      Dear all,

      What's your imminent view on how adaptiveness-rich, or lack thereof,
      corporate-nexus KM conferences are, as compared to (a) what emerging
      epistemology expectations are and (b) what these events could be? If you
      were such an events strategist how would you facilitate your blend of
      priorities?

      Here's fodder for thought:-

      "(Upcoming Amsterdam KM Event) Nobody yet knows what will happen. Will the
      combined event still attract people numbering in their thousands and if so
      will the Fringe be the
      majority? If so will this be the largest non-academic event where people
      come to network around a discipline and themes chosen by those who come
      (as opposed to a conference producer or speakers)?" Chris Macrae
