I had such a tremendous response to my previous list of micro-blogging and enterprise 2.0 resources, that I thought I would research just a little bit more to see what else I could find. I came across this “live binder” of Enterprise 2.0 resources put together by Ellen Trude, a teacher by profession, and who is currently a training consultant for social media and special projects concerning collaborative platforms. Her live binder contains an immense amount of Enterprise 2.0 studies, blog posts and research that makes it one of the most comprehensive resources I’ve ever come across. If you’re putting together a presentation, post or paper on Enterprise 2.0, this is a resource you shouldn’t miss.

So here it is. I hope you enjoy your new bedtime reading material.
