List of 50 Knowledge Management Blogs

Joitske Hulsebosch

Following the referrals to my blog I found this list of 50 KM blogs. Hard for me, as I'm trying to keep my bloglist under 50, but I'm already at 90. If it is more than 50, I get discouraged to read them, and it starts to feel like an additional duty. And that's not what I want. So maybe I should change my bloglist to this 50?

sins of listening

Social Abacus

I've always thought I had good hearing, but lately I've noticed (or have been told), my hearing is dwindling. FYI - my theory is I'm highly sensitive to noise (aka a superhearer) and thus have a lot of interference when it comes to discerning the signal. I'm usually pretty off-the-mark. Point being: ineffective listening is a sin.

Yesterday I was obsessed with the idea of editing. Who are the new editors with democratized publication? What is their role? What are the varied ways editing manifests online, beyond the literal editing of a Wikipedia entry? Is this how we achieve quality outcomes from crowdsourcing ? If so, is the editor's need to 'get things right' self-serving?

Influencers are more than a passing interest to me…generally speaking I don’t take projects that aren’t about reaching out and connecting with influencers as part of a community strategy.
