The following may be of interest.
There's emerging technology that can leverage social networking for the significant task of acquiring and curating knowledge -- in the form of rules in Executable English.
You can Google "Executable English" to find this.
The technology underlies a Web site and SOA endpoint that works as a kind of Wiki, for collaborative content in open vocabulary, executable English (and other languages).
As you know, English text (like this sentence) is normally something for a person to read, but it cannot be used as a program that you can run on a computer.
On the other hand, executable English is something that a person can read, and that you can also run on a computer.
Shared use of the system is free, and there are no advertisements. Just point a browser to www.reengineeringllc.com .
Since the executable knowledge is in English, Google indexes and retrieves it, acting as a kind of registry.
You and your colleagues can use your browsers to write programs in English, run them, and get detailed English explanations of the results.
Applications of the system include: Answering Questions about the US Financial Stimulus Package, Risk Analysis, Reasoning over Taxonomies, Knowledge Based Data Mining, Business Intelligence, and Supply Chain Management. Please see [1-6].
To use the system there is nothing to install. Simply point your browser to the site below, to run the examples provided, and to write and run your own examples.
So, imagine government and other web sites being able to answer an open ended collection of English questions, and also explaining the answers in English. Imagine government folks and citizens socially networking, Wikipedia-style, to continually expand the range of questions that can be answered.
Apologies if you have seen this technology before, and thanks for your comments,
