  1. differences are clear and stark .. and very illustrative of the central points made recently in a discussion elsewhere regarding mainstream consulting business models and custimized and mostly process-based gudiance by social computing-oriented consultants.Not suprised McKinsey is cited in the second link reference … and I found it interesting that the quoted consultant suggested that social-computing networks don’t scale across organizations .. my take is that something really worth knowing will spread wherever (more or less) it needs to go at high speed.

  3. Euan, don’t be so negative, here is something funny to do with such a text:1. use google sets to expand the words in the titleshttp://labs.google.com/sets?hl=en&q1=modernize&q2=knowledge&q3=management&q4=&q5=&btn=Large+Set2. read the article3. think about what is in the paper that is not yet covered by the lists generated by google sets.If there is not much extra, then there is a lot of redundancy (as used in information theory, not as a synonym for layoff). So the question is: why write – or read – the text at all? If the title composed of three words, – expanded to some more through google sets – would be enough to convey “mainstream” meaning?But if the article is significanly different from the collection of buzzwords – well, then obviously the writer has something new to say, and the reader something to learn.
