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.

 And we'll have a Unified Field Theory any day now as well...

    I've been watching a more expensive kit at Fry's for a while, but Ecotopia has a nice, more affordable (if you discount the shipping, I'm sure) Hydrogen fuel cell car.  Why am I ranting about the specifications for it?  Because I've already...
