Ernie the Attorney Blogging toward "Knowledge Management." -- Dave Winer mentioned this blog in Scripting News and it's a thought-provoking piece, particularly in the context of how much attention (and $$) I see devoted to the subject at my employer. DW also mentioned another related idea earlier in SN -- "BTW, another reason I blog is patents." The fact that patents must take into account any previous art prevents someone being allowed to take full credit for ideas that appear elsewhere in the "weblog knowledge cloud."
I got my invitation to Google Wave on Friday and finally had a few minutes to check it out last night and today. Started my first wave on "cloud computing." Seems fitting to discuss the topic in a new, cloud-based collaboration platform. Of course, I continue to have dialogs on cloud computing in other media, but couldn't resist trying out Google Wave with such a fitting topic.
Right now I've only got about 5 colleagues in Google Wave along with me, but that'll grow over the next few days. I'll post more observations as my community grows and I have more reasons to work in the environment.
Meanwhile, I'm in it and learning my way around. Stay tuned!
