Robin Good has a fascinating post on personal knowledge mapping, with a goal “to define, draft and invent tools and approaches that would facilitate a tacit knowledge creation/sharing mechanisms while not adding extra layers of work and responsibility to every knowledge worker in the organization.” A quote from Snell:
Any Web site should become nothing more than a set of raw data feeds while knowledge workers would be provided with a personal software tool that would allow to:
1) maintain a database of personal information.
2) selectively share that data with anybody I choose.
3) autodiscover new sources of content.
4) completely control how I view and interact with the content sources I’ve chosen.
