January 24th, 2009 · 5 Comments

1. KM and Enterprise 2.0: As defined by McAfee, E2.0 synthesizes Web 2.0, social software, and social media. Social Software tools focused on Web 2.0 technology that can be useful inside the organizational firewall, emergence and self-organization, egalitarianism in software applications, these draw the primary features of all three components into E2.0. We’ve already seen [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part 24, Defining “KM 2.0”

January 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off

The KM 2.0 meme first appeared on October 5, 2005. Euan Semple (who may have originated the term) seemed to equate it with: “ . . . people, connected people, empowered people, people who don’t always do what you expect or what you tell them but invariably end up taking you to exciting places you [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part 23, Defining “Social Media” and “Enterprise 2.0”

January 20th, 2009 · Comments Off

Today, I’ll continue with definitions I need to clarify relationships among the members what I’ve been calling the “2.0 cluster.” Social Media The least clearly formulated idea in the “2.0 cluster” is “social media.” While the proliferation of definitions and conceptions surrounding this term is not yet as fulsome as with KM itself, the ambiguity [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part 22, Defining “Web 2.0” and “Social Software”

January 18th, 2009 · Comments Off

While the variations on the various 2.0 cluster memes are also beginning to proliferate as more people write about them, it is, except in the case of “social media,” comparatively easy to put one’s fingers on dominant definitions of these categories, because early and continuing work on each of them is more closely associated with [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part 21, Knowledge Management: a Single Meme, Multiple Meanings, and a Very Heterogeneous Movement

January 17th, 2009 · Comments Off

People who view Knowledge Management from outside the field often make the mistake of viewing KM as much more homogeneous a field than it in fact is. They tend to think that “KM” means something very specific, and that what it means is the understanding of it they may have gained by reading one or [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part 20, “2.0” This and “2.0” That

January 16th, 2009 · Comments Off

In earlier posts on KM 2.0 I’ve critically reviewed many interpretations of aspects of the “2.0” trend relating to the idea of KM 2.0. Of course, such interpretations don’t end in April 2008, but have continued since then, and, if my purpose was to complete an up-to-date survey, I could continue my critical discussions through [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part Nineteen, Ray Sims, Web 2.0, E 2.0, and KM

November 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

This post completes my analysis of Ray Sims’s presentation to the Boston KM Forum on April 9, 2008. Ray envisions three scenarios to relate Web 2.0 and KM. The first of these states that “Web 2.0 is ideally situated to support Personal Knowledge Management / Personal Learning Environment (PKM/ PLE).” Ray argues for that by [...]

October 3rd, 2008 · Comments Off

Mark Frydenberg offered an excellent slide show called “Web 2.0 Tools for Knowledge Management.” Its strength was its coverage of Web 2.0. It included a slide with a number of [...]

KM 2.0 and Knowledge Management: Part Fifteen, E 2.0 and Mike Gotta

September 30th, 2008 · Comments Off

Over the past week, I’ve taken a break from this series, but I think that now is a good time to get back to it, since there’s still much to do. In April of 2008, the debate over KM 2.0 received a number of interesting contributions. The first I’ll consider here is Mike Gotta’s blog [...]
