Personal Knowledge Management – why and what

I’m refocusing my study and practice around Personal Knowledge Management (and taking Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge mastery in 40 days course). A few short points on the “why and what” of PKM – this is a placeholder post that I will expand with more links over time. Why is Personal Knowledge Management important? In very simple terms, we all need to earn a living, and in the modern workplace some of the most important facets contributing to that are:

Twitter List Upkeep

Deleted Knowledge and Learning – seemed broken in that Twitter consistently reports 0 members Replaced with km+learning+network Created BI and Data Created DevOps Created Cloud Created ID+AccessManagement

Social Bookmarking

Going back to basics, but on the principle of narrating my work, here’s a short post I published today inside the firewall… What is it? Most people will be familiar with the idea of “bookmarks” (aka “favourites”) in a web browser – the menu option on IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox etc. to save the site links that I use most often, or find most interesting. Social Bookmarking tools take this idea and extend it in ways that are not only useful to me as an individual, but which also make it simple to share links with other people.

An experiment in working aloud

As part of the site revamp, I wanted a place where I could put “narrating my work” type posts that were outside of the main site flow – the nature of these are that they are often quick and partial, and I find having them in the main flow inhibits my writing. The obvious place to start, was with a Custom Post Type, but unfortunately most of the things I use to write to this site (Word and the WordPress iOS app) don’t support CPTs.
