  Papers of WWW2004 workshop on the weblogging ecosystem

This is where I want to be on 18 May: WWW2004 Workshop on the Weblogging Ecosystem: Aggregation, Analysis and Dynamics.

And the papers are:

The research on weblogs is accelerating: I'm not able to read all the papers anymore. I guess in a few months I even will not be able to keep track of all new publications. Don't know should I be happy or sad :)

If you want to keep up with my hunting for weblog research items, make sure you check these:

  Personal knowledge management in KM Magazine

Just to let you know - April issue of KM Magazine features personal knowledge management. While most articles are subscribers only, this one you can check for free - Your say: Personal knowledge management by Sandra Higgison with contributions of Mick Cope, Tom Davenport, Jim McGee, David Skyrme and me (delighted to be in such a great company :)

While it may be not much new in this article for KM bloggers it is a good sign that personal KM is getting mainstream. And of course I'm very proud :)))

And an extra: full text of my answer to Sandra about personal KM challenges

To a great extend PKM is about shifting responsibility for learning and knowledge sharing from a company to individuals and this is the greatest challenge for both sides. Companies should recognise that their employees are not "human resources", but investors who bring their expertise into a company. As any investors they want to participate in decision-making and can easily withdraw if their "return on investment" is not compelling. Creativity, learning or desire to help others cannot be controlled, so knowledge workers need to be intrinsically motivated to deliver quality results. In this case "command and control" management methods are not likely to work.

Taking responsibility for own work and learning is a challenge for knowledge workers as well. Taking these responsibilities requires attitude shift and initiative, as well as developing personal KM knowledge and skills. In a sense personal KM is very entrepreneurial, there are more rewards and more risks in taking responsibility for developing own expertise.
