More knowledge sharing with Open Source

Standardizing the display of knowledge assets is not equal to and should not be confused with standardizing workflow.

Mashup Ubiquity

That of course does not diminish the impact that mashups will have on KM and collaboration in general. Mashups and Web 2.0 are all about bringing often disparate pieces of information together in a useful manner.

Clearly, Organizational Change must come into play whenever a large-scale implemen

?and in the end Knowledge Management will be changed by open-source too. That's the truth of the matter, and for those of you who read the rest I will explain why. Sure it's a compelling "headline", its sexy, it uses "open-source", but is it true? Absolutely, and the tools available in the OS community that are for, or can be repurposed for, KM are getting better every single day. Certainly more than a few people are familiar with the Lucene project, it's a great open- source search engine,
