Thoughts on Structured/Unstructured and Shared Information Management using Wiki and other emerging technologies
Thursday, September 23, 2004

Pollard's Principles of Knowledge Management - a concise and great set of ground realities that the organizations need to be awre of with respect to Knowledge Management infrastructure. Must read.

In particular, I liked Knowledge Workers Don't Know How to do Knowledge Work due to information overload, Knowledge is Best Transferred by Conversations and we need to respect that, Everyone Learns, Organizes and Processes Information Differently - and so integration among various tools is important, Management Doesn't Want or Need KM Decision Support because they are hired for their expertise and decision making - for which they don't depend on other knowledge, and most important - Stories are Critical to Knowledge Transfer - eventually it is storytelling that is most effective.

"Your mouse follows mine" Bookmarklet idea ... ("What am I doing now?" protocol)

As I move my mouse cursor over a webpage, I would like my peer (who is also seeing the same web page) to have his mouse cursor point to same information. As if we are sharing a screen - but not one of those methods such as netmeeting, but a simple open mechanism. Very useful add-on to wiki systems - makes it simple to "discuss" around same themes in a organizational setting. (Of course, you discuss over phone or IM).

The architecture will need a central server: You report mouse location (within the DOM!) to this server and your peer will listen on these events. Ideally this should be part of blog server itself and a simple mechanism to allow your peers to subscribe to your events.

This also leads to extension of blog concept to a generalization of protocol for exchanging "What I am doing now" - in real time. For example the sites I am visiting just now, or research I am doing. The interested folks from the community can join together and produce a common blog as a result. (Such an interaction often tends to be more productive.)

Perhaps someone already has this implementation!
