Knowledge management

Knowledge management…
Words conjure an image of corporate suits
Running in circles
Trying to capture knowledge in little glass jars
And “manage” it

They are seeking to control something
That should be untamed and wild
Let knowledge run amuck
Let us not consign it to cages or storage units
Like tired mice or spare sets of luggage
To be catalogued by scientists
Or grow dusty in the basement

Portioning out knowledge by permission only
Is elitist and condescending
This knowledge is too much for you
Here, we will help you by offering it
On a need-to-know basis
Password protected
Corporate secrets
Corporate bullshit

Unlock the CPUs
Smash the encryption keys
Send knowledge flooding down cubicle alleys
And over firewall waterfalls

Knowledge be free
Be unmanaged
