On June 14, we will have the 4th BC Campus-hosted Online Community Enthusiasts’ Gathering. This is primarily a f2f event, but we will do more than tweet with the hashtag (this year it is #OCE2012) to hear from, and share with online community enthusiasts around the world.
This year’s theme is facilitating scheduled activities. Here is a link to more information.
This year we are organizing an Un-chat. Between 2 and 3 pm Pacific we will use this hashtag to pose approximately four questions. So far, it sounds like a regular twitter chat, right? But the questions will emerge through the event. The first question will have come up through an open space process in f2f event. Subsequent questions may come from the chat or backchannel online communication, or people in the room, or some synthesis of these sources.
There will be a prize going to the person who stirs up thinking most effectively from a distance (yes, it will be a subjective onsite decision!)
Please spread the word in your networks to people who play in these spaces and would like to learn with us.
I noticed on twitter that “elmi” was trying to assemble a list of South African KM publications. The community KM4Dev could be helpful. I also thought it would be interesting to see what would come up in a quick search using the more generic term “Africa” for KM work. I found more than expected, and have just scratched the surface. The link below shows a few of the existing papers (not filtered to exclude work that might better be described as information management).
