Knowledge Management aka Social Media aka Cultural Change

In his brilliant article over on Cognitive Egde today Dave Snowden ties together my great passions in a coherent way that reflects a point in the divergence of thinking that has been dawning on me. Having schooled in Social Media under the brilliant Antony Mayfield I’ve seen first hand how the simplest enterprise social network […]
