Knowledge sharing vs Knowledge Management

Two thought provoking posts here from new Knowledge Management Blog Above and Beyond KM in the first post Knowledge Sharing vs Knowledge Management the author talks about how Knowledge Sharing is better than Knowledge Management especially if you have to "manage" knowledge on a daily basis. They also argue that the current crop of Knowledge tools, Blogs, Wikis and Social Networking applications actually encourage Knowledge Sharing rather then Knowledge Management.

In the second post Knowledge Sharing: Better Late Than Never the author provides some links to a number of articles/posts on Knowledge Sharing initiatives.

Thanks for the citation, James. My hope is that by promoting knowledge sharing over knowledge management we create a system that is self-propelling and self-sustaining. This is in contrast to the current daily uphill battles of attempting to "manage" knowledge.
