Article Validates Weblogs as Knowledge Management Tools
Dave Aiello wrote, "Last week, I had lunch with Michael Kolbrener of Automatic Media to discuss the state of development of the Slashcode Open Source Project and the uses that our companies have made of the product up to now. In the course of that meeting, I was struck by the fact that we agreed that the potential of Slashcode extends well beyond the traditional uses of Weblogs on the public Internet."
"For a long time, I have felt that Slash-based sites would be quite useful as Knowledge Management tools inside medium and large companies. So far, CTDATA has participated in the deployment of one such system within a large New York-based financial services firm. That implementation was very successful. In fact, far more successful than I would have imagined when we began the project."
"Earlier today, Scripting News pointed to an article on elearningpost called Grassroots KM through blogging. This article provides a well-researched argument for implementing a Knowledge Management system within a large corporation as a Weblog. It validated our implementation process by explaining its success in ways I hadn't considered...."
Dave Aiello continued:
This article should be required reading for Slashcode developers who are thinking outside the box, and for people trying to build Knowledge Management systems that will help employees improve their understanding of the task at hand.
