Final chapter of my dissertation for a review

Finally I have a more or less readable version of the final chapter of my dissertation. I’m not extremely happy with it, so would appreciate a couple of volunteers to review it:

  • It’s 23 pages and I need comments before 1 February.
  • I think it can especially benefit from being read by KM practitioners, since I would like it to be understandable outside of the research context.

Please let me know if you are interested. To give you an idea of what is in there – the current structure of the chapter:

  • Blogging practices of knowledge workers (conclusions across studies in relation to different parts of the knowledge work framework)
    • Ideas
    • Conversations
    • Relations
    • Tasks
    • Context
    • Contribution and further research
  • Ingredients for a theory: accidental brokering, artefact-based connections and edge zones
    • Accidental brokering (blogged)
    • Artefact-based connections (blogged)
    • Blog as an edge zone (blogged)
    • Insights and questions to answer
  • Implications for practice
    • What pragmatists might want to know about blogging
    • Facilitating adoption of weblogs in knowledge-intensive environments (this section I’m especially unhappy about)
  • Looking back
    • Rethinking knowledge work
    • Blogging in research
    • Crossing boundaries
