3 9/11/2008 Blogs — A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. (Wikipedia)

4 9/11/2008 White Papers — A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that often addresses problems and how to solve them. White papers are used to educate readers and help people make decisions. They are used in politics and business. They can also be a government report outlining policy. (Wikipedia)

5 9/11/2008 Downloads — To download is to receive data from a remote or central system, such as a webserver, FTP server, mail server, or other similar systems. A download is any file that is offered for downloading or that has been downloaded. The word's primary usage comes in the form of a verb. Increasingly, websites that offer streaming media or media displayed in-browser, such as YouTube, and which place restrictions on the ability of users to save these materials to their computers after they have been received, say that downloading is not permitted. That is, "download" is used to mean "receive and save" instead of simply "receive". (Wikipedia)

6 9/11/2008 Reviews — A review is an evaluation of a publication, such as a movie, video game, musical composition, book, or a piece of hardware like a car, appliance, or computer. In addition to a critical statement, the review's author may assign the work a rating to indicate its relative merit. More loosely, an author may review current events or items in the news. (Wikipedia)

7 9/11/2008 CIO Sessions — CIO is abbreviated for Chief Information Officer. (Wikipedia)

8 9/11/2008 Podcasts — A podcast is a series of digital-media files, which are distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers. The term podcast, like broadcast, can refer either to the series of content itself or to the method by which it is syndicated; the latter is also called podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster. (Wikipedia)

9 9/11/2008 Mobile — Mobile may refer to: — Mobile computing, a generic term describing one's ability to use technology in mobile environments — Mobile game, a video game played on a mobile phone, smartphone, PDA or handheld computer — Mobile Magazine, a publication on portable electronics — Mobile radio, wireless communications systems and devices which are based on radio frequencies — Mobile rig — Mobile station, user equipment and software needed for communication with a wireless telephone network — Mobile Web, the World Wide Web as accessed from mobile devices using Mobile Web Browser — Mobile TV, TV services viewed via a mobile device. (Wikipedia) — Mobile technology is transforming our society and nowhere is this more apparent than in the workplace. (

10 9/11/2008 Webcasts — A webcast is a media file distributed over the Internet using streaming media technology. (Wikipedia)

11 9/11/2008 Case studies — Rather than using samples and following a rigid protocol to examine limited number of variables, case study methods involve an in-depth, longitudinal examination of a single instance or event: a case. They provide a systematic way of looking at events, collecting data, analyzing information, and reporting the results. As a result the researcher may gain a sharpened understanding of why the instance happened as it did, and what might become important to look at more extensively in future research. Case studies lend themselves to both generating and testing hypotheses. (Wikipedia) — Another suggestion is that case study should be defined as a research strategy, an empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context. Case study research means single and multiple case studies, can include quantitative evidence, relies on multiple sources of evidence and benefits from the prior development of theoretical propositions. Case studies should not be confused with qualitative research and they can be based on any mix of quantitative and qualitative evidence. Single-subject research provides the statistical framework for making inferences from quantitative case-study data. This is also supported and well-formulated in (Lamnek, 2005): "The case study is a research approach, situated between concrete data taking techniques and methodologic paradigms.“(Wikipedia)
