For the next two weeks, I will be guest blogging on Dave Snowden's Cognitive Edge website.
It's been almost 10 years since I first met Dave at a KM conference in San Diego. I was a new editor at a new magazine then. I heard his keynote in the middle of a lot of talks that didn't make any sense to me. I went straight to my boss and told him we had to get this guy into the magazine. Later, I had a chance to be part of the Cynefin team at IBM and to work with Dave, Peter Allen, Jeff Goldstein, Michael Lissack, Max Boisot, Pierpaolo Andriani and others on the relaunch of the hybrid journal Emergence: Complexity & Organisation.
I'm honored by the invitation and terribly intimidated, since previous guest bloggers have included gurus such as Max Boisot and Gary Klein.
