Why on earth would you want to be on Twitter?


Given the cutting-edge experience of my personal learning network (yes, you, who follow this blog and whom I’m following on various social media generally) this question seems strange, but there are many Twitter skeptics out there. It’s great! Long live the skeptics! Long live their ability to raise important questions… that is, so long as […]

Top KM influencer on Twitter? Why and what then?


This week I had the very pleasant and slightly shocking surprise of landing as #23 on MindTouch’s top 100 Influencers on KM – see more information about this here (or click on the icon on the right hand side).

Twitter survey results: who tweets most (about work)?


The best evidence you can get is the one you go get yourself. Well, in theory anyway… But it certainly helps to get to first hand data.

(Im)Proving the value of knowledge work: A KMers chat on monitoring / assessing knowledge management


On 16 February 2010, I will be hosting a KMers chat about the topic of ‘monitoring / assessing knowledge management’ (1).

Summer tweets in the feverish heat
