Melissie Rumizen

October 25, 2007

Today would have been Melissie’s birthday, author of Complete Idiot’s Guide to Knowledge Management, friend to many, passionate advocate of the human dimension of knowledge management. She died after a long struggle with cancer last December. There are plans for a tribute at KM World in a few weeks time. Aside from reflecting on memories of working with Melissie, its also interesting to see the way in which electronic systems create fragments of memory and triggers. Plaxo brought me a routine birthday notification yesterday which was anything but routine when I read it.
