Hi Giuseppe. First: (belated) happy new year. Next a question I put as comment on my rescoop: Isn't the proliferation of discovery tools a self-defeating proposition? If there are more curation platforms than original sources, how is that going to help?
Just a (provocative) thought ...

Hello Therese, thanks about wishes and Happy New Year to you too!
About your thought, there is surely an increase of discovery tools and curation platforms, but those are still few, really reliable and continuous development (as Scoop.it).
About the original sources, today they are an infinite universe which daily grows unabated.

ICTs in the Network Society
We are now living in a globalized world where ICTs are becoming increasingly influential. The power of communication is questioned as the existing order is challenged by a counter-power : the power of ICTs. How does the media act as an environment in this network society?

Can We Stop Talking About The Knowledge Management Nonsense Please? Knowledge Is Not Power. The Ability To Act On Knowledge Is Real Power. - innovation playground Idris Mootee

Can We Stop Talking About The Knowledge Management Nonsense Please? Knowledge Is Not Power. The Ability To Act On Knowledge Is Real Power. - innovation playground Idris Mootee | ICTs in the Network Society | Scoop.it

"The concept of knowledge management is purely an academic topic and has very little relevancy to the real world. When consultants start promoting it as if it is the central piece of strategy or oganizaion, I have a problem with it.

 

When companies are thinking to hire a Chief Knowledge Officer to do the job of managing knowledge, we should first consider Chief Culture Officer or Chief Common Sense Officer, Chief Foresight Officer, Chief Politics Bashing Officer or Chief Human factor Officer. These are more practical."

EmilieSoleil's insight:

I am curious to know what other people think about this article and the concept of "knowledge management" put into practice.

How the Creative Response of Artists and Activists Can Transform the World | The Nation

How the Creative Response of Artists and Activists Can Transform the World | The Nation | ICTs in the Network Society | Scoop.it
It's the antidote to the consumerism and cynicism that define our culture.
EmilieSoleil's insight:

Using Manuel Castells as a reference, the power of ICTs become apparent in a setting of social movements. They create a space of public discussion and debate that can be compared to Habermas' public sphere. The power of communication is evident as activists act as a counter-power challenging the existing order and institutions in place.

For those that think changes can't be made by individuals uniting for common cause this article begs to differ with that hopelessness idea.
