Commented on “Above and Beyond KM”

Thanks for the response, Wendy. I have one phrase and one word myself. Semantic web and tagging. Your point about everyone being responsible means no one is responsible is well taken. I’m not suggesting there’s no need for Librarians (just as I don’t argue for wholesale replacement of taxonomies with folksonomies), but I think much of the maintenance in the future will be well behind the scenes.

BTW – To my knowledge there is no one (irrespective of one’s religious beliefs) architecting and maintaining life on our planet, yet as a system it seems to have worked fairly well for the last couple billion years.

About Rick Ladd

Born in 1947, I am an officially retired pensioner who still has two teenage daughters and a desire to contribute. I remain intensely interested in, and fascinated by, Systems Thinking, Machine Learning, Knowledge Management, Decision Intelligence, and Business in general. I am also conversant in such concepts as innovation and ideation, collaborative tools and strategies, crowdsourcing, and the use of social media to accomplish goals ranging from improving business processes to promoting small retail businesses. Since my "retirement" I have done a little bit of freelancing as an editor/proofreader, as well as some technical writing. I've also done a fair amount of Facebook marketing as well. There's lots more where that came from. Need some help? Perhaps another set of eyes? Contact me. The first one's free! ;0) View all posts by Rick Ladd

Go ahead! Give me a tongue lashing.
