With the ubiquitous availability of the Internet, the possibility of creating a centralized repository of an individual’s knowledge has become possible. Although, at present, there are many efforts to develop collaborative systems such as wikis (Leuf & Cunningham, 2002), Web logs or blogs (Winer, 2002) and sharable content management systems (Wikipedia, 2004), an area that is overlooked is the development of a system that would manage personal knowledge and information. For example, in an educational setting, it has been found that most lecturers customize content to suit their particular delivery styles. This article outlines a framework that uses Web technologies allowing the storage and management of personal information, the sharing of the content with other personal systems, and allows for annotations to be captured within context from people who visit the personal knowledge portfolio.
