Welcome to this Easter edition of I3 UPDATE / ENTOVATION International News. Our main feature is an invited contribution from guest author Xenia Stanford, publisher of KnowMap, and represented on ENTOVATION's Global Knowledge Leadership Map. It identifies potential pitfalls facing those wanting to map knowledge connections. The following article addresses content management - the first of the challenges mentioned in our first I3 UPDATE of 2002, each of which will be reviewed over the coming months.

And don't overlook the Digest entry about what promises to be the KM Event of the year - Global KM eXchange in New York in June.
