According to cognitive scientists, humans tend to be informavores--they forage for information, converting representations of the outside world into mental models. The traditional approach to knowledge management is to improve the flow of knowledge within a group by recording and making available what its members know. But a more recent trend, known as the personal knowledge management (PKM) approach, focuses on the individual and his or her quest to find, connect, learn, and explore.
