The knowledge Vine

Mais uma rede social que promete ajudar muita gente com um modo de operação bem prático.

http://www.theknowledgevine.net/

How it works

All an individual must do to use the system is to join the network, a very simple process at www.theknowledgevine.net . Then, when you are ready to pose a question to the network, write it in the form of a single sentence question to a special email address for the system. This email is then forwarded to all the members of the network. If a colleague on the network has the knowledge or information you seeking, they will reply directly back to you (and only you) by email.

The absolute rules of the system are:

  1. Only one sentence allowed (plus contact information) – this forces the requester to communicate very clearly with all the individual experts on the network
  2. The sentence must be written in the form of a question
  3. Only reply to the person making the request (no-one else cares)
  4. No offers, promotions, or advertising

Example questions that individuals might post to the Knowledge Vine e-mail address:

  • Does anyone have a good contact for technology licensing personnel at Philips Semiconductor?
  • Does anyone have any good licensing agents/broker contacts in Taiwan or Japan?
  • Does anyone have any market data on the blood glucose market?
  • Does anyone know a good market research specialist in the environmental sector?

Because of the e-mail simplicity, the only traffic users see is an occasional single sentence emails in their in box. Because the e-mails are written in a very clear communication style, they are easy and very quick to read.

When posting a request to the group, the individual typically receives  5-10 replies, either with the information needed, or suggesting who might be able to provide it. The amount of traffic on the system is very light – typically 20 new questions are posed per month so email in the box load is minimal.
