Hosting an Farhouse on Monday on teens, social media, AI and such things (Teaching kids how to fool their moms with AI and other hijinks). Join, listen and share the space with me.

On Thursday I joined a talk on knowledge management. It was all about tech this, AI that. But for a team to have excellent knowledge management, they don't need state of the art tools. Just humans who religiously follow the process. Someone remarked that documenting, you know writing stuff down, updating documents and links, everything that is critical to knowledge management isn't sexy. It's underpaid, not a priority in most teams, not part of your job description, and not rewarded.

I picked up the conversation with a non-crypto behavioral scientist and internet friend of mine. We're chatting for the past 2 years or so, but still have to meet IRL. We ended with the conclusion that documenting is the input to many work-tasks and we are trained to value outputs. The stuff that is visible, not the documents, resources and so on that feed into tasks.

What I read this week

The idea that our thoughts and being travel at the speed of walking. By traveling faster than that you loose connection with your soul. A journey is about going to a place and coming home. The change in you is realized when you come home, not while you are journeing.
