I was thinking the other day what if you put Twitter or a Twitter-like application on top of something like Google. Not only would you get access to historical search results, but you would also be tapping into a ‘live’ knowledge base. A knowledge base that is truly up-to-date, a shared knowledge base, created simply out of the tacit knowledge that we all possess. We enter in our skills, expertise, experience and any and all questions pertaining to our criteria is sent to us, waiting for a response. Or we simply conduct searches for questions to answer. The system becomes the knowledge base itself. A single repository of knowledge that is constantly updated, constantly maintained, organic, growing, alive. The system through its users would check itself. The system would essentially unite all of us in a collective knowledge bank. Just a thought.
