"Information resides all around us. If required we can choose to receive information 24 hours a day. Switch on the television, radio, computer or your smartphone and a storage of information will be brought to you on demand. This type of information is explicit. In other words this is information that has in some way been extracted, documented and registered most often in digital form. It’s easy to share and pass on but not all information is explicit.
What about the information which resides in our heads and is gathered and based on experiences? Perhaps this information has even more value and if so how can we extract the knowledge in our minds and share with others? This is what we call tacit knowledge."
