Seems I’m not alone. Karl-Erik Sveiby, founding father of knowledge management, says:
Trust is the bandwidth of communication.
I like that. Thanks to David Gurteen for the link.
Interestingly, Sveiby also records aboriginal Tex Skuthorpe (in Treading Lightly) saying:
We don’t have a word for [knowledge].
Our land is our knowledge, we walk on the knowledge, we dwell in the knowledge, we live in our thesauras, we walk in our bible every day of our lives. Everything is knowledge.
We don’t need a word for knowledge, I guess.
The story owns the storyteller, not the other way around.
The roots are direct lived experience, dare I say “pre-intellectual participation” and custodianship.
