Thierry Hubert and I will speak at the December 17 meeting of Boston’s KM Forum. We will discuss:Deliver Us from Web 2.0 Content Chaos: Activity, Attraction and Personal Knowledge Create the Awareness Engine™. Here is the session description.
The presentation will share with the audience a practical application of chaos theory for creating knowledge focal points from the chaotic mess of content resources distributed across the Web. Using a couple of examples, one from the Internet where socially generated content is exploding, and one from the enterprise where social tools are also contributing their own content bloat, We will discuss the ideas that are driving a new product idea at Darwin Ecosystem. The examples will illustrate how activity can make information more discoverable, and easier to explore through various visualization techniques. These techniques open the door for more self-discovery through intuitive recognition of patterns. They will help the explorer to find relationships among content objects and people that would not have been found using traditional search methods.
We hope to see you there. It will be from 4 to 6 PM at the Microsoft offices, 201 Jones Road, Waltham, MA. Here is the announcement post on the KM Forum blog with directions. Here is more about Darwin Ecosystem and how it works.
