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

Since my retirement from Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne in 2010, I have spent quite a bit of energy on developing work as a social media marketer for small business, a business manager for an AI software development firm, and as an editor/proofreader for a number of business books and a couple of novels, as well as a two-year return engagement at Rocketdyne from 2015 to 2017. I have decided to stop actively pursuing business in these fields and am now positioning myself to be a writer. I have done quite a bit of writing over the years, but I’ve never really attempted to make any money at it; at least not specifically. I’m starting out with a couple of memoirs and, currently, I’m studying the craft, creating a detailed outline and timeline, and honing my skills as a storyteller. Pretty sure I’ll be writing some fiction as well. View all posts by Rick Ladd
