Knowing Knowledge Review by Clive Shepherd

I love this post by Clive Shepherd. I've only recently been connected with Clive, but truly enjoy his blog. You should also check out his answers to December's Big question. I love his answers to all 3 questions.

But back to his post that got me here...his review of Gsiemens's book Knowing Knowledge. He states some brilliant points. This is one of those nights with little time to add my own. I just thought it important enough to direct everyone there to check it out.

There is a connection for me between GTD (the Getting Things Done movement), Professionalism (David Maister's outstanding podcast series) and Learning. I hear an overwhelming amount of whining about information overload when discussing RSS as the new learning pipeline. It harkens back to the day when email first landed and "oh my, what are we going to do with all these emails!"

I think if you connect the technology of Web2.0 (especially mobile tech) with the practical approach to work via GTD, and the theoretical value based, Me Inc., Professionalism of David Maister, you start to see the picture of the knowledge worker of the future. I'm working up a graphic for this, but its been coming together for me for a few months now.
