I believe that one way to boost the collective intelligence of an organisation or community (and I believe that this is a very worthwhile goal) is to adopt a collaborative knowledge acquisition process.
Here's the process I'm going to try and use from now on, or at least until I can (collaboratively) develop something better.
I'd really love to hear from anyone who can think of ways to make this process even more collaborative.
Ashley, thanks very much for your comments.
I'd love to be able to convince more people of the personal benefits of organising their knowledge using a wiki, whether it be a public one like Wikipedia or WikiPWEA, a Council wiki or a personal wiki.
I'd be really interested to hear how people who don't use wikis organise their personal knowledge and if any of these other knowledge organisation tools could be substituted for wikis in my proposed process.
Perhaps I'm the only one who worries about organising their personal knowledge?
The point you make about information falling into the ether is a good one that I've pondered myself before. There seems to be a lot of good will when it comes to sharing ideas and knowledge, but I just don't think we are doing it as efficiently as we could be, and that this leads to duplication of effort and rework.
