KM and the Wikinomics of Mass Collaboration
Later this week, I shall be blogging my review of KM Asia that I visited in Singapore last week.
But before that I simply had to share a fantastic book.
At the conference I met an old friend and colleague, David Gurteen of Gurteen Knowledge. He recommended I read 'WIKINOMICS - How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything' by Don Tapscott (best selling author of The Digital Economy) and Anthony D Williams.
Sure enough, at Singapore airport, I bought the book.
I started to read it at 8am local time and I read the whole book, non-stop
on the flight in 10 hrs. It is a brilliant read, and if you haven't discovered it
already yourself, please get a copy.
I am particularly interested in Open Source Knowledge and Knowledge Commons, so the book was a great confirmation for me about these developments too.
I agree with Klaus Schwab from the World Economic Forum, it's "a deeply profound and hopeful book, Wikinomics provides compelling evidence that the emerging 'creative commons' can be a boon, not a threat to business"
Thanks David G
