So, for the first time in FOREVER I didn't do any work this week...well, if you don't count shopping for my T-Day menu ingredients (I'm preparing a Cajun themed meal in case anyone is interested) and braving the crowds at the DeKalb Farmers Market and my Atlanta Publix (where some manager I've not met before almost declined to accept my personal check because it has my PO Box address and my DL has my physical address and, he says, because the check number was less than 100 (I'm using up all of my old WaMU checks)- even though I've written roughly two checks a month at that very location and my Charleston Publix since April, and for that matter at any number of Publix's across GA since 2003...do better people, I am well known for how thoroughly I pimp the Publix brand across the country! Do you need a Knowledge Manager to help you implement and practice your policies uniformly?)
Anywho, here's my OOTB grab bag for the week.
- Could the crappy economy be the right time for your company to engage in 'Disruptive Innovation'. Don't have a clue what the hell 'Disruptive Innovation is? Read here!
- "Er, um...okay" of The Week: Common is Dating Hip Hop, Not Serena Williams…does Serena know that ?
- Fast Company is starting to remind me of the magazine I used to bill as my business 'bible'. This interview with John Havens on "Building Trust with Transparency" is just one reason.
- Cool Tech of the Week: Uniqlo's new HEATTECH clothing line. It may not do squat for your KM initiative, but it's still really cool tech.
- Political Hot Potato of the Week: Criminalization of HIV transmission and exposure. How about a community development KM strategy to redress social ignorance?
- Cool Tool of the Week: Thanks to CNet for introducing me to collaborative editing tool TextFlow. I'm still testing it out but it seems like a pretty cool to me.
