A Personal Information and Knowledge Infrastructure Integrator

K. Andrew Edmonds, James Blustein and Don Turnbull (2004). A Personal Information and Knowledge Infrastructure Integrator. Journal of Digital Information, Volume 5 (1), Article No. 243.

"The Next Big Thing is being grown organically, cultivated by software developers and pruned by personal Weblog publishers. The rising Weblogging space of the Internet is looking more like traditional hypertext than the Web of the 1990s. The ways in which Weblogging has evolved beyond the previous limitations of the Web as hypertext, and the ways Weblogging is evolving towards common-use hypertext destined to play a critical role in everyday life, will be explored."

Blogs: uma Ágora na Net

Rodrigues, C. (2004?). Blogs: uma Ágora na Net. Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI):

"O presente trabalho irá centrar-se unicamente na análise de blogs portugueses. Tentaremos perceber se será possível aplicar o conceito de esfera pública defendida por Habermas aos blogs actuais?"

Poderá ser interessante relacionar este trabalho com o trabalho desenvolvido com Elmine Wijnia [this work focus: aproach is on portuguese blogs trying to establish if the concept argued by Habermas aplies to blogs. The autor defendes it can... but much work as to be done.]

PS [2006/Ago/22] - Resolvi juntar a esta mensagem a indicação de que a Catarina Rodrigues já defendeu a sua tese em Julho de 2006, na UBI. Ver notícia aqui. Fiquei com curiosidade de saber se ela teria visto a mensagem que aqui coloquei em 2004 com a indicação do trabalho da Elmine... enfim, pode ser que um dia saiba a resposta e que os parabéns sejam encontrados ;-)

Soluções de suporte ao conhecimento e processos de trabalho (2)

Na sequência de uma entrada do ano passado [primeiro contacto com este projecto em Outubro de 2003 - Soluções de suporte ao conhecimento e processos de trabalho], a Lilia descreve com mais detalhe o projecto MILK (Multimedia Interactions for Learning and Knowing), depois de ter estado no MILK Forum, em Milão, no passado dia 9 de Julho. De facto, não há substituto para o contacto directo com os objectos ;-)

Information Management vs Knowledge Management

Continuing on the tread initiated by Martin (see Where is Tom [Wilson]?...), now the focus is on the discussion of IM vs KM and building up. Lateste comments by Tom Collins There's No Such Thing As ... Knowledge Management?:

"But KM is concerned with more than just the life cycle of information. It is concerned with the life cycle of knowledge. This includes both the artifacts or representations of knowledge (which might have that fleeting life cycle, after which they become information) and the processes by which knowledge is acquired, created, and conveyed (which are not necessarily so brief). brief). "

Fang Wu e Bernardo A. Huberman (2004, Julho) . Social Structure and Opinion Formation. HP Laboratories, Palo Alto, CA 94304 [via Many2Many, by Ross Mayfield].

"(...) coexistence of opinions within a social network is in agreement with the often observed locality effect, in which an opinion or a fad is localized to given groups without infecting the whole society. We verified these predictions, as well as those concerning the fragility of opinions and the importance of highly connected individuals in opinion formation (...)"

Ferramentas sociais e weblogs

Mais tarde editarei esta entrada, mas por agora deixo apenas parte do original, que toca numa questão importante "libertar o potencial creativo de constelações flexíveis de comunidades"

Blog of Collective Intelligence: What is social about "social tools"?: "add the technological innovation of weblogs will discover its full power in the enterprise when associated with the social innovation of communities of practice. Why? When we free the creative potential of flexible constellations of communities of interest and practice, it will boost their members’ identity, mutual care and professional pride. The emerging generation of social tools can be optimized for powering up that process. When that happens, blogs graduate from personal publishing tool and become a potent enabler of collective intelligence."

Personal view of Blogging...

I like this simple way of putting it... by Piers Young:

"Blogging, it seems to me, is a way for people to help themselves make sense of something, to clarify the way in which they view one or more topics. They are personal. Focused on collaboration perhaps, but personal views of how the world makes sense."

Although, for me, I would substitute 'personal views' by 'multiple personal views'.

BlogTalk, Weblogs and Knowledge

All about sharing. The second BlogTalk (in Vienna) i wasn't abble go. But this year things look better, cause i know where to «look for information» that's being shared and agregated (topic exchange), happening here and now (well almost, that's why they are asynchronous ;-), during this last 2 days.

This is not because i'm more technical aware, but because i've came to read Lilia's, Martin's, JJ's, Fernando's weblogs, and many others that are part of their ecosystem, during this past year, and they are present at BlogTalk.
In their spaces one is abble to follow some of their readings of the event. Sure they are not my «looking glasses» but they convey reflections, notes and questions, that relate to what i'm learning...
Yes, it's all about sharing those, once private notes, that became public (wiki BlogTalkViennaNotes, from Joi Ito, a collaborative effort to notedown the presentations at BlogTalk 2.0). Maybe you don't know, but this means a lot for someone that was not abble to be there. Thank you :-)

Onde está o Vitorino?...

...boa altura para fazer o registo na comunidade do KnowledgeBoard e dinamizar a discussão ;-)

"However very few projects address the area of social complexity, which we contend in this study has high potential for European specific Knowledge Management. This is surprising bearing in mind the objectives of the KMME initiative were to focus on the concept of complexity a holistic approach to Knowledge Management. The subject of complexity is not widely recognised within the KnowledgeBoard community (only several references made on the Web site)." in Business Knowledge Management: A study on market prospects, business needs and technological trends (2004), p.147
