Integrating Work and Knowledge Management Using Pomegranate PKM

An open source web-based work and knowledge management application for productive and prolific people

About the Book

Much has been written about knowledge management in the context of organizations and innovative industries, but little is written in the context of the individual person, who can be a writer, researcher, blogger, or life-long learner. Pomegranate PKM is an open source system that aims to help such individuals in managing their work, from goal to publication. Website:
