Knowledge Space Search

I created a custom search engine combining blog rolls of people I follow as Knowledge Space Search on Google.

Testing time for the engine…I have google versus my search engine well which is also on Google, but only I understand my context better than how google understands my search term. Here it is, I tried with the popular term in KM circles, Safe Fail comparison below

Google Regular Search

Google Regular Search

Knowledge Space Search

Knowledge Space Search

You can see that Google does not distinguish between Fail Safe and Safe Fail due to I guess proximity of terms, and the first real distinction is coming in the 7 the item of result set.

Compare that with what you get in my custom search engine Knowledge Space Search

I thinkĀ  the underlying blogs/sites will need to be kept updated on a regular basis with newer and fresher resources, which I think is not a huge effort considering the fact that my google reader feeds is still under 100.

Context Switching

This is something K Manager job demands.
Making sense of a business demands in depth understanding of context. You do this once, twice, every day. And then increasing scope just means you have increased the number of contexts that you will cater to. That results in gradual loss of relevance to customers and lack of depth in adoption, now all your services are only lip services. Success then on is left to serendipity and that rare person to make sense of a what the “KM people” are saying.
Choice is simple to limit/not the contexts.
