My mind really resonated with this short blog post entitled The Tyranny of the Explicit by Johnnie Moore.

I agree with him when he says that we are increasingly trying to document and control the world - to professionalise it, to require academic qualifications and certification. I find it a worrying trend. And I love Johnnie's labelling of it in all its forms as the tyranny of the explicit!

In the context of KM, Dave Snowden has this to say about KM certification and John Maloney something similar. I totally agree!

Euan Semple also recently commented in a similar vain on the professionalism of work.
