Blogs are now mainstream and it’s no longer necessary to explain what one is. It wasn’t that long ago that bloggers were being put down as a bunch of guys in pyjamas. Lilia Efimova, Mathemagenic, was one of my early sources of understanding about blogs, as I made my initial attempts at online conversation. Lilia introduced me to the concept of personal knowledge management. Here is my first attempt at explaining PKM in action and this is my latest.
Lilia is finishing her dissertation on the blogging practices of knowledge workers and has summarized her conclusions. All of those years of analysis are boiled down into 1,000 words and now give us an excellent summary of blogs as related to Ideas; Conversations; Relations; Tasks; and Context. Read the whole post and bookmark it; it’s a classic.
