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)
- Contribution and further research
- Ingredients for a theory: accidental brokering, artefact-based connections and edge zones
- 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
