Combining business and practice: KM and the law
As one of the most knowledge-intensive “industries” around, the legal profession is perfectly suited for knowledge management. A global study by Curve Consulting (, which was referred to in our October 2006 issue (page 1), finds that while firms are quick to acknowledge KM’s value to the practice of law, most have yet to embrace it on the business side.

Blogs and wikis: ready for prime time?
Blogs began springing up more than a decade ago as a way for individuals to maintain online diaries, voice their opinions on politics and vent about consumer products. They proliferated rapidly, and thousands became millions. Tainted perhaps by the image of bloggers as gossipmongers, blogs were not taken seriously as enterprise applications until fairly recently.

The Readers speak-10th Anniversary KMWorld Readers’ Choice Awards
About 11 years ago, a group of us were starting to ask ourselves whether all this “information management stuff” might have a greater purpose than merely to store information in a file server somewhere. That maybe—just maybe—information could be applied to the type of work and to the level of decision-making taking place in business at such a famously accelerated pace. And in providing that information to the right person at the right time, the promise of a truly knowledge-based economy could be realized. In the 10 years since ImagingWorld became KMWorld magazine, we’ve tried to address the discipline (practice? theory? religion?) of knowledge management from each of its well-known constituent components—people, process, technology.
