Our friend Michael Angeles at urlgreyhot discusses his frustration with current technology, and his switch to wikis for a personal knowledge inventory:
“After spending a little time yesterday trying to add links to my weblinks directory and then filing them under my Drupal book pages, I think it’s time to start using a wiki.”
You can read more from his weblog entry discussing his switch.
Along with weblogs, we are trying to advocate the use of wikis within organizations for Knowledge Management Systems. We have found them to be a very powerful tool and can be even more powerful when combined with weblogs. However, like any other tool they are only as useful as the people who use them so if they go unused, don’t blame the technology, blame the implementation strategy.
