Harold Jarche, writer and consultant on social learning and PKM, often explains that informal learning is how we naturally learn and NOT a product that can be purchased. Every time we search Google or Youtube, ask a colleague for help, or read an article, we are managing our own knowledge. If anyone is selling you a PKM system, they do not understand it.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

Last week I had a presentation around using Social Media and Web 2.0 tools to improve your performance as a knowledge worker.
