Institutional knowledge and information ecology in a Free Software ecosystem

999

Published on

Institutional knowledge and information ecology in a Free Software ecosystem: The early days of KIM was presented at the International conference on knowledge economy 2009. It documents some of the things we are thinking and doing at Wits only 9 months into the establishment of the Knowledge and Information Management Portfolio.

The two map slides are from http://www.worldmapper.org/
I believe used under fair use, but will gladly remove them if this is not the case.
