The purpose and limits of KM

The purpose and limits of KM

Bristol Gurteen Knowledge Cafe

Thursday 11th June 2009


Led by Ed Mitchell with thought provoking introductory matter from Chris Dean:

Since "KM" and "The Universe" are not synonyms it follows that KM is some subset of the latter, but which? Similarly, there is a purpose to KM - well there is isn't there! (please let there be a purpose!!!).

It's not really as abstract as it sounds, though it will provoke discussion...


Thursday 11th June
18:30 - 21:00

Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol.
Directly above the 'Leadworks' restaurant, entrance opposite @Bristol:

"Stand with your back to the main entrance to the @Bristol building in Anchor Square, so the Firehouse restaurant is to your left and Oceana to your right (and Pero's bridge in front of you across the square). At the Anchor Rd end of the Firehouse, by the bike rack, is a door covered in circles. That's PMStudio - ring the buzzer."
