Advancing Knowledge and The Knowledge Economy

MIT Press

The revolution in information technology transforms not only information
and its uses but, more important, knowledge and the ways we generate and manage it.
Knowledge is now seen as input, output, and capital, even if imperfectly accounted
for or understood. Many businesses and public agencies are convinced that knowledge
can be managed in sophisticated, rational ways and that networking and information
technology are essential tools for doing so. In this collection, experts from North
America and Europe look at the transformation of knowledge in the global economy in
light of the rapid changes in information technology, the resulting explosion of
data, the recognition of intangibles as sources of value and liability, and the
increasingly blurred distinction between private and public knowledge.The appeal of
the Internet as boundary-spanning knowledge infrastructure, bridging all sectors of
the economy, is shadowed by another infrastructure of rights-based contracts,
practices, and institutions. The contributors address the ways in which the
processes for creating and organizing knowledge interact with information
technology, business strategy, and changing social and economic conditions. They
discuss the balkanization that results from the complexity of the knowledge economy,
the variety of knowledge resources, the great diversity of institutional and market
contexts, and competing models of control and cooperation--and of proprietary and
non-proprietary knowledge.Contributors:Berglind Ásgeirsdóttir, Carliss Y.
