PKM tools from Collectivism

• What do you use to manage your knowledge?

Information and knowledge are key ingredients in today's world. The pace of development is frustrating many people...we are missing tools that allow for sorting and organizing information/knowledge. I've pieced together a set of tools that I use to make sense of the world around me:

- RSS and blogs
- Wikis for collaboration
- Discussion forums for dialogue
- Furl to keep pages of note
- for tagging and following micro trends
- Skype for real-time dialogue
- iVocalize for real-time collaboration/presentation
- Plone as a "knowledge base" - i.e. a centralizing tool for files, some community building
- The "old stuff" - email, IM

What types of tools are you using to manage your personal knowledge?

- rss for listening
- blogs for speaking (dialog, publication, portfolio)
- wikis for organizing my thinking and collecting my synthesized responses
- raw server space for active archiving documents
- CD's for inactive archive
- database for indexing content
- furl as clipping file
- delicious, but I don't know why or what
- flickr for publishing individual photos
- skype for IM/voip conference
- Civicspace (Drupal based) for collaborative/community spaces
- IM: Usual suspects
- email, irc: use is declining


RSS feeds really changed my life... i have so much more in just a few minutes of my day.

Backpack and Moodle.
Backpack is awesome. I keep links with notes to myself about why I decided to save the link.

The Moodle package I have includes a "course" for instructors so I blog and wiki to myself. Kinda like a diary more robust.

Both allow me articulate what I have learned and ask myself questions that I can think about later.
