[Dave Pollard]: ‘Using Knowledge Management to Drive Innovation’ vs ‘The Autism of Knowledge Management’
The truth, as is usually the case, is likely somewhere between the APQC’s ebullient optimism and Lambe’s relentless pessimism.

Dave Pollard‘s written and modelled some very interesting stuff on business blogs and k-logs

John Robb is back, and up to something interesting scheme to bring remuneration to the world of weblogs:
MindPlex: The Weblog Network.  I should have a project/business plan (although for all intents and purposes this will be operated to maximize revenue for the authors) for this by the end of the week.  This will let me prioritize the steps necessary to bring this project to fruition.  I am working already on some of the nuts/bolts, and asking questions along the way (and getting great answers too by the way — thanks).  BTW, anybody have feedback on the conceptual design I hacked together for the front door to the Network?

Andrew Grumet: Deep Thinking about Weblogs. [Scripting News]

[Business 2.0]: Many employees might feel that such a system is akin to management eavesdropping on water-cooler discussions. The internal weblogs I’ve seen work are those that track an idea’s progress from offhand notion to fully matured proposal. I have seen three such blogs, always-on virtual whiteboards that have sped development and kept the status of projects clearer than they’d been before. They don’t attempt to capture an organization’s mood.
Such systems are not for every company, and they’re far from widespread. And such success depends entirely on an individual firm’s culture. If the company personality is too buttoned-up or secretive, a blog initiative will either fail to take off (there’s nothing lonelier than a blog that doesn’t get updated) or deteriorate into something unhealthy. The internal blogs that succeed will be safe, clean, well-lit virtual places in which diverse opinions are welcome and ideas — not people — are judged. Companies should always explore new ways of getting messages out and new tactics for fostering idea-exchange among the staff, but right now the blogging action is almost exclusively for external readers.
