A Remarkable Coincidence?

Is it just me or does that navigation for Topix.net look remarkably similar to Doug Bowman’s Sliding Doors of CSS example?

Not that there’s any law against this, although I was disappointed to see that they hadn’t implemented Doug’s technique to make the text in the navigation actually resizable. On a related note, I would go so far as to suggest that text resizing as a whole needs to be looked into on the Topix site.

Knowledge Management Best Practices

There’s a good article at CIO about knowledge management best practices using some real world examples of companies that have been successful at it.
I particularly liked the tips for making knowledge management work for other organizations:

→ Start with the enthusiasts
→ Convince the influencers
→ Make it a no-brainer
→ Hire a knowledge coordinator
→ Tell stories
→ Recognize contributors
→ Create in-person knowledge forums

Incidentally, I quite liked the “Reader ROI” sidebar that accompanies the article, which gives you a quick bulleted overview of what’s in the article and why it might be useful. A nice touch.
