  Just citations

Two citations via Seb's Open Research

Unraveling the Mysteries of the Connected Age by Duncan J. Watts

As different as all these questions appear, they are all versions of the same question -- how does individual behavior aggregate to collective behavior? As simply as it can be asked, this is one of the most fundamental and pervasive questions in all of science.

Osho's quote 

This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity -- only then can you dissolve it. A weak ego cannot be dissolved. And this becomes a problem.

Today is the day of awaking memories: first I find Don Clark writing on knowledge creating and now it's about Osho, one of those writers who shaped my thinking about life... Time to think...

  N=1: Population Of One

New (for me) blog: N=1: Population Of One on "Science, HCI, Psychology, Human Factors" by Sylvie Noël. It's a pity that I miss the RSS and can't become a regular reader.

  Quaerere SIG news

Updates on what's going on in Quaerere SIG:

I republished original version of Jim McGee's "Knowledge work as craft work" at the KnowledgeBoard

I'm trying to get members joining Quaerere blog, started KnowledgeBoard members blogroll  and collected links to everything about blogs at KnowledgeBoard

We discuss KM Summers School 2003 themes to be and “Emergent KM Research” – proposal from Quaerere to KAngels

  Yahoo list on knowledge work

Thanks to Denham Grey I have discovered Yahoo group kw-km · Knowledge Work & Knowledge Management  with:

Instructional Strategies for Knowledge Development that lists learning strategies for four Nonaka&Takeuchi modes of knowledge creation (by Don Clark, who was one of my first discoveries of HRD resources on-line).

How do you say a person is doing a knowledge work... ???

One question that has been troubling me is how to operationalize knoweldge work... i.e.

a) How do you measure the performance of knowledge workers..?

b) Other than output from knowldge workers --- the output which may come out after years e.g. a scientist may or may not dicover anything.. but is defintitely using brains and doing knowledge work. How would you be sure that the scientist is working or doing knowledge work and not pretending .. doing such work.. day dreaming?

Please give your opinion or view points or suggest some research studies?

I would also be very thankful to you if you can send some research articles related to any aspects of knowledge workers.

This is one of the questions I have to tackle in my PhD research. So far answers in the thread are not very useful, but I hope to see more.
