Over at the Forrester Blog, Ted Schadler posted some prelim results from Forrester’s new Workforce Technographics survey.

Aviary blogs-forrester-com Picture 1What surprised me was the fact that Baby Boomers are neck-and-neck with Gen X to contribute to discussion forums, and yet they have not interest to contribute to wiki’s? At first glance it would seem that discussion forums provide a space for people to voice their opinions and the Boomers I know are very opinionated! But a wiki is also used to share opinions so why aren’t they using it?

Maybe it’s the collaboration side of  it? In wiki’s each individuals’ contribution is treated as equal, so perhaps that is what is putting off Boomers?
