2011 – Ruminations on this blog

I”m interested in Knowledge Management as someway of organizing my thoughts around how work gets done, how people cooperate and conflict, how information get’s organized and how technology get’s used for these purposes. I did a MSc in KM from HK Polytechnic in 2008/2009. This was quite useful for someone like me who had worked for 30 years on the fringes of KM. This is the beginning of the 3rd year for this blog. It’s useful for me to make some connections between all the above. The process of searching for events for the events page makes me keep up to date and sometimes I even attend these events. In 2011 I’m going to restrict the events to those in Hong Kong, Macau or Guangdong province (I’m going to call this greater Guangdong) unless there is a strong connection to these local KM communities.

Our KM community is very fragmented. There are formal academic KM programs at a few of the universities, take a look at the ones I know about here. There are many KM related groups, societies, organizations and forums in greater Guangdong, see here. This diversity is good. I’m trying to offer a place here that pulls the information about these groups and their activities together. Knowledge Management in greater Guangdong would be better if we knew what was going on besides receiving lots of emails from many people. There are many events, a few organizational websites but no central website to find a cross-section of all of them. I’m trying to give us such a place. Keep me posted on any KM type of events in 2011 and I’ll post them here.
