Excellent point. I think when making the "tool" evaluation you first need
to assess the people and process issues. What is the objective of the
community Does it need to integrate with the organization's current work
practices or does it fall outside it? How will the knowledge be used and
reused by its participants and the organization it serves?
I think by answering some of these fundamental people and process questions,
a technology answer can be derived to support the process.
