"Tacit knowledge doesn't allow itself to be captured"

 

"In a knowledge-intensive business environment, it is often very hard or even impossible to anticipate in advance what information is needed.

If there is more to choose from, chances are there will be something for (almost) any need. That’s also why it has become critical for knowledge workers to access to the information abundance on the Internet.
