KM, Communities and the “Little Free Library”

Chris Collison

I came across this post via the Knowledge Flow (thank you Susan Frost!), and was struck by the idea, and its parallels in the world of networks and communities of practice. That sounds like a pretty effective knowledge management tool to me.

Scaffolding for sharing knowledge
