How Knowledge Management is impacted by YOU, Time magazine's person of the year

KM Chicago, January meeting
Tuesday, January 9th, 2007
5 - 7 pm
Locations: Factiva (Loop), Allstate (Northbrook), teleconference. Details and directions in the sidebar.

Did you see the Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2006? It was the collective "you," based on all the work you are doing to create content on blogs, YouTube, wikis and many other interesting technologies. Have you heard the buzz in the technology world about a second phase of web-based technologies that build off this stuff to create newer, better services for their users? This is the time of user-generated content and Web 2.0 technology.

What has this to do with knowledge management? Come to the January KM Chicago meeting for discussions of this and many other questions, and see some examples of Web 2.0 tools and services.

The panel will consist of several Chicago-based people who are experts in Web2.0 and have experience in knowledge management. These include Barbara Iverson, a Journalism & New Media Professor at Columbia College, and David Elfing, an expert in collaborative technologies and graduate student at UIC. Full bios will be posted here shortly.
