Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die


When was the last time that you had a bl**dy good conversation in Twitter? Yes, you know, a conversation of more than, say, 3 to 5 tweets on a single thread with one or more participants? I want the conversations back in Twitter. I miss the conversation.

Blog>> Re-branding KM

Green Chameleon

KM per se is not a sexy term - when speaking to others, particularly those I’m keen on building relationships with, flaunting the term ‘KM’ does not often jump-start inspiring and enthralling conversations - more the opposite! I believe that in repositioning what KM brings to an organisation under a new mantra or title can kick-start much more exciting and relevant conversations. My term for rebranding KM concepts?
