What is personal knowledge base?
Personal knowledge base is a tool that helps you to gather, classify, store, search, retrieve and share your personal knowledge. What makes PKBs unique is that they contain knowledge that is important to you personally and not to the public or to an organization. In other words, it contains distilled knowledge about specific topics that are of interest to you.
Personal knowledge base is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to have their hard-earned knowledge and insights stored and available at any time.
Why use an personal knowledge base?
Personal knowledge management tools helps you remember thoughts and ideas, explore them, and gain new understanding and insight. It enables you to capture knowledge before it elusively disappears. Having all your personal knowledge in a single app allows you to review it regularly and to remember it easier.
One of my favorite and most used programs, MyInfo, is now out in a new version that wraps in tagging, fast searching and other tweaks that put it ahead of the opposition.
Modern research inevitably turns up a mishmash of mixed media, ranging from Web pages to audio files to text notes. MyInfo provides a way to arrange different kinds of research data, creating hierarchically organized documents that store and connect these snippets of multimedia. MyInfo is an impressive tool for students and researchers who want to take the next step beyond file cards.
The searching in MyInfo is very fast compared with other programs reviewed here. For me this program has turned out to be the closest to being the perfect program of all reviewed in this blog.
