Visions of KM 2: another draft

This is one paper that is taking its time :-). It is the second installment of (hopefully) a series of documents attempting to explain the specific relevance and implications of knowledge management to different roles of professionals, providing some common ground. The first one attempted to summarise the matter for IT professionals; the second aimed … Sigue leyendo

Mañana empieza Ciudadanos 2.0

Dentro del exceso 2.0 que nos invade (es peor que lo del iPhone, aquello duró menos) se promueven iniciativas que tienen buen aspecto. Por ejemplo, la que nos han comunicado vía la lista SIS, y que reproduzco por si interesa: Expertos debatirán en Madrid en torno a la «Ciberciudadanía, Gobierno electrónico y nuevos derechos humanos» … Sigue leyendo

Webinar sobre Enterprise Data Mashups de Denodo

Se trata de un webinar orientado a conseguir partners y revendedores (lo que sólo será interesante para algunos) pero buena parte del contenido gira alrededor de un concepto muy útil: la integración de datos dispersos por la empresa (y no normalizados), de modo que se les pueda hacer accesibles e integrarlos con otras fuentes de … Sigue leyendo

Vanitas vanitatis… or is it something else?

Sometimes it may seem that the relevant part of knowledge management (or plain old management) is design and strategy. OK, so it’s crucial, but it’s not enough: the core of it all, the differential, is still in people management. Understanding, dealing with, managing their motivations. Your team, your partners, you name it. And also, those … Sigue leyendo

Social media in the workplace: a SixApart webinar

Thanks to the LawyerKM blog, I just found a quite relevant webinar (indeed, an online recorded presentation hosted by WebEx) from Six Apart, the people who create MovableType (and several more interesting things such as OpenID). The piece is here and it takes a lot to load (it does seem to have a slight quarrel … Sigue leyendo

Sand castles and evolution management

Last night Josien Kapma and John Smith phoned in for a conversation, as part of their effort to catalogue and understand the ways communities raise and use financial resources; I’ll be looking forward to the results. We talked mainly about Macuarium.com, which has a peculiar business model, and we meandered a bit along the way. … Sigue leyendo

Gartner on collaboration tools – full Magic Quadrant report

Gartner’s Team Collaboration ans Social Software «Magic Quadrant» report is online, made available free courtesy of SocialText: The report is useful. It’s plain Gartner can’t find a homogenous set of tools, but at long last it seems to have figured they all are part of a coherent market for a single set of needs. … Sigue leyendo

The law and online Communities of Practice

One of the uncommon characteristics of Macuarium (my little consulting company and the mothership of a few sites and forums) is that it incorporates a legal department right from its inception. Sure, the reason is that the other partner is a lawyer with an interest in the Internet… but also, that I’ve always believed in … Sigue leyendo

The ActKM Conference papers are online (and I didn’t know)

Well, they’re online since the 25th, but as you know I’ve been out of orbit. According to the attendants, this was the best conference organised by the Australian association yet. They sound impressed, and they’re a good reference. And now they’ve posted the presentations and materials. Specifically, here. They had so much traffic that their … Sigue leyendo

Fernando Tellado y las emociones en la red

Decíamos ayer que el tema de la «amistad» y las relaciones online está ahora mismo causando un cierto interés. Y aquí tenemos una serie de reflexiones relevantes no sólo para éso sino (mucho más) para cualquier persona interesada en la gestión de comunidades y equipos complejos en ese entorno. Puedo certificar que vienen de la … Sigue leyendo

Open community model

By the bye, if you have a second to spare this Sunday, you could do worse than read Ed’s write up of Unicom’s Social Tools conference. Besides links to very interesting presentations, he allows a minute for discussing the current tendency of some to mix communities and network concepts and arrive at wrong consequences. I’d … Sigue leyendo

The KB on practical methods for knowledge sharing

Thanks to Ed Mitchell’s tip and blog post I was reminded of the latest free e-book produced by the Knowledgeboard. This year’s crop of practical stories and methods (Hands-on knowledge co-creation and sharing – Practical methods and techniques), highly reccomendable as a read and maybe even as a referece is already available for download here … Sigue leyendo

An insight into Boeing’s KM initiatives

Courtesy of Seth Kahan, as published at com-prac… and really worth a look as it gives a (not overly detailed) view of their KM vision and activities. It seems to be their in-house magazine: Here is the cover story of Boeing Frontiers, about KM, available online: http://www.boeing.com/news/frontiers/cover.pdf Website is here: http://www.boeing.com/news/frontiers/index.html CoPs are mentioned. Not … Sigue leyendo

The unbearable weight of web 2.0

To be precise: the weight given to web 2.0-related criteria in today’s online world. It’s a bit disappointing, but there it is. For instance, take the Macuarium flagship site, Macuarium.com. It’s got a Technorati authority ranking of 90-odd. I mean, for goodness sake, there’s half-year blogs with a higher rating :-). Macuarium.com accounts for over … Sigue leyendo

Upcoming: the Knowledge Wave paper

Friends and colleagues (and some very curious and kind souls) may have noticed that I stopped talking about the second «Visions of KM for management» paper, before summer. There’s a reason: while I believe it was essentially solid, it had a very big flaw and another serious one. It lacked focus and (as Rosanna Tarsiero … Sigue leyendo

Un millón en LinkedIn, y la diferencia entre redes y comunidades

Bueno, después de un breve episodio lúdicofestivo (o no), volvemos al tema titular del blog. Esta tarde he aceptado una propuesta de link de una conocida que lleva un gran grupo de usuarios Mac en Venezuela. Conozco su trabajo y la conozco a ella, pero lo cierto es que normalmente soy más exigente en cuanto … Sigue leyendo

Folksonomies, keywords, tags, and ECM

Never say never: I didn’t hold them as a reference but I was evidently wrong. A colleague has just pointed me to a recent (July 2007) paper published by Oracle, and which can be found here, that discusses the concepts of tagging and folksonomies. It bridges (quite well) the gap with pre-web 2.0 taxonomy and … Sigue leyendo

A relevant webinar on Tuesday

I just found out, and I hope to find also time to attend: Forum One’s Bill Johnston, Intuit’s George Jacquette and Shared Insight’s Aaron Strout are hosting a WebEx webinar about online community management topics on September 25th. Go have a look at the topics covered, they may be interesting for you. They won’t be … Sigue leyendo

With the slandering populace

Nancy White shared a snippet and link on Friday (over at On-Fac mailing list) that’s worth commenting. http://www.theage.com.au/news/web/firm-sues-forum-to-silence-critics/2007/09/12/1189276778252.html Apparently a software firm down under (2Clix) is suing a forum where its products were being subject to very harsh criticism by many users. 2Clix claim to have asked the site to retire the offending posts, and … Sigue leyendo

How much do they spend on communities?

They’re at it again: the fellows at Forum One’s research outfit has produced a nice report, summarised in this interesting post. It gives definite answers and numbers on a few interesting issues, namely: – How much are companies saying they spend on «community»? (You’ll be surprised: they say it’s high). – Can they find the … Sigue leyendo
