Thinking back to my review of KnowingKnowledge, it struck me that George pays relatively little attention to knowledge representation in his writing. This may be expected as he concentrates on how knowledge is changing and notes a shift from 'hard' to 'soft' knowledge, where soft = more immediate, more emergent, more closely tied to conversation than content. Knowledge says George is now more than ever about "the now', and connections trump content in a world of immediacy and 'know now'. As we capture more ephemeral content in audio and video files, I'm wondering what we need to do to get the most from these media as representations & knowledge stores?
IMO KnowingKnowledge is an important event, I'm looking forward to the hard copy book release (now 10/10 I'm hearing), publication of the graphics on flick'r, availability of pdfs for downloading and most of all to the conversations George wishes to build around his thinking.
This is a subject that matters more than most in KM - for without a clear understanding of what knowledge really is and how it is changing - KM will continue to go in circles. Please join in this important conversation, let's hear your opinion, beliefs, mental models, heuristics and practical tips so we can all grow a little wiser together.
