Managing Editor, Inside Knowledge magazine
Chief Executive, Association of Knowledgework

“Associations have always been in the knowledge business, but they have not had the tools or strategies for managing that knowledge which has been produced in the private sector…have some of the richest repositories of knowledge capital; mostly untapped.”

“We await the maturing of the KM profession…advocacy…and support for the interdisciplinary profession of knowledge work.”

“KM is so ‘different’ than what we were trained for. The knowledge economy is organic - it is a natural phenomenon driven by the human environment.”

“(As a journalist) the knowledge is that of others, not mine. We are the distributors of the knowledge of others. Our sources are the ones with the knowledge.”
