"During the next year, companies should become more aware as to how technologies such as blogging and podcasting will affect their businesses. That's according to Gartner who said enterprises should be more inventive with their technology.

Those innovations are driving a second Internet revolution, a time when businesses can't afford to be content that they are simply online, said Mark Raskino, a research fellow at Gartner. Podcasting and blogging are affecting businesses both internally and externally, he said."
