Most of what business and professional people call KM is actually facilitated knowledge transfer. I suggest that knowledge “management” consists of both making information available for both person:information (asynchronous) search AND transferring information by story telling or narratives about personal experience in person:person (synchronous) search…One can envision a day when most human knowledge and experience is somehow codified and accessible on demand, and knowledge management as we call it today is no longer necessary. Maybe we will each have our own personal “Hal” or embedded microchip. But that is a topic for another day!

Warnog must not sleep. He comes across as a surly, know-it-all, berating parent type person. He starts early in the fight to lambast everyone in the zone for giving it all way, for being losers, for not knowing how to play, etc. He criticizes the attempts of other players to give guidance or directions. He ridicules failures when the “horde” team has a success. As a result, he has become a phenomenon.

Researchers at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia have developed a new computer system architecture that can carry out gesture recognition. The early version of this technology uses “data gloves” that allow the computer to monitor the user’s hand or shoulder movements. This input can then be fed to a program, a game, or simulator, or used to control a character in a 3D virtual environment.
