Blogging complements the water-cooler

Anders Jacobsen, whose blog I have just started to read on a regular bases (due to his comments here that I still need to respond too), has some rather compelling posts about KM and blogging, like for example this response to the recent Business 2.0 article on Management by Blog:

Anders Jacobsen: “I don’t think blogging in businesses will be capturing the water-cooler buzz… On the other hand blogs definitely have potential to smoothen out the intranet / knowledge database submission process. “

I agree that corporate blogging will have a greater impact in the capturing of information, but do think blogging complements the water-cooler buzz, especially with the emergence of portable wireless devices and moblogging — Albeit, blogging will never take the place of face-to-face real-time ad hoc collaboration.
