Every year Jane Hart runs a survey of learning tools
Here’s my entry for 2019:
Hugo Earlier this year I migrated my blog from WordPress to Hugo and I’m extremely happy with the result.
I realised that I wasn’t going to have the time to both write my own theme that I liked and update the site content, and the ugliness of the part-built theme was putting me off using the site – so I’ve grabbed the new Twenty Seventeen theme, and will run with that…
Notwithstanding what I wrote about Breaking the Ubiquity of Stream Mode I pretty much gave up on Smallest Federated Wiki when I realised that Yahoo!
In Breaking the Ubiquity of Stream Mode I wrote that, inspired by “Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – The Unfollowing Experiment”, I would start taking overt control of my Twitter use.
I shall use this post to both plan and report progress

First part is to decide on the lists I want. I can’t disagree with the initial triumvirate described by Luis – “Collaborators, Cooperators and People I Learn From”
A blog post by Luis Suarez has served nicely as a catalyst to start crystallizing some thoughts from the last couple of weeks.
Discomfort I’ve become increasingly aware of tensions I feel when I think about how I manage my personal sense-making. In hindsight the seeds were sown when taking Harold Jarche’s PKM in 40 days course. During that study I realised that although I “talk the talk” around PKM, mostly what I do is the “Seek” part of Seek-Sense-Share, with sharing only at the level of filtering a set of public bookmarks.
I’m currently following Harold Jarche‘s “Personal Knowledge Management in 40 days” course. We’re just over half way through, and Harold recently challenged us to reflect on what we have learned so far, and what we would like to achieve.
At the start of the course I thought that I was fairly familiar with the material, and that this was really just a refresher. Much of what has been presented is familiar, but looking at it again, with specific exercises, has made me look closer.
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:
Deleted Knowledge and Learning – seemed broken in that Twitter consistently reports 0 members
Replaced with km+learning+network
Created BI and Data
Talking PKM with my CEO…
Talking to a colleague about their experience with Curatr
Signing up to PKM in 40 days
Unfortunately the links to a personal instance of Wikka, and the images on the old blog post have not survived various hosting changes. I can’t find source files from which I developed the architecture drawings either. Ten years on I still think it is informative to think through the performance of PKM processes in terms of roles, and this is something to revisit.
Back in July Harold Jarche posted a useful deconstruction of the processes involved in web-based personal knowledge management (PKM).
