Knowledge and wisdom are my passion and my work

Today I have created my third Knol article on Google entitled ' Knowledge and wisdom are my passion and my work'.

Throughout my life, I have always been extremely passionate about knowledge and wisdom

At one end of the spectrum, I am extremely passionate about knowledge management for individuals, teams, organizations and global communities and networks. It became my profession, as a knowledge management consultant, since 1995.

At the other extreme, I am passionate about what you might call 'higher knowledge', philosophy, especially moral and spiritual philosophy and/or ethics. I am passionate about both the ancient wisdom, especially eastern philosophy and modern scientific knowledge, whether it be about quantum theory, neuroscience, nanotechnology or even molecular biology and molecular computing.

If you are interested in my thoughts and my work with knowledge and wisdom, whether it is about practical daily issues and challenges of knowledge management, or whether it is about my perspective and experiences about the meaning and purpose of life, or both, you can find my books, articles and blogs listed.

As always, I would highly value your comments, feedback and any reviews, so that I may continually improve this Knol.

    Your passion for knowledge and wisdom resonates with me.

    Works of people like Fritjof Capra and Alvin toffler (and also matrix trilogy.)

    While working for a consultancy in India, I saw enormous potential in changing/improving the world through KM. Now, I am KM practitioner myself based in Singapore!

  2. Thanks Ankit for the positive comment.And especially thanks for reminding me about the work of Fritjof Capra. I simply love his work and thoughts on interconnectivity.

    I will also take a look again at Toffler and the matrix trilogy too.

    I expect to be working in Singapore in early January 2009 for a week, so if you are around then maybe we could have a chat over a coffee?


  3. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
