The open source creation of knowledge

One particular reason that knowledge management is still relevant is the value of web 2 tools for building up knowledge – especially blogs and wikis which can be used as tools for constructing knowledge collectively.  Because they use tagging – a practical example of ‘data about data’ which is valuable given how intricate knowledge can be – they provide tools which help readers to navigate knowledge.  Moreover because they invite comments and, in the case of a wiki, edits from readers, they are an example of how the open source approach can be applied to collecting and disseminating knowledge.
