Social Media versus Knowledge Management - Anthony J. Bradley and Mark P. McDonald - Harvard Business Review | Beyond KM | Scoop.it
On the surface, social media and knowledge management (KM) seem very similar. Both involve people using technology to access information. Both require individuals to create information intended for sharing. Both profess to support collaboration.

But there's a big difference."

DataAppeal lets you create your own location-based infographics

DataAppeal lets you create your own location-based infographics | Beyond KM | Scoop.it
It’s often said that we’re in the midst of the information age, which may help explain why there’s been a surge in infographics in recent years – they make data just that little bit more…palatable. But if you’re more of a spreadsheets kind of person than an artist, this application could be what you’re looking for.

DataAppeal is a Web-based, data-design visualization application that allows users to transform their location-based data into infographics through the creation of 3D and animated maps.

3 Geeks and a Law Blog: The Over-Extension of Knowledge Management

3 Geeks and a Law Blog: The Over-Extension of Knowledge Management | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"I'm paraphrasing this a bit, but basically there are two reasons to have KM projects:
There is a need within the firm that keeps Partners up at night and KM can solve this issue.There is a need within the firm that KM can solve, even though the issue may not be one that Partners are asking to be fixed. (AKA - Sticking Your Neck Out Projects)

If the project/process/procedures don't fit one of these two reasons, then KM shouldn't be supporting them."

Diversity, community and knowledge management

Diversity, community and knowledge management | Beyond KM | Scoop.it
We all know diversity is a good thing right? Yet in practice I’m sure we often find it easier to work with people who are more like us – who share similar customs and beliefs, come from the same educational or professional background, or agree with us on the “big issues”. So if we value diversity – but secretly prefer to stay in our comfort zone – does it matter, and if so what should we do? And what if anything does this have to do with knowledge management?

"Maybe a naive vision, but why don't we give it a try: let us apply the principles and tools of Web 2.0 to rediscover appreciation, to foster a more natural approach of competition and collaboration that will bring us back into balance. Let us create appreciative networks! Networks that are based on the fundamentals that we make a compliment to the people we have learned from."
