Interesting LinkedIn Questions

I monitor questions from LinkedIn Answers via the web feeds for several categories, and I review the questions once a week or so.  It's amazing how many get posted in that time frame - and there are always questions I want to read more about or answer myself but I don't make the time.  I also ask from time to time and find the answers to be helpful.

So, here are several LinkedIn Questions I found interesting this week.

The next question: How do you monitor the answers to specific questions?  (LinkedIn doesn't provide a feed and co.mments.com can't figure out how to parse the answers as comments.)  The folks at Edgehunt are playing with a mashup that brings questions AND answers together: Aggregated LinkedIn RSS Answers and Questions feed (or one for each LinkedIn Answers category).

Jack,

Interesting post!

your post reminded me of Examination as one model principles of practice generalization of Quoth. That is, examination is a result of challenging practice that helps to model a practice. Usually in the model, an issue is raised when the practice is challenged by questioning:

the value of the practice, that is, the purpose to be accomplished or served;
the means to achieve the purpose;
the different definitions used in the practice; and
so on.

Here the intent of the examination is not to knock the practice down, but to test or see how far the practice would apply.

Really questioning is a powerful tool to create and/or help in emerging new data, information, knowledge, and possibilities. It helps us to make distinctions; it helps us to see the structure of a controversy and organize our thoughts better for knowing and decision making; and it helps us to understand, support, or reject the practice.

Questioning asks the unshakable question, creates motion, empowering, and etc.

I feel that questioning in knowledge management will make a difference.

What do you think?

Kind regards,

Bong

Tried to get to the LinkedIN answer

"A request for participation in a conference: What Went Wrong? Why do projects fail spectacularly?" but says no longer available - am I missing something ?

thanks

Hrm... It looks like LinkedIn took down the "What Went Wrong" question for some reason.

In looking through other questions in LinkedIn Answers, I am guessing that the question was somehow marked as inappropriate or otherwise hidden for some administrative reason. Since the author was really looking for someone to speak at a conference, maybe it was flagged as a misrepresentation?

Updated above.
