Our productivity tools should become knowledge management tools as well, thus making companies more intelligent.
All information should be connected via all kinds of links (bi-directional links, relations, transclusions). It should be possible to build ontologies and transform unstructured information into structured easily. Interestingly, most organizations don’t try to connect data. However, true intelligence lives in connections, this is how we invent new things.
The more insights a knowledge worker generates in a given timeframe, the more productive she is
I define intelligence as quantity and quality of insights
Finally, we moved the Fibery user guide into… Fibery. You can publish spaces.
Data silos impede connections and impede insights generation. These problems are extremely hard to solve and there is no tool on the market that does it, but at least we should embrace them and move the new generation of productivity tools into the right direction.
A dream tool should combine work management and knowledge management processes together. It should work very well with unstructured information that has poor meta-data (note, chat, text, document, diagram) and with structured information that has rich meta-data (task, product, protein formula).
Second, this tool should be a single point of truth about anything important happening in a company. It should break information silos, replace many tools, and fetch data from those tools it can’t replace.

Fibery looks like an interesting tool! We're getting closer and closer to an all-in-one productivity tool with functional bidirectional links and strong note-taking features.
