Knowledge Management

The February, 2002 issue of Darwin magazine carried a cover story by Susannah Patton. The article was titled Putting the Pieces Together. Without the political stench that Daschle and Gephardt have unleashed this week, Ms. Patton wrote a clear and thorough piece about the incredible challenge of tying fragments of information together. She covers the technical challenge, but she also covers the cultural challenges of getting agencies to share when they have most often competed.

The fact that this was written well before this week's nonsense makes it timely!

SBC - Now Bellsouth!

BellSouth will eliminate 4,000 to 5,000 white-collar and nonmanagement positions in a bid to cut costs. The regional phone company plans to take a $250 million to $300 million charge to cover the cuts. [Wall Street Journal]

Exclusiveness can mean many things!

Exclusive parties, exclusive neighborhoods, exclusive country clubs have tended to be things that some people pursued with vigor in today's rat race. However, exclusivity has a clear downside. The notion that our fellow man is not "one of us," sends the wrong message when we're talking about caring for others. Whether large or small, legalistic Christian organizations simply aren't needed. The last thing this world needs is another restrictive, exclusive church bent on enforcing its own interpretation of rules.

To Catholic leaders I say, "get rid of anyone mistreating children and see that they are prosecuted fully." To legalistic pastors I say, "Find a way to embrace - not condemn." This woman's child doesn't need your particular style of mistreatment either!

They'll know we're Christians by our exotic dancing. A single mother condemned by her church for her job is holier than it is. []
