Why is it that in nature, information processing takes up a miniscule amount of energy and is attached via a marker, but in technology, it is massively wasteful and unproductive? Why?
The Tacit, Explicit, Expressive knowledge model is that missing link between people and technology. This is the "silver bullet" of knowledge in the networked world. It is the most direct way of extending knowledge in static forms to processes. Processes comprise the fundamental form of knowledge, as they represent all phenomena. By organizing policies, procedures, and known phenomena in process forms and by integrating meaningful codes and symbols into such an environment, they can work with another to optimize relationships among them. Over time, these can become more and more comprehensive, representative and useful. This can lead to a condition in which the highest available knowledge is matched with policy and available resources in all countries and regions, responsive to the desires and needs of the people in question, which can also be arranged in process form.
