Commented on “Above and Beyond KM”

Nick – There is, I believe, a term that’s very close to what you’re asking. It’s esprit d’escalier, generally defined as staircase wit – that great comeback you think of after you’ve left the party (meeting, blog, etc.) See (where else?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27esprit_de_l%27escalier.

I love this topic (thank you Mary). I think it’s an important one and would like to engage further in the discussion, but I don’t have much time this morning. Let me just say I agree with the direction Mary is taking this, but I do have some concerns about what seems to me an overly analytic (as opposed to synthetic) approach to understanding what happens when knowledge is created, shared, etc.

In all fairness, I want to read (and watch) some of your stuff as well, Nick, before wading in too deeply. BTW – Do you know Kent Greenes, Nick?

As the Governator of my “great” state of California is wont to declare, “I’ll be back”.

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
