The Impact of Web 2.0 on Knowledge Work and Knowledge Management by Dave Snowden and Jon Husband – Part II

Continued from The Impact of Web 2.0 on Knowledge Work and Knowledge Management by Dave Snowden and Jon Husband – Part I

From there onwards it gets even much more interesting on the interview, because Dave comes to share his own experiences about blogging and how blogging is impacting the way he has access to knowledge and information by having to learn to trust a bunch of the folks that he reads on a regular basis and who already filtered somewhat the information that comes through to him. Yes, indeed, the basics of syndicating the content of those folks you learn to trust from their regular contributions as blog comments and connections they make in the various social networks. It is all about voluntarily (How important that concept is!) making connections, therefore no censorship, no control, no structure. The whole thing is self-organising as mentioned above in a previous blog post.

Right after that, Jon comes to ask the question on where all that leaves the enterprise, existing organisational structure and where Enterprise 2.0 may well fit. And while I was listening in I just couldn’t help smiling towards Dave’s words: over the last decade the most neglected word in Knowledge Management has been … context. And from there onwards he makes the connection on how Web 2.0 "makes the context in which you receive and filter information and knowledge more critical, partly because you can control that context by exchanging with people you already know or trust".
