Well, its evening now and I have come to end of doing stuff that earns me money and can get back to investigating blogging and KM. So much stuff to plough through and read - but very very exciting indeed ... there are some very insightful people out there in cyberspace - here is a quote from Doc Searls weblog:

"Blogs, I believe, are much different than diaries, with which they are often compared. Their very setting attests to a social as well as a personal purpose. I believe they are about sharing and growing what we know and what we can tell.

I also believe they will succeed where "knowlegdege management" (and every other kind of management) has failed. It's the same reason online bazaars like eBay are succeeding where every business intermediary with a 2 in the middle of its acronym is struggling. They're about us. They organize themselves around whatever topic gets us going, for as long as the topic stays interesting. Then we ? whoever we are ? move on, keeping safe in the tacit what those who operate only in the explicit will never understand, much less "manage."

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
