16) Life On The Internet: Could Blogging Assist KM?: But what if the two – blogging and KM – got together? That is, what if we took the technology that allows Bloggers to quickly annotate their journeys through the web with information about the whys and wherefores with a KM system that allowed their organizational colleagues to use the weblogs as a source of expertise? Consider:

-- If experts could use blogging software that was part of their normal work environment, probably part of their browser, to note and annotate web sites they wanted to share as part of their area of expertise (note the expert decides what to share, avoiding privacy problems);

22) Germany Decries Artist\'s Performance: He has said the performance, advertised with posters around the city, was aimed at getting people to think about how they associate with nature.

Those who came to watch seemed to agree.

"It raises these kinds of questions about what are the limits of ethics and what are the limits of art. It raises questions about our relationship to animal life," said Chris Boland of Detroit, who is studying in Berlin for the summer. "That's what art is supposed to do."

Angela Rosenthal of Berlin, another onlooker, said she had no right to criticize the performance because she eats meat and uses cosmetics that are sometimes tested on animals.

"What is art? I don't know," she said.

24) -- In Memory of Frank Willison: Of all of us at O'Reilly, Frank is the one we'd most have imagined growing old and grandfatherly, dispensing to successive generations the wisdom, humor and caring that he shared with all of us.

29) THE MERCK MANUAL--Home Edition, Sec. 4, Ch. 38, Occupational Lung Diseases: Occupational lung diseases are caused by harmful particles, mists, vapors, or gases inhaled while a person works. Where in the airways or lungs an inhaled substance ends up and what type of lung disease develops depend on the size and kind of particles inhaled. Larger particles may get trapped in the nose or large airways, but the smallest ones reach the lungs. There, some particles dissolve and may be absorbed into the bloodstream; most solid particles that don't dissolve are removed by the body's defenses.

31) Log on to Premji\'s 10-point success mantra: WIPRO chairman Azim H Premji, one of India's most successful entrepreneurs, on Friday prescribed a 10-point recipe for success, based on the lessons he had learnt during his last 35 years in the organisation.

  1. You should dare to dream,
  2. define what you stand for,
  3. never lose your zest and curiosity,
  4. always strive for excellence,
  5. build selfconfidence,
  6. learn to work in teams,
  7. take care of yourself,
  8. preserve,
  9. have a broader social vision and
  10. finally never let success go to your head
Premji said.

"What saddens me most is to see young, bright people getting disillusioned by a few initial setbacks and slowly turning cynical and some of them want to migrate to America in the hope this is the solution," he said adding, it required courage to keep dreaming.

Stressing on the importance of "dreams", Premji said they were most needed not when everything was going right, but when everything was going wrong.

"Being the best in the country is not enough: one has to be the best in the world," he said, adding that excellence was a moving target and one had to constantly raise the bar.

34) Primus Inter Pares: Primus Inter Pares >>> First Among Equals

c Semper Tyrannis >>> Thus ever to tyrants. The motto of the State of Virginia. John Wilkes Booth is supposed to have shouted this phrase as he jumped to stage of Ford's Theater after shooting Abraham Lincoln.

Appa : all management gurus throughout the world say the word 'manager' is misnomer. Current society, at least in developed countries, is a networked society. They can manage themselves. They want only a leader. (As Abraham Lincoln said a leader is only a primus inter pares). Also remember that he who knows and knows that he knows alone is the leader.


35) The Internet Classics Archive | The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius: From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper.

From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character.

From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich.

From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally.


36) good performances this season: One of your reporters met me the other day in Hamsadhwani, asking for my opinion about the good performances this season.

Among others,Prince Rama Varma came up with a very good performance.We heard him for the first time.Earlier, Vasundhara Rajagopalan sang extremely well, the memory of which lingers on.The only other names that come to my mind are that of Aruna Sairam, Madurai G S Mani & T M Krishna.Well, Have a good day.

41) Observing Without the \"Me\", Krishnamurti, Brockwood Park, 9/5/70: It is always difficult to keep simple and clear. The world worships success, the bigger the better; the greater the audience the greater the speaker; the colossal super buildings, cars, aeroplanes and people. Simplicity is lost. The successful people are not the ones who are building a new world. To be a real revolutionary requires a complete change of heart and mind, and how few want to free themselves. One cuts the surface roots; but to cut the deep feeding roots of mediocrity, success, needs something more than words, methods, compulsions. There seem to be few, but they are the real builders--the rest labor in vain.

One is everlastingly comparing oneself with another, with what one is, with what one should be, with someone who is more fortunate. This comparison really kills. Comparison is degrading, it perverts one's outlook. And on comparison one is brought up. All our education is based on it and so is our culture. So there is everlasting struggle to be something other than what one is. The understanding of what one is uncovers creativeness, but comparison breeds competitiveness, ruthlessness, ambition, which we think brings about progress. Progress has only led so far to more ruthless wars and misery than the world has ever known. To bring up children without comparison is true education.

46) Book recommendations for potential writers?: Reading New Yorker magazine every week is probably more than enough if you want to keep up with what is good modern writing. Personally, I prefer Edith Wharton and her generation, but that's not a style that is likely to get one published in any modern magazine.


47) The Standard: The Limits Of Credibility: Microsoft got beat fair and square. To maintain credibility with regulators - and customers - it needs to realize that fact, fast.
