The ILIN Knowledge Management Platform supports the inexpensive transportation, creation, distribution and sharing of knowledge. It helps organization to focus on the more difficult, softer social issues of knowledge sharing.
Blogs provide a simple, light-weight system for publishing on the web. Traditionally, they’ve been used to transfer opinion and news. Blogging in the science has mostly been journalistic: about events which affect science, the personalities in science, or about the process of science. Largely, they haven’t been part of the process of science.
The technology doesn’t determine the use however. Blogs are good for publishing time-pointed, unchanging and archived material; pretty much the same as a scientific journal. For a knowledge blog, we apply a few social conventions on top of existing blog technology, and use this to write a journal, book or encyclopedia.
