Groucho Marx (American comedian) was often quoted as saying something like, "I won't belong to any organization that would have me as a member."
Pumacy Technologies AG, a German-based company released this past week the results of an exploratory study that they did of Knowledge Management blogs, and named 50 blogs that are a part of their study.
In a roundabout way, Google Alerts notified me that Mary Abraham's blog, Above and Beyond Knowledge had linked to Jack Vinson's Knowledge Jolt announcing the study. So I eventually get around to the study and YKM (this blog) is listed on it. This is surely the sign of the KM apocalypse.
Of course, I appreciate the attention to the blog...why not....most posts are breadcrumbs for my own future re-use, but what was the selection process?
In fairness, Pumacy is a Knowledge Management vendor. They appear to just be supporting the fact that the KM space is thriving and full of active participants writing about various aspects of KM....which is done here...and Pumacy did locate some prolific bloggers including the 2 mentioned above...but based upon the amount of postings, amount of comments and Google ranking, it just strikes me as a lack of good research (time and/or effort) on Pumacy's part add this blog to the list, instead of going out and finding the really active KM blogs and list them as a part of their study.
Since they studied and printed it once, hopefully Pumacy will continue their study and bring to light some great blogs.
