Re: Xobni #tools

Speaking from my few day's of experience with Xobni, it loads reasonable for me. One thing I did is to make Outlook runs on Cached Exchange Mode so that Xobni don't spend a lot of time wait for Exchange Server when it collect data from inbox.
 
I notice Xobni hits and misses on e-mail attachments that it discovers. Also its search is a little primitive in that it displays results sorted by date in stead of relevancy ranking and it does not support common full-text search features such as word stemming (searching "document aging" does not return e-mail with "document age").
 
Other than that, it is a great tool for taming e-mail overload.

New member looking for new opportunities #jobs

vs_shenoy <vs_shenoy@...>
 

Hello,

New to the group, and I should say after reading so many emails and
listening to the recordings, I liken discovering SIKM to Hernan Cortes
discovering the Aztecs!! (sorry for the drama)

I am currently looking at new opportunities in KM, though I have had
very limited success. I am interested in Content Architecture,
Collaboration, and Content Sharing, and in particular discovering
Content and Knowledge Sharing models using business process modeling.
I have taken on primarily technical roles while working on Content
Management solutions using ASP.NET to Documentum for implementations
(in Higher Education and Pharmaceuticals). But now I am also looking
to learn and apply more social tools and process improvements (the
softer side) into technical solutions in my future pursuits.

I would be glad to hear from others in the group about opportunities
there may be in KM, or to even discuss ideas in work they are
currently doing. I'd also be happy with any advice you might have
about skills and approach for my search.

Thanks to Stan for pointing me to some opportunities already!!

I look forward to hearing from you all :)

Thanks,
Vinod


Re: Wiki #wikis

Pete,



All good questions. Too many KM initiatives are launched without the end
benefits in mind.

In my case I have specific aims for the wikis the students build. In the
case of SIKM, we should defer to Michael (Fulton) who asked the initial
query why he thought it might be something worth pursuing. Benefits may be
as simple as providing a "safe" environment for SIKM members (those who have
no hands on experience with wikis can play to understand how they may apply
the tool for other purposes).



Another potential benefit is that we build a knowledgebase together so each
of us can browse and gain insights for our collective knowledge and
experiences (but is this already available through the many websites/on-line
resources on KM?). But then if we want to do this, why not on something
more open like Wikipedia..



As Dave stated, this may be better done in a more public forum and share the
maintenance load a little. I am happy to contribute regardless of purpose
as I believe there is value to students in a comprehensive site being
available for their reference.

Well one think we need to ask ourselves is what do we need this for.
Otherwise it is just going to be another example of how not to implement a
piece of technology. Is there a problem that needs solving? Opportunity to
replace some of the rest of the stuff? Will the SIKM members be better off
with wiki (and how)? What is the goal of this? If we can provide answers
to this, i am sure the technological implementation is a piece of cake.

Of course there is another solution - contribute to the Wikipedia pages on Knowledge Management, Community of Practice etc.  At the moment only a very small number of us look after those pages and I seem to spend most of my time removing commercial promotion and vandalism.

That way the contribution would be to the wider community, of course it would then be subject to scrutiny by a wider group of editors and might be less comfortable in consequence.

Re: Document aging related to Expertise #expertise-location

Michael,

I've been thinking about this one, and the more I think about it I
keep coming back to what Relevance you want for your search. And some
interesting questions related to that:
1. Would expertise (read document) related to a patent show come up
higher if the patent was close to expiry?
2. Would the document's content/context always rank higher compared to
age?

Those are the ones I could think of without convoluting what you are
trying to do. There are mathematical models that revolve around tf-idf
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tf-idf). I had only read about this
stuff since first working in book indexing years ago, but I haven't
done any mathematical modeling to come up with how to add relevance
weights myself. I was in a group that decided relevance, but wasn't
the subject matter really well. A domain map/taxonomy might help as
well. Very interesting stuff :).

I tried to approach it from a traditional point of contact (SME) for
your problem, but I'm sure you've already gotten that part figured
out. I'd be glad to discuss with you further if you liked. Let me know.

Thanks,
Vinod

Obviously, the impact of aging is different per expertise source as

Do we have a SIKM wiki? If not, is that something the APCQ group would host for us if we were willing to use it and we entered that partnership?

I'd be willing to start the wiki conversation if someone can point me to a preferred location.

Michael -

I am not aware of research on the subject (not the same as
saying that
it doesn't exist), but as a KMer in an S&T
organization, I've given it
some thought. For what it's worth...

There is the well-defined aspect of life-cycle management
within the
field of records management. Although knowledge
doesn't expire as
records do, I feel that there are a number of useful
principles that
might be applied to S&T content.

In science, even outdated published material are archived
forever as
part of the scientific historical record. I can't
begin to count the
number of times that I've read (and written) about the
first mention of
a subject by someone who wrote about it 50 or 100 years
before we
recognized it as a discipline. Even here, however, there
are criteria
for deciding whether or not to permanently archive a
record; again, a
possible source of principles for S&T content.

In S&T, some knowledge (e.g., Newton's law of
gravity), some information
(e.g., of historical significance), and some data (e.g.,
climate) never
expire whereas other content, relating to obsolete
technology, outdated
reports, or yesterday's weather become obsolete over
time.

Thus, S&T content has parallel challenges to those that
have been
resolved for records. Do we preserve something forever or
for less than
forever; and if less than forever, how long? The task
would be to
develop criteria & indicators to evaluate various forms
of content in
terms of their relative permanence. I can think of no one
better
trained in this sort of thing than librarians with
subject-matter
backgrounds.

Having possibly provided the 1% inspiration, all that
remains is the 99%
perspiration to develop the criteria and indicators. I
dunno - if there
is enough interest in the subject and there isn't an
adequate
literature, perhaps other SIKM members might have an
interest (as I do)
in setting up a wiki somewhere and having a go at seeing
what we can
construct together.

Re: Document aging related to Expertise #expertise-location

Aronovitz <Aronovitz@...>
 

I'm not sure if this applies directly to the question but here goes anyway.
- Whenever we added content we asked the submitter to estimate a date by which the material may be out of date
- On a monthly basis we communicated to those submitters that had provided content that was approaching the out of date date asking them to determine if it's still OK or needs to be updated or deleted
 
Most people followed this process well with the result being that we rarely had an issue with out of date content


Re: Document aging related to Expertise #expertise-location

Valdis Krebs <valdis@...>
 

Michael,

How often do people use that document? And who uses the document? How? A document is influential/valid to the extent that people use it in their work and to create new documents from it. Is it often re- used, a conduit to new documents? Don't judge a document in isolation, judge its value from how it is used!

Done several projects like this on the ACTUAL use of documents/data bases/resources/web sites/etc. -- can do this analysis by process/ department/team/topic/etc.
