The other major keynote at KM Asia was Nancy Dixon and it was good to meet up again after several years. The last conference we spoke at together was in Caracas along with Tom Stewart and others in a different age. She quoted Alan Webber of Fast Company who said: What’s new about the new economy is that work is conversation. Partly in order to provide continuity, but also as a part of a general theme I am developing that social computing takes on the form of an older oral tradition, I added my own codicil: It always has been, we just forgot about it for a while. This is important, its not that social computing creating some completely new form of human interaction, what it has done is to enable conversations across barriers and boundaries. We can now be a global tribe (or rather tribes), if we can make the changes that the technology permits. Given some of the conversations that ensued from my brief polemic on IT departments that change may not be easy!
