The social and language barriers that exist between knowledge communities significantly hinder knowledge sharing and slow down progress. In this article, the authors investigate whether personal knowledge publishing (PKP)-a Web-based communication derived from blogging-could facilitate knowledge migration across disciplinary boundaries. Results from their case studies and online survey indicate that PKP is indeed helpful for interdisciplinary knowledge sharing. One important reason for this success is that through PKP, members of different knowledge communities can develop strong ties. Moreover, PKP's aggregate output can provide intelligent systems' developers a useful foundation of represented knowledge to build upon in their work.
