PhD on Personal KM

Lilia Efimova, aka Mathemagenic, is doing PhD research on weblogs and the connection to personal knowledge management, and she is having fun trying to come up with a title that describes what she is trying to do: Personal knowledge productivity or Personal effectiveness in a knowledge intensive environment. The latter sounds more "formally academic."

My interest in this has focused on the "personal knowledge management" tools - how do I combine my wonderful (but sloppy) brain with the new tools out there that help me organize and find things again? Lilia appears to be going in another direction -- that of figuring out how to be both personally effective (with one's knowledge) AND able to communicate that with others. I await her next couple of years worth of reports from the field.
