web 2.0 for development

Google and knowledge management


As described in a post on TechCrunch called “Is This The Future Of Search?” and as appearing in this Video proposed by Adrian Pike, Google is getting closer and closer to amplifying its core activities, the Search, with some Knowledge management flavor.

As you can see from the image above, this approach will offer users the opportunity to: manage search results, rate them, redefine the list of results, cancel results and add comments.

So doing, it seems like the “next” search will be deeply influenced by KM activities, precooked by other surfers on the same keyword. Google by definition is an engineer company: automation and machine-driven activities have been a given approach until now. Things seem to be changing and a new “victory” of collaboration is on the way!
