The Dog that Didn't Bark
Simon Phipps wonders aloud why, with the exception of my post yesterday on the launch of Java.net weblogs & wikis, blogspace hasn't noticed it.
The simple answer is the two communities have yet to be bridged. They have requisite blogging tools in place, they just need to engage in conversations outside their domain.
Also, quite frankly, its launch was lost in the hubub of JavaOne.
Dave SnowdenMatt Mower has posted some great notes from a talk by KM guru Dave Snowden: Cynicism and Serendipity.
...For 20-30 years we've operated a model of the human brain closer to cybernetics than neuroscience. The assumption is that thought is a logical, rational, linear process. This is wrong. So is Myers-Briggs and all these other attempts to put people into boxes. It is reminiscent of Brave New World...The human brain is adaptive. The way we see the world changes according to context. Disruption changes brain patterns and the key thing in human intelligence is patterns. We match stimulus against patterns to know how to act. The brain creates patterns. Hence KM has a problem: We cannot codify patterns for use in text books...
3rd generation approach to KM (Post-SETI - Nonaka) separate knowledge into:
- content management...
Trust is not a property. It's an emergent property. You can't make people trust each other. You can't train people to have qualities. It doesn't work...
Many other gems in this long post, good frameworks, worth a full read.
Capitulation & Upgrade
Bought more storage for my Radio Weblog. I am planning to move off of Radio to MT soon, but here's my rationale for continuing to invest in this platform.
- Sunk costs
- Rather give my money to Dave than some convicted monopolist
- Switching costs (really a Con, on many levels)
- Radio Userland stopped innovating and now demands others to do so for it
- The aggregator is the reason I bought the product. When we took a look at Many-to-Many's RSS stats it showed that the vast majority of RSS subscribers were Radio users. But if my aggregator had less funk and more jibe it might not fail to subscribe to MT feeds as much. And stand alone aggregators are improving. And then I wouldn't have to deal with the Image Spam problem (posts with large images made by people with large screens that stretch your reader beyond the limits of your screen).
- Did I mention I am planning to upgrade?
