Dave Snowden

Dave Snowden has started blogging at Cognitive Edge. If you’re not familiar with Dave, he has his roots in knowledge management (IBM), and has written extensively on complex systems. He has opinions – many opinions (he manages to draw high levels of debate in online forums). I chatted with Dave on Skype last week…which I recorded (or so I thought). The tool I was using (powergramo) failed to capture the session (much to my dismay…we spent time chatting about social constructivism (not in positive terms :) ), trends in knowledge management, the changed nature of knowledge (I posited that knowledge has changed on two levels: the environment in which it exists, and the core of knowledge itself – he agreed with my first point, but wasn’t convinced about the second), and the critical role of context in knowledge exchanges). After I found out I didn’t get the recording, I went to Odeo to create a podcast of the key components of our conversation. After 20 minutes, I saved the podcast, only to have the browser hang and the podcast disappear. Oh well. Still, I’m excited to see Dave blogging…
