Our slides are at http://sharedcon.notlong.com. Please, ping this post if you are writing about :)

For those who are interested: Anjo is planning to release the tool (called Sigmund :), but it will take some time. It will be announced in our weblogs...

  BlogTalk 2.0: Panel 6 - weblogs and KM

Martin Röll: Distributed KM - Improving Knowledge Workers' Productivity and Organisational Knowledge Sharing with Weblog-based Personal Publishing (slides and more)

  • knowledge workers are those who do interesting conversations at work
  • more irrelevant stuff - pageRank?

Lee Bryant: Informal, joined up knowledge sharing using connected weblogs in pursuit of Mental Health service improvement

  • what doesn't work in knowledge sharing (you know that, so I'm not typing :)
  • Social Software
    • social in the way it is connceived: does what we want
    • social in its purpose: connecting
    • social in the way it behaves: adapts to us
  • Lessons from Social Software
      • informality
      • aggregation
      • bottom-up emergent metadata
      • 'loosely joint' mark-up and linking culture
      • simple conceptual models
  • There is a lot of interesting stuff, but it should be online, so I'll link to it
  • Social engagement approach
  • Use a project weblog to learn their issues and language and to help teach them ours
  • start where they are comfortable
  • code: if it doesn't work with trough it away - who cares about a code...
  • one by one, group by group, there is no mass approach
  • http://www.nimhenorthwest.org.uk/
  • http://kc.nimhe.org.uk/
  • heavily invest into understanding users
  • anatomy of a group
  • wiki is prepopulated (re: blank page problem)
  • ultifaceted - multi-perspective metadata
  • total aggregation, composed feed and take it out of the system
  • online social networking works best for a specific purpose
  • take content as feeds

[to be finished]

  BlogTalk 2.0: Panel 5

Jane Perrone: Blog to work? Blogging and journalism

  • Quote from Simon Waldman: "My overall feeling is that any journalist doing this is probably learning more about how the web works than any amount of professional training could provide..."
  • Much about drawing the line between blogging for work and blogging for passion
  • Thinking how blogging fits as an integral part of covering any major new story
  • More transparency: giving an insights about journalists' work
  • How to expain blogging as part of the news for people who have no idea about blogging?

Horst Prillinger: 'Are You Serious?' - the potential and the reality of weblogs as mass media, and why they matter

  • journalism:
    • first-hand research
    • multiple sources
    • different perspective
    • verification of sources
    • editorial process
    • facts vs. opinion
  • Weblogs
    • second-hand data
    • one source (+ snowballing)
    • one perspective
    • no verification
    • instant publishing
    • mix of fact and opinion
  • mosaic of weblogs

Peter Praschl: After midnight. Weblogs and jam sessions

  • History of jam sessions in jazz... As a way to escape rules, to experiment and to release passion.
  • Jam:
    • you need commont ground to start improvisation
    • belonging to a band
    • finding new songs

Thinking of jazz metaphor and day job discussion

  BlogTalk 2.0: Mena and Ben Trott

Mena and Ben Trott: Blogs, Bandwidth, and Banjos: Tightly Knit Bonds in Weblogging

  • "Weblogging revolution": when weblogs become invisible, embedded in what you do
  • TypePad
    • 33% of TypePad weblogs are private (not indexed, not pinging, etc.)
    • 10% are password-protected
    • -> only exist for those who are intended to see them
  • Why do you out them online then?
  • Behaviour influences tools

The bottom line: I'm not impressed. Mena and Ben wasn't here yesterday, were 15 minute late for their keynote presentation and didn't really tell anything new (apart from the banjo story that was entertaining, but more appropriate in another context). May be there are some serious reasons behind it, but it looks like the attitude.

For me it's quite connected with yesterday's discussion about developers not listening to their users :)

Update: Mena has posted on the talk, so you can judge for yourself. It's a pity that Mena and Ben didn't have time to communicate - their experience could add to the conversation... Anyway, online is always there...
