Recently, I participated in a real-time Twitter event conducted by BusinessWeek.

I thought we might make it into an article at that famous and well-respected publication, but alas, we didn’t. But the process they went through to crowdsource ideas and experts was telling and interesting. Perhaps a sign of the times. The media is increasingly under fire trying to generate meaningful and profitable traffic.

The result of the Twitter discussion was they then turned the discussion into a special report that included more in-depth discussion with some of the participants, into video interviews, and into a couple of traditional articles. If you deal with remote workers or virtual workforces, the BusinessWeek special report may be worth a read for you. We’re not mentioned in the report, so feel free to come back later and learn more about how we help companies manage their virtual and remote workforces.  Or check out the Shiftboard case study section to learn more.
