    [Knowledge Management] Wear Sunscreen When Looking Up
    Wear Sunscreen  is perhaps one of those extremely rare video clips with a rather strong, inspiring and incredibly humanising message  one could bump into and that, throughout the course of the years, it gets better and better.

    [Knowledge Management] Why I, Too, Killed My LinkedIn Account
    Back in the day, when I was just getting started with my early days around social computing evangelism, I must confess that I used to think that people who didn’t have a social profile in all of the major social networking tools out there just didn’t get it. You know, you had to have a profile out there all over the place. Silly Silly me. You see?

    [Knowledge Management] Waking up.
    Nevertheless, in my narrow field of knowledge management, for specific firms, something interesting is happening. ’ They are realizing that humans are not resources, information is not knowledge, and processes are fundamentally flawed guesses about the future.

    [Knowledge Management] The Therapy of Blogging While Showing Off Your Ideas Out in the Open
    You may have noticed how over the course of the last few days I haven’t had much of a chance to blog over here. And it is not because things may well be so incredibly hectic that I wouldn’t have enough time for it.

    [Knowledge Management] A simple approach to KM
    Knowledge management (KM) does not have to be a major enterprise effort. But the lack of KM strategy can be a drag on innovation or hamper decision-making in a knowledge intensive organization.
