Insightory – Management Repository

December 3, 2007 — Leave a comment

InsightoryJust read about Insightory – a knowledge sharing and collaboration website. You can upload and share original management content, read others’ and comment on them. Quite an interesting idea. In fact, they want to be to management knowledge, what Wikipedia is to general knowledge.

The idea is simple – you upload documents or presentations and others can tap into your knowledge. They have a viewer with which you can view the document or presentation right on the page itself. And if you like it, you can even download a local copy of it. You can share documents with friends and even start a discussion with your own gyan.

They have a contest running with prizes ranging from $100 to $3000. You can find more details here.

One key difference between Insightory and Wikipedia is that you can edit any document on Wikipedia but not on Insightory. Of course, if you allowed people to edit them, then you run into copyright issues. Also, most management ideas are just philosophy or theory. They are not facts. So it may not be really practical to have a Wikipedia-type interface.

We will have to wait and see how this comes up. Wishing them all the best!
