“James Burke’s Knowledge Web (K-Web) is the digital incarnation of Burke’s award-winning books and television series on the nature and the history of innovation. In a video introduction, he explains his hope that “K-Web will show that we are the products of history…the K-Web should show that in some way, everybody and everything is interconnected.”
[Burke’s] work, which anticipated both hyperlinks and even hypermedia, is perfect for the WWW. The K-Web is a powerful, interactive and intuitive exploratory open source omnipedia–a learning and teaching tool fostering multiple intelligences and complex thinking in more systemic ways; it allows understanding knowledge in context, generating new ideas, and exploring a universe of data to discover how seemingly unrelated people, events and ideas are connected across time and space.
K-Web is an immersive 3D knowledge navigation system for students and lifelong learners that may also be useful for knowledge manangement.
