It was good to see the strategy workshop picked up by Ian Thorpe in his blog and he beat me to publishing the final overview of the process (see below). Later today I have a keynote to give where I intend to focus on narrative forms of knowing, but more on that tomorrow. For […]
I’m back at KM World in Washington having keynoted at the event for well over a decade now. Once it was virtual and I was represented on stage by a pumpkin, but I’ve learnt my lesson from that and now I turn up! It is now the main KM event worldwide with other events […]
A long day, starting with an early morning alarm to make the 0701 from Swindon and ending up with a late night arrival in Trieste for State of the Net 2014 of which more over the next few days. The reason for the early morning train was to give the opening keynote at KM UK. David […]
I promised yesterday to talk about peer-to-peer knowledge flow. Like yesterday's post this has an ideological aspect as well as a practical one and its nice when they coincide. I argued yesterday that people's own voice should be heard, and their own interpretation of that voice. Removing mediating layers of interpretation reduced the dangers of […]
I ran through the various papers on narrative yesterday. I spent longer than I planned on that post as I ended up reading several of them and taking notes. We are looking at the overall training programme at the moment and I am thinking of bringing back a two day course on narrative. I used […]

A brief investigation indicates its a variant on three men and a dog, or in this […]
When we put CalmAlpha together back in January I was somewhat shamed by Joseph Pelrine talking about his use of ABIDE, something that I developed as a pairing for ASHEN the best part of a decade ago, but then left it to go into decline. Others, Viv Read for example, argued that it should be […]
Around two decades ago I was arguing that object orientation was not just a way of creating reusable code, but was a more profound shift to enabling architectures that could combine people and technology in evolving systems. The first part was generally accepted, the second more controversial. I then seemed, in the words of Mark […]
In my last post, I drew upon lessons from the psychology of visual perception to reflect upon how we understand peripheral threats and opportunities in the 21st century. I wrote that, “the only way to translate the sensory inputs of diffuse signals into meaningful patterns is through movement, i.e., interaction.” In the savannahs and jungles […]
