Don Burke currently leads the Department of Energy's internal collaboration capability called "Powerpedia", which leverages the same software as Wikipedia to create a platform where DOE employees capture and connect information in new and unprecedented ways. Previously, Mr. Burke played a leading role in the development of Intellipedia within the Intelligence Community for which he was awarded a "Service to America Medal" in 2009. His work and lessons learned on innovation and implementing social tools within the enterprise have been captured in a number of books including "The New Social Learning", "Long Fuse, Big Bang: Achieving Long-Term Success Through Daily Victories"; and Enterprise 2.0: New Collaborative Tools for Your Organization's Toughest Challenges.

Driven by the social media revolution occurring on the Internet, large and small organizations are increasingly adopting powerful information technology tools inside the firewall that connect employees and information in unprecedented ways. These new tools and work processes allow employees to collaborate and perform important business tasks in ways that finally break the paradigm of paper as the fundamental container of information. This presentation will explore how these new capabilities and work norms dramatically change the nature of information within organizations and some of the opportunities and challenges those changes have on traditional ideas of information management, records management, learning, and communication.
