How not to organise information

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —October 2, 2007
Filed in Insight

I’ve recently been telling everyone about a presentation I saw on You Tube by David Weinberger called Everything is Miscellaneous. David’s argument is that in the past we organised our information into neat categories and then we had one category called miscellaneous to cope with those things that didn’t fit. Now with the explosion of […]

I’ve been keeping my eyes open for something entertaining to read on a long plane journey. I’m a fast reader and easily bored so the usual fare at airports barely lasts until I am flying over the West Australian coast. That leaves about another 20 hours of flying time to fill. So wandering past the […]

What do we mean by tacit knowledge?

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —August 14, 2007
Filed in Insight

Most of our work here at Anecdote involves working with tacit knowledge. But it is clear that there is a broad understanding about what’s meant by the phrase. In the knowledge management world there are two camps: one that believes tacit knowledge can be captured, translated, converted; and the other that highlights its ineffable characteristics. […]

Well, Daryl’s arrival on the scene at Anecdote has really put the pressure on me now he has published his maiden blog post. Here I’ve been for several months and nothing from me but a deafening silence. For people who have actually met me this is entirely out of character. I have opinions on everything […]

When you’re steeped in a discipline like knowledge management you start to assume that everyone knows about techniques like After Action Reviews and Peer Assists. Of course this is untrue. Steve Dale over at Dissident has discovered this neat Flash animation that describes the peer assist process. I particular like the idea of rotating peer […]

A new conceptualisation of expertise, advice and knowledge

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —January 16, 2007
Filed in Insight

This looks really interesting: Expertise is about more than evidence. It is also about judgement and wisdom. Our argument is not that we should reject the received wisdom in favour of the wisdom of crowds. But we need to go beyond a simple model of ‘evidence-based policy.’ Drawing on recent case studies and research with […]

Wow, is this really what a knowledge map looks like?

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —January 15, 2007
Filed in Insight

Here’s a good idea. A neat compilation of a range of visualisation techniques arranged in the form of a periodic table. I was checking out all the different examples by rolling my mouse over each ‘element’ and then notice this one titled ‘knowledge map’. Hmmm, of all the knowledge maps I’ve helped organisations create, they’ve […]

4 ways to use your time more effectively

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —November 18, 2006

Wherever I go I hear the same thing, “I’d love to do it, but we just don’t have enough time.” ‘It’ is anything they know is important, and could make a difference, but they are totally overwhelmed with their current tasks. The thought of something else is just too much.

The role of past patterns in discontinuous change

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —September 29, 2006
Filed in Insight

Dave Snowden has written an excellent post warning of the dangers of simply looking at the past and attempting to apply, without adaptation, what happened then to what is happening now. After reading Dave’s post jumped on a plane to Sydney and as I was rushing out the door grabbed Charles Handy’s Age of Unreason from my friend’s […]
