Question ID: 728105
I am looking for help identifying quality software programs that will
essentially allow me to create and maintain a personal knowledge
database- where I can store information that I learn, or from web
pages, or MS Office documents etc.- keep them organized- and then
allows me to find the information quickly as needed.  I'm impressed
with the functions of Wikipedia, but wanted a list of other potential
software solutions.  My preference is workstation PC software, but am
willing to consider other solutions.

I'd like to use such a tool to create a personal knowledge database
for 1 person, and perhaps also for a small team of 5-6 people.  Thank
There is no answer at this time.

MindManager is an excellent tool for organizing your personal
knowledge. You may also want to look at Another products in the market for PKC are: which allows us to clip and capture web pages and
snippets. Other products are: (PersonalBrain) and (VisiMap).

Thanks Sam203-ga for your comments. Webforia sounds like a good tool
for the web page captures, however I could not find it online anywhere
to download.
Any ideas on what happened to this product - perhaps it became another product?
