Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

What’s KMbeing Been Up To???

For those of you who may have been wondering what I have been up to and why the lack of blog posts recently – apart from the usual 2 weeks summer vacation (cottage & NYC) – I have recently taken a new position as Executive Assistant, Business Services with KoboKobo is a global eBook retailer backed by Chapters/ Indigo Books & Music, REDgroup Retail, Cheung Kong Holdings, and other leaders in technology and retail.  Kobo believes consumers should be able to read any book, anytime, anywhere, and on the device of their choice.

It is this broad and inclusive approach to reading & sharing knowledge, stories & creativity that holds great appeal to me, and aligns with my own views about the value and inclusiveness of Knowledge Mobilization for the benefit of society.

Having just started with Kobo, much of my time has been spent on a learning curve and getting to know the new role and responsibilities. I have now moved into a weekly “9 to 5” schedule which doesn’t afford me the same amount of free time to dedicate to my KMbeing blog as in my previous capacity as a community-based and independent digital researcher.

For those dedicated KMbeing blog and twitter followers who continue to enjoy and share my blog and tweets – I thank you for your patience and continued following. 

I may not be able to blog post as frequently as I have in the past, yet I do hope to share something about Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) at least once a week in a weekly blog – and the importance of KMb for the benefit of society.

As always, I am KM “being” – maybe just not as frequently, but still just as strong in my beliefs about the value of Knowledge Mobilization for everyone.

    Congratulations to your new job

    Congratulations. My husband just acquired a KOBO and loves it. I, however, am a bit more traditionalist when it comes to reading material. As Prospero touted “I love my books.” Like Prospero, I would only go willingly into the abiss with my library in tow. Yes, keeping the entire library in a handy and compact device like a KOBO would certainly make for lighter travelling. But, where would I write margin notes? The cold feel of technology seems heartless when compared to the smell and feel of quality paper. Ah, yes, I do love my books.

    Be patient as I am dragged into the digital age. It may take some time as dragging my library with me is no easy task!

    Again, my friend, many congratulations on your new position. It seems well suited to you. I am looking forward to your updates, even though they may be few.
