Just Seven Things

Exploring why and how we do what we do, and how we can do it better

Personal Knowledge Management vs. Personal Filtering and Management

24hrs percolation and further research on the subject matter I posted on yesterday has led me to the following conclusions:

1. My hijacking of organisational knowledge management definitions and relabelling ‘personal’ knowledge management is incorrect. Personal knowledge management appears to be wider defined to include conversations/ relationships and the distribution/ sharing of that information

2. Personal Filtering and Management (of knowledge) is a better description of what has been most taxing me.  Devabhaktuni Srikrishna nails the whole area in a post on Monday

3. There are fathoms of exploration to be done on the impact of (and to) social media from both of these areas (personal knowledge management and Personal Filtering and Management

I think that at the heart of the ‘challenge’ or my reference to this area ‘taxing’ me is best explained when I look at Google’s mission: ‘Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful’.

That’s all fine, but now that I can access and use the world’s information I need to organise my own microcosm of information and make that accessible and useful to my ‘conscious search engine’

Or am I just a control freak?
