The Library Clips blog has published an interesting post on KM 2.0 in it the author describes both visually and in writing how Knowledge Management works in a Web 2.0 world.
I'm a visual person so found the drawing more appealing.

Everybody seems to be talking about collaboration at the moment and two posts from the Above and Beyond KM blog written by Mary Abraham reveal exactly what people are talking about.
In the first post Collaboration and the Golden Rule, the author discusses how adherence with the Golden Rule of collaboration "allows participants to work together and to share their insights knowing that they will have access to the best work of colleagues and will receive fair credit for their own contributions" this is one of the first steps towards showing those individuals who are not 100% certain of the benefits of collaboration how it can work.
In the second post Setting limits on Collaboration Mary points out that it is very tempting to say everything we do is collaboration (Am I collaborating with Mary now by posting this blog post?) but if we do so the term becomes meaningless, very interesting.
At our last meeting one of the discussion points was around "Building online communities" a quick search of Google shows that this is a subject that is much discussed with some useful looking resources in the results:
- Building online communities from the O'Reilly Network
- Building an online community brick by virtual brick
- Tips for building online communities
Are these useful resources?
