Personal knowledge management (PKM) is an individually—according to own abilities, interests & motivation—created process to make sense of information and experience in our electronic surround, states Harold Jarche in his blog post of 17 March 2010. He uses the diagram below (seek-sense-share) to illustrate the value adding through five different ways, namely filtering (sorting out signal from noise); validation (ensuring reliable information); synthesis (indicate patterns, trends or flows); presentation (making understandable); and customisation (describing in context).

In Harold Jarche's follow-up post on 18 March 2010 he states: "People use their knowledge to make sense of data and information. People create information that represents their knowledge, which can then be more widely shared."
I dare say that the two post by Harold Jarche captures my intentions with this blog learning_in_vivo. Ultimately my aim is to share and engage in debate to personally grow in wisdom.
