# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)

Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.

Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.

Lacking KM texts : I'm working on my summer course, and realizing that my bookshelf is almost devoid of KM books. It's all IT, webdev, and ecommerce. Even the library's collection leaves a fair amount to be desired. Now that I'm officially teaching a KM course, however, I should be able to start looking to publishers to provide desk copies of some of their texts.

For the summer I'm using the text currently being used by the faculty of mgmt: Davenport's Working Knowledge. It's a good text, but a bit dated and a bit light. I'm hoping I'll be able to find something more substantive for the next time I teach the course.

In the meantime, I've dug up my coursepacks from the KM courses I took at GSLIS. Most the key articles are there so I should be ok, at least for the work I'll be doing this evening and over the weekend.
