Six years have passed since I joined Twitter in 2008, when twitter was in its infancy, and I was clueless about its use. I stumbled across twitter quite by accident or should I say serendipity.

All of my articles on PKM are descriptive, not prescriptive. That there is a ‘best’ way to manage knowledge an information? Isn’t that what we’ve learned there isn’t ? That's a real mistake. Your mileage will vary.
