intersection of knowledge management and…
Back on 19 September 2003, Jim McGee referenced a post by Jon Udell on Kimbro Staken’s new science experiment, Syncato. And now – actually twelve days ago – Silicon Valley Biz Ink published a press release – Sleepycat Software Honors XML Innovators.
Sleepycat Software, makers of Berkeley DB announced results for the 2003 Berkeley DB XML Innovation Awards. XML technology consultant Kimbro Staken took the second place award for developing Syncato, a weblog or “blogging” application that combines an easy-to-use online personal idea log with advanced knowledge management and publishing capabilities. Staken’s system stores each personal log as XML that can then be searched via XPath.
“Syncato maximizes the value of people’s ideas and information in blogs by making them easily searchable,” said Staken. “Under the hood, the Syncato weblog system is a XML fragment management system that relies on the flexibility of Berkeley DB XML to store XML natively alongside non-XML and semi-structured data.”[judith meskill's knowledge notes...]
