What next 2.0?

There seems to be absolutely no dearth of new terms in this era of mind-boggling focus on social networking and blogs which themselves were terms that became popular post year 2000. One of the oft-discussed terms, Web 2.0 has been proclaimed by some to be something that organizations better pay humble attention to; While some others have dismissed it as pure hype.

It is the turn of KM 2.0 now! Is this nothing but weakly disguised personal knowledge management that attaches social bookmarking, blogging, shared RSS and the like to its costume? I've always believed that personal KM means huge participation and that it comes close to perfect answers in response to the "What's in it for me?" question. The downside being chaos and confusion in the absence of organizational standards and governance to make it easy to identify, filter, control and manage information.
