Living Knowledge @DavidGuteen

Earlier I responded to David Gurteen suggesting that the IM / KM debate didn’t need any new “definitional” debates beyond those already established.

Here a new post from Chris Collison – a blogger with a similar background to mine – again tweeted by David.

Really the same Wisdom > Knowledge > Information > Data “definitional” stack for me, but an attractive way of defining the knowledge > information distinction. Chris says:

Knowledge is information with life left in it.
(Information itself – is useful and usable – but is dead,
…. whereas knowledge is alive.)

That’s good. And in that same vein, I make the meta-statement:

Wisdom is to know that knowledge is information
…. with dynamic quality.
