Personal KM

Martin Roell has an interesting perspective: Knowledge Management does not exist. Personal Knowledge Management does

You can't manage knowledge. If you are an organisation.
You can manage knowledge. If you are an individual.

"Knowledge" is something personal and only something personal. Once you make it explicit, it's no longer knowledge: It's information. We can manage information well, we can build fancy databases and label them "Knowledge Management Systems" but they remain Information Management Systems. And information by itself is completely meaningless.

And it is completely not important as it is systematized

"You can't manage knowledge. If you are an organisation."

But Virginia Woolf described the Reading Room at the British Museum as an enormous brain.

Actually Andrew, Virginia Woolf is an artist and can describe the British Museum as a giant baboon's anus if she wants to.
