The Knowledge Hub – part 3 :User Experience (UX)

The Knowledge Hub – part 3 :User Experience (UX)

I thought it was probably about time to post an update about the Knowledge Hub; I’ve had my head under the bonnet of the technology for longer than I had intended and given the proximity of the Beta release in April this year I should probably surface for air and reorientation. Background Given it’s been a couple of months since I last posted on this topic, a quick recap on what this is all about: The concept for the Knowledge…
