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

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
