The TagBox Manifesto
We are here to reimagine the way teams keep, manage, and share content.
To do so, we follow the following principles:
Ease of use before all
If you need to work to save and share your content, it will not get shared
If it takes months of implementation and training to use your knowledge management platform, it will not be easy to use.
If your company needs a "traffic cop” to make sure everything is saved to the right place, it will not be easy to use.
A common taxonomy
For a decentralized knowledge system to work, we must make sure everyone uses the same terminology, otherwise there will be chaos
Metadata over folders
Folders are limiting and archaic. With folders, a piece of content can only be stored in one place. With folders, you end up managing a structure of hundreds, if not thousands, of sub-folders. Folders are great for individual use, and terrible for team collaboration.
If you need to convert each piece of content to your wiki’s format, it will not be easy to use.
Let important content find you
Your knowledge management platform should know what content is relevant for you, and let you know what’s going on.
