Replying to LO20589 --

I suggest that we need to avoid the idea that KM is a "thing" that is
controlled by anyone - it is a concepts that is being used by many
different interests.

Certainaly, technology perspectives are tending to dominate, and there are
very strong reasons that this is so. Unfortunately it tends to lead to
obscuring other more difficult to rationalise concepts - such as the human
and social perspectives.

We need to generate strategies to counter this influence - and that I
think can on only be achieved by engaging with these dominant forces.
