Well Christmas is almost upon us and I am busy preparing for another SE Asia trip to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok for almost the whole of January.
The main reason for my trip is to give a keynote talk on KM and Social Tools plus a Knowledge Cafe to explore the opportunities, challenges and risks of Social Computing at a series of IBM workshops in all three of these cities to help their customers understand the issues of implementing IBM's new integrated social software product Lotus Connections.
I am in a unique position to do this, given my knowledge of KM, my own use and understanding of Social Tools and almost 20 years working with Lotus Notes!
As ever, I am making the most of my trip. I hope to run an open Knowledge Cafe at the Multimedia University in Kuala Lumpur in partnership with The Knowledge Management Centre of Multimedia University and KMTalk; give a talk/mini knowledge cafe at Universiti Teknologi Mara in Malaysia and at the National Library Board in Singapore and possibly a KM seminar for Bangkok University. Plus a few other pieces of work, events and meetings!
I still have some spare time and if you live in the region and would like to meet with me - even just for a coffee - drop me an e-mail.
And finally, I would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a merry New Year. I will back next year when in May 2008 this knowledge letter will be 9 years old!
