My post in about KM theory and Practice

My personal opinion is that the theory and practice of KM are both together in an 'emergent dance' (if I can call it that!) to evolve into something meaningful and value adding for organizations, individuals and society at large.

Because KM spans expertise across so many different disciplines, there is going to be churning and chaotic conflicts on "what is KM?" (we have already seen that happening over the last few years) and the more fundamental questions "what is knowledge?" and "can we really manage knowledge?"

I am an optimist and willing to watch with fascination as it develops into something that is larger than it is now!
