“I get to talk to a lot of different people each month when I speak at conferences and run my Knowledge Cafes. And I am surprised at just how many people especially knowledge managers are not using social tools (not necessarily internally but on the web for personal use) and consequently do not really understand their power as knowledge sharing and informal learning tools.
What I find particularly strange, is that people are not reading blogs or using an RSS reader or reading Twitter posts (tweets). Personally, this is how I keep up with what is going on in the world. I do most of my learning this way. I have come to depend on it – its how I make sense of the world; keep up with new trends and ways of thinking. I’d psychologically die without it!”
