Knowledge Theory Requires Experience with KM

Thanks very much for the invitation to contribute at KMCI. My ideas on using
technology for knowledge work are set out in the record...

If people have questions, if anyone wants to do KM, I can help.

Working with Doug's group meeting at SRI this past year has shown that KM is a
secret that can only be discovered by doing KM. People need this experience to
move from IT to a culture of knowledge. Until people are doing KM, all of the
seminars, meetings and white papers are not effective because they are
disconnected from daily work experience.

Thanks very much for favorable comments on SDS. Speaking of Jack Park, he
commented favorably on SDS, as well....

So, it seems safe to say that SDS is one way to gain experience with KM. The
larger challenge is how to grow a culture of knowledge that sustains it. That
might be taken up by your group.

Hey, you're up awfully late....

Thanks again, for answers on Mindset.
