Re: Your KM vision requested #vision

Jim - in response to the KM vision question: here is my answer, which is also published on my Linkedin page at


Unquestionably, it is social media. 

Statistics of social media's astronomical growth are staggering; it has utterly pervaded our work and consciousness. Frankly, it's no longer a trend, any more than basic telephony or email. It just is part of our world. 

KM and social media are very different, but they overlap around the notion of human connection. KM was talking about “communities” fifteen years before the word was co-opted by the Web 2.0 folks.

Today, there’s a divide between “professional KM” and “personal social media.” In the next three years, we will see more convergence, until they are nearly indistinguishable.
