“Knowledge management is an oxymoron”

Yesterday at the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds conference Tony O’Driscoll (SL – Wada Tripp) stated that “Knowledge management is an oxymoron, knowledge cannot be “managed”, it can only be enabled. Learning and education is about optimizing our networks, it’s not about pouring information into people’s heads”. Also mentioned was “the “Immerent” which i the immersive Internet that will redefine learning and collaboration. 2D synchronous learning, knowledge sharing spaces, web 2.0 tools and virtual worlds are on a convergence trajectory towards an immersive web future that will redefine how we work, learn and play.”

If you have not read the book “Learning in 3D” by Karl Kappa and Tony O’Driscoll I highly recommend it. They talk about how “3D can enhance knowledge sharing and social networks.” Slides can be seen here.

Today I got a twitter from Tony that states “72 Hour “Moon Shot like Challenge” to Stop the Spill. Please read and if you like, pass along http://bit.ly/aNKT5h This was mentioned yesterday also, let “us” solve this oil spill crises.
