“The real business is the set of connections among people.” (p.120)

“Intranets are enabling your best people to hyperlink themselves together, outside the org chart. They’re incredibly productive and innovative. They’re telling one another the truth, in very human voices.” (pg. xxix)

clue map
“Sometime soon, companies will have to open up significant portions of their intranets – while still protecting their few genuine secrets – in order to create relationships with their markets rather than barriers against them.” (pg. 24)
clue map
“The Internet/intranet dichotomy reinforces the ‘not invented here’ syndrome that has damaged so many companies. Corporations have long understood that they have to tear down the internal walls that prevent necessary cross-functional communication. Now they have to tear down their external walls as well.” (p.24)

“We don’t know what the Web is for but we’ve adopted it faster than any technology since fire.” (p. 43)
“The Internet more resembles an ancient bazaar than it fits the business models companies try to impose upon it.” (p.xxxi)

clue map
“The Web is a document world…documents are our most richly evolved type of data.” (p.145)
“The world of information on the Web is, therefore, a whole lot richer than the domain of database information in both content and structure.” (p.146)
clue map
“Knowledge management has become a hot topic precisely because we silently recognize that our information isn’t yielding understanding. But information is unsatisfying precisely because it’s managed; to make it manageable, we strip out context and voice.” (p.149)
clue map
“Conversations among human beings sound human. They are conducted in a human voice.” (clue 3)
“We are immune to advertising. Just forget it.” (Clue 74)

“You’re too busy ‘doing business’ to answer our email?” (clue 77)
