knowledge management

as i told shacker the other day, i figured if i'm going to charge high consulting fees to corporate clients to help them with knowledge-management projects, then it might be a good idea to get my own filing cabinet sorted out.

another meme-oid i threw out there (why always spell that "through out there"? silent phonic dictation lapse?) was that i'd been gradually dissolving the arterial plaque from my sclerotic reading-and-writing passageways.

so it's time to start putting the puzzle pieces together. the goal is to link everything up, using php and mysql, maybe rss, etc., for what i call "pep" - my "personal expression platform." or i think of it by the name of my new home page (xianlandia - just crap there now). everything from random thoughts to new collaborative sites to be enabled.

to keep myself honest (and engaged), i'm going to discuss it all right here, make my mistakes and think things through in public.

physical culture

yeah, and it's not all about thinking stuff! and it's not all about doing stuff or progress or productivity. i'm also trying to get settled here in this old body of mine. taking time away from the computer (hard to dance while glued to a computer) is part of the bigger picture.

i'm thinking about getting a fax machine at home. i mean, i'm headed to kinko's now, to fax a contract to norway (sold one of my earliest domain names), and fax a letter to network solutions to update an obsolete contact e-mail address, so i can transfer the domain to the norwegians.

faxes also make compact copiers. sure i use eFax for incoming and may even pay for outgoing, and i could use my flatbed scanner with that. i guess if i was on gilligan's island the professor could make me a pedal-driven fax out of bamboo shoots for that matter.

still not decided
