Capturing passion

Jeff Oxenford tells an entertaining quick story about Capturing Knowledge (attempting to) from his 7-year old daughter and her fun science project.  Tears ensued, passion waned.  Redemption at the end.

This speaks volumes about capturing knowledge. Next time I think about how great it would be to capture tacit knowledge, I will remember this example. Writing things down is difficult to do and especially hard to capture the excitement. It's much easier to verbalize what you know, it's more interesting, and a much better way to exchange knowledge.

Letting people talk (or write) about the things they are excited about is a great way to communicate and share what they are doing.  This also implies that people are passionate about what they have done.
