Knowledge management mailing lists

This year I’ve been looking into more online resources than I can shake a stick at, and indeed become a member of a few more mailing lists than I can keep track of. And I was already a member of some. Up to now, my takeaway on the best of them is this:

Com-pracs: General communities conversation. Some very interesting members, prone to theoretical discussions (although they have migrated to ActKM of late), currently low activity. My favourite for a long time.

On-fac: General online facilitation conversation. Some very relevant tidbits from time to time. Low to medium activity.

ActKM: General knowledge management with an Asian-Australian slant (they even hold conferences down under). Some serious solid messages, many interesting participants, lots of theoretical discussion (of a rather high level and a rather low impact on actual work). High to frantic activity.

SIKMleaders: Originally built around monthly conference calls and presentations (tremendously interesting) and actual senior KM practitioners (wide perspective, serious experience, more in-house managers than consultants), it had low but very relevant activity. These last few months it seems to be morphing into a more theoretical outfit (or at least a suspicious interest in wikifying).

e-Mint: Just joined, due to peer pressure :-). Community management with an Anglo-saxon bent (meaning most members are either British or from the US). I’m still amazed at the relevance and quality of the conversation (quite a bit of it too), and the practical baggage of some members.

Curiously (or not) all but one of the above are hosted on Yahoo Groups. I know a couple more lists (including two Spanish ones) running on different services, but they’re not as good as these.

Any reccomendations? Resources I shouldn’t miss?

Update: Stan Garfield sent in his collection of KM community links, worth a read.

  1. Miguel,

    In the KM resources section of my site I’ve tried my best to keep track of the many different KM Communities that are out there:


    Hope this helps!
