KM 1.0 and KM 2.0 defined

Library Clips has a thought provoking post here on the difference between KM 1.0 and KM 2.0 which is well worth reading.

In the post KM 1.0 is defined as "developing specific knowledge sharing tools that are used to capture and share knowledge in the form of structured content"

Wheras KM 2.0 is described as "a way to do your work, and by default share knowledge at the same time, without it having to be an explicit task".

The end of email?

A couple of interesting posts here on what is perceived as the "end of email" I have to admit to being guilty of sometimes emailing people when I could quite easily walk down the corridor to ask them something or phone them.

On the other hand I do use RSS extensively and am a huge fan. If I was to think of any one tool that had changed my working practice significantly it would have to be RSS.
