I’m moving my dissertation posts and pages to a new domain (fun with Drupal!), so this thought is just moving jitters, right?

I just had the kind of thought that should make a doctoral candidate’s blood run cold: what if my whole thesis is an oxymoron?

I’m looking at the South Dakota blogosphere as a manifestation of self-organizing social knowledge management. And just now I thought, wait a minute: where’s the management? No one tells bloggers what to write, or when, or how much. No one hires or fires bloggers. And no one has to read any of what the bloggers write.

Can knowledge management just happen?
