Twitter Chats for Knowledge Management

with 2 comments

How did a Twitter chat work?

I had a brief meeting today, about Knowledge Management.

I didn’t know where the meeting started; I didn’t know everyone who was there. I didn’t know when the meeting started – and I wasn’t invited.

How did that work then? Basically, I spotted a tweet from someone I follow that was hashtagged with #KMers. Following the link got me to the live search for the hashtag, and I was able to take part in the lively discussion – the bit that particularly interested me was the creative tension between folksonomy and taxonomy.

What’s it all about?

Chasing it up after the event, I found the excellent site, where a group of Knowledge Management professionals

aim to use a Social Media tool (Twitter Chat) and a CMS tool (Drupal) to run a site that helps KMers share information about the practice of Knowledge Management

I just lucked into it. I enjoyed the section I was involved in, and I’d recommend future events.

You can see the transcript of the [Pilot Chat] Best Ideas from KM World.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management you should take a look. Maybe I’ll see you there?

  1. @Steve, Thx for joining the inaugural #KMers chat. It was a lot of fun. If ppl don’t want to slog through the entire transcript, it has been summarized here:

    You might want to poke around my blog as I am going to poke around yours. It seems that our blogs have similar philosophies.

    Look forward to seeing you on #KMers chats. Create and vote on topic suggestions so that we are talking about what you want to talk about.
