| About Knowledge Management|
After reading my yesterday's post, a
reader points out that the use of blogs for knowledge distribution is not new.
Apparently there's industry doing this stuff, and they call it KLogs.
For me, the term knowledge management has an infinitely bigger meaning. I think all
these bloggers who talk about knowledge are not computer scientists and do not
know the difference between a database and a knowledge-base. The
knowledge-base is a derivative of the artificial intelligence field and involves
storing of knowledge and decision making logic rather that human blabbering. A
knowledge-base has an inference engine built-into it. A knowledge-base is
smart and can be taught to learn as it goes.
Anyway, that is not to take the limelight away from the KLog industry. I think Klogs are
a very cost-effective way to share human knowledge, both in a social as well as
in a business context.
What do the Klogs provide that discussion forums don't? I am not so sure.
What do the Klogs provide that blogs don't? Again, I am not so sure, I am new to
But among our Blog Server, The Remocon
Server and our Kamat Content Manager, I
think we have enough tools to become a player in the KLog industry. Perhaps there's an opportunity here....?
