Shift - Episode 001 - Welcome to Shift

This is the first of a series of podcasts from Megan Murray and Euan Semple during which we will be discussing the ins and outs of using the social web for business. We focus mostly on using the tools inside large organisations and discuss some of the challenges and opportunities. We have both had a lot of experience with a wide range of organisations and are keen to discuss the cultures and managerial issues that tend to be forgotten as discussions focus on technology.  Apologies in advance for the sound quality of the first few epidsodes - as a former BBC sound engineer you'd have thought I'd have done better!
