Phil Wheat's Knowledge Matters

This blog started out as "Developing SharePoint" but has expanded outside of that exclusive domain to a number of other areas concerning Knowledge and the various forms and representations it can take.

About Phil Wheat

Formerly "Developing SharePoint", I'm reworking my blog to find a way to cover the increasing number of topics that I end up being asked about.  My core interest remains in Knowledge Management, but the more knowledge we gather and put in an actionable form, the more I get called on to comment on DOING something with that knowledge.  Thus my quest to redefine the blog and pull a common thread through the topics.

    Tess was watching some old shows of Xena, and I walked by.  What's that got to do with the post?  I could have sworn I heard Morgan Sheppard's voice on the show, though a quick check on IMDB informed me I'm wrong.  That got me to thinking...
