The future of KM

A number of people have already picked up on Dave Snowdon’s excellent article on the future of KM. Just mentioning it here mainly for my own future reference.  There a couple of points that particularly resonate for me. One is the growing recognition of the (much under-hyped) role of Librarians in bringing intellectual rigor to KM, and the other is the (much over-hyped) importance of “tacit to explicit” knowledge transformation. Dave reminds us that the key components for effective KM are connecting and collaborating as human beings, and that structuring and organising information (usually with the help and assistance of IT) may help us to make more sense of the environment we work in, but doesn’t necessarily help us to improve our knowledge. For me,  ‘KM’ means human interaction of some sort, and anything that makes this easier is to achieve – whether it be social networking tools or Web 2.0 – has my full attention.

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
