Management literature recognizes that knowledge is replacing more traditional sources of competitive advantage, and perhaps the only sustainable competitive advantage is the ability to use and embed knowledge into an organization’s life. In this chapter, we look at the notion of embedding knowledge chunks in a variety of contexts from the viewpoint of ontological frames. We suggest a three-level typology that was driving our efforts to develop a knowledge-rich application based on Semantic Web technologies. The core concepts refer to our Frame-Annotate-Navigate framework, and we discuss this extrapolation in terms of moving from designing knowledge portals and centralized repositories toward supporting open and modular knowledge spaces.
