What’s a blog?
A couple of days ago I wrote a post that discussed the importance of considering blogs and Wikis as a complementary pair technologies. Today I came across this great description of a blog on Rod Boothby’s blog:
a blog is an entire CMS implementation for one person, available free and at the click of a mouse, with virtually no set-up but infinite possibilities for customization and configuration.
Sounds pretty impressive put like that, I just wanted to add though that a blog is only part of most peoples Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) system, ie the part of the PKM that handles personal publishing. Rod goes on to provide a great post that describes the challenges and opportunities associated with enterprise blogging.
