Great Sebastiao, I'll arrange that. Please send me a message with some detail of your availability, so we can doodle a schedule to the others. Assuming you are in LA I would say it will suit better the group if it is early in your morning so we can make sure everybody can join.

Alejandro, I have an one year old draft but it may be too long. I can write down a two or three pages briefing with some ideas and reflections that may organize a conversation, like an online colloquium, on the subject .

Sebastiao, how would it suit you to go about it? Do you have a draft paper? Or maybe an online colloquium?

For most organisation KM is a way to spur innovation and increase productivity. However, for most development organisations, knowledge is the main value they deliver to their clients. KM in this second type organisation requires a particular treatment. I am woking with AACREA (Argentinian Association of Regional Partnerships for Experimentation in Agriculture) dedicated to deliver knowledge and learning methods to rural producers and I have some reflections I would like to share.

The group members may take notice of a valuable work just published by Columbia University on Creating a learning society. Eds. By J. Stiglitz et al. The book builds on the work of economists like Solow and Arrow on learning by doing and the economic theories of technological progress. It is clear that what truly separates developed from less developed countries is not a gap in resources and outputs but a gap in knowledge. What policy changes can be thought of to bridge the gap.

I've been a KM4Dev member for a while but have tended to "lurk" with on a very occasional posting. My academic interests are the behavioral traits that moderate an individual's propensity to share knowledge.

I am far from being a scholar, but I love to read and learn from them, if you allow me
