A number of social, economic, technological, and scientific trends have led to the emergence of communities of practice centered on the notion of the knowledge-based organization. Workforce mobility and its implications for transfer of expertise have made knowledge management a hot topic ever since this HCC department last discussed it. The authors point to new areas of application that the commercial enterprises of KM software solutions and knowledge networking might explore. Furthermore, the scientific foundations of knowledge elicitation methodology must be expanded in scope and capability. In discussing issues of knowledge finding, knowledge elicitation, mentoring, and costing, the authors ask whether each is a matter of building intelligent technologies or of using technology intelligently.
