist, because "E" and "C" leadership don't want to make the hard choices and articulate a clear vision for the Web and then formalize the authority in the organization to get it done. If you're interested, we've got a paper on "Managing the Web in a Recession" ( that might be of interest. Thanks again for the great post. Lisa Welchman
