It sounds like Steve Barth is going to have an interesting time of it over the next few months. Even better, he will have the opportunity to blog some of it! Reflexions: New Research Project: KM and Forest Metaphors
This project is a rare opportunity to play with several extremely disparate threads of inquiry which, despite their seeming lack of relationships to each other, have nevertheless been reasonating in my head the last few years. They range from the importance of ambiguity in sense-making, the complex dynamics of Hawaiian rainforests, the quest for insight through conversation and reflection, and of course the sad record of KM applications to really help with knowledge work.
