This is one of the most powerful descriptions of what knowledge and knowledge management should really be all about that I have ever come across. Notice 'technology' is not mentioned!
Knowledge is embodied in people gathered in communities and networks.

The road to knowledge is via people, conversations, connections and relationships.

Knowledge surfaces through dialog, all knowledge is socially mediated and access to knowledge is by connecting to people that know or know who to contact.

In the knowledge economy, connections and relationships count more than personal knowhow and access to content.

The environment changes so fast, the optimum knowledge strategy is instant access to people & their ideas and continuous awareness & learning in a supportive community.

People and discourse communities provide the 'filter' mechanism for alerting and awareness.

This helps to keep your focus, provides market intelligence and affords a platform for negotiating meaning and value.
