This is the future landing page for the Knowledge Package Manager Initiative
Stay Tuned follow @KPMOrg
The idea is to build packages of knowledge that can be shared, imported freely using an open standard like RDF/owl/skos/dc (RSS is using the same bricks). it could then be consumed by apps or viewed directly. As opposed to wikipedia which aims to gather stable, verifiable, widely validated and accepted knowledge the goal of KPM is to allow to share knowledge in a more bit size, half baked form.
kpm was inspired by npm a very popular system to manage software components, part of nodejs community. Bruno’s though was that if tools that help so much developers to build great product could be made available in a similar way for learners it would empower us to learn more, faster and more satisfactory.
As of August 4th, 2015 two sub projects are under way.
The periodic table is a mix of structured, organized knowledge and a text based free form. The structure hold the project like a scaffolding, gives a strong organization. The free text allows the full expression of knowledge not yet fully articulated and on progress to be crowd-sourced and collectively refined. If cheese was database and dessert was written posts, it’s like having both cheese and dessert on the menu for the same price. Kneaver is organized in the same way.
Twitter chats are a great way to learn, to get in touch with people would master the topic right now and to network with peers interested in the same topic. Great but there are many chats, each with their schedule, periodicity, handles. Open Twitter chat is an open directory for chats. Open because every host can create his record and maintain it by himself without the need of a moderator or an intermediate. Open again because the data is free and delivery under multiple formats and protocols. So it is possible to reuse it in apps, in listing directly.
