From the internet to the intranet

When we try to leverage successful collaborative tools on the internet like blogs, wikis and social bookmarking within enterprises we realize that the “enterprise” is a smaller beast with very different and difficult dimensions to address. Is scale important for the succesful adoption of social software? If scale isn’t important, how easy or difficult is it for organizations to build a flat knowledge ecosystem like Wikipedia to replace its “walled garden” KM systems? Would it be feasible for organizations to allow employees to self-select themselves into activites within these flat systems? What do you think are the other enablers and disablers of social software in enterprises?
