Kneaver is the secret weapon of Agile Learners. High performers understand that taking responsibility of their knowledge processes is the key of their development.
Kneaver is an innovative Knowledge Processes Toolset with social learning streams, relations between ideas and mental processes as first citizens when most existing services are still centered either around documents, maps or messages. Kneaver connects, integrates and add value to the services you use already.
We have plans for individuals and teams. On need we can combine plans, add other services like WordPress hosting, custom applications to fullfil completely your needs.
Curiosity is the premier strength of Lifelong learners. At his time, hungry learners could only get their knowledge from reading endlessly printed material. Today it’s easier: whatever you want to learn it suffices to google it and you get access. It’s not enough to learn and be ready to apply. Building your knowledge is not about searching and relearning it every day. It requires some skills and the tools that go with. This is precisely what Kneaver is about and what RadialSoft proposes to you.
It’s a tool for lifelong learners, always curious of collecting new ideas, following their trails of thoughts, collecting them in card decks, relating them to what they know already, traversing them regularly and building innovative ideas.
Are you a Lifelong learner? Stay hungry, keep reading.
Kneaver helps to turn those reads and thoughts we collect into effective knowledge
In 2016 we are constantly learning, we are flooded with information, we hold conversations on social media, spread across continents and lasting days, we take notes during our work. How to collect and connect all those trails of thought into knowledge and build upon it? By using Kneaver. Kneaver sits on your side, all your work is always private.
Kneaver integrates with all the services, keep records and let you bookmark, annotate, relate and classify. You don’t need to care about watching and noting continuously, it’s already with you.
Picture, sketches, schemas, tweets, concept maps are part of Kneaver. Not as attachments like in old style writing software but deeply connected.
This knowledge can then be activated, used, applied, experienced. Kneaver is about using Knowledge, relating it, refining it, weed it. The more you traverse your notes, the more it becomes organized the more you understand, connect and learn.
Lifelong learners are generous
You often see rich people sitting on their money, you rarely see knowledgeable people keeping it for them. Learning encourages generosity for sure but when we sharing we tend to learn again, reach a higher level of agility, so it’s really a Win-win and smart people know it. Sharing is an occasion to turn floating thoughts into words and let them go into yet another iteration of understanding. Sharing is also like trading, the more we share, the more we receive.
Kneaver encourages sharing by making it easy. You can build nice documents, mindmaps directly inside your knowledge. It stays associated, change in one place, it changes everywhere. You can push content to WordPress and maintain it from Kneaver. A typo? a new idea? fix it Kneaver, WordPress will update. A paragraph you prefer to keep for you? scopes are there to help. This reduces drastically the cost of sharing. Sharing becomes a pleasure.
Kneaver is a toolset to assist you along all those knowledge processes, maintain your knowledge network, and the janitor watching on your knowledge tasks.
How does it works?
Kneaver is built on top of 4 pillars
1. Aggregation Engine
A very powerful semantic database and a smart aggregation engine. Aggregation takes place on the fly. It is context dependent. it uses smart rules, lexical inferences and support multiple levels of privacy. It takes from the native semantic database and dig further from all your connected services simultaneously.
2. Template Engine
3. Stream Integration
Stream integration with tons of services like Twitter, Facebook, Evernote, email, RSS, diigo, WordPress and the list is growing. Streams allow to capture conversation and friendship across multiple networks. A convo can start on Twitter, move to facebook, integrate blog posts, comments and a shared Google doc: for Kneaver it stays all one, like in your mind. Kneaver doesn’t deal with handles but with humans.
Simple uncontrolled “if then this” rules are so old style. The majority of our processes integrate several actions, some automated, some manual, some assisted (like checklists). Sitting on the robust triangle of above 3 pillars is the metaprocess engine. It tracks your knowledge processes of all kind: slow and fast. It can be to automate fetching news or to support managing your network, building list, reconciling keywords between Diigo and WordPress etc.
Diigo, WordPress, Facebook and Twitter are trademarks of their respective owners.
This is an occasion to stay foolish: be an early adopter. You have the option to start using Kneaver with the hosted services provided by RadialSoft. Become part of the story, be foolish and take a yearly all included plan.
It’s a Win-win deal. you show support for the project while getting awesome benefits:
You will retain this early adopter price even as more features, more integrations are added. The price of the “all included plan” is expected to grow as the system is moree complete and mature but you keep your low price.
You get access to the roadmap and get your say on the priorities. this places you effectively next to the driver seat. You won’t be in the usual situation of waiting forever for what you badly need: you can vote, influence, and exchange with other VIP users. Features are really usages, practices so it could also be an occasion to learn and co-create emergent practices. For a lifelong learner it’s a boon.
Get 5 hours of Bruno’s time just for you. It could be for getting peer to peer help, a specific change being done, a template added, a theme adapted, colors changed. You are the only judge of the use of it. If its shared and appreciated by the community your time is credited back.
I’m a questioner as well. I’m Bruno, the founder of RadialSoft Corp, the brain behind Kneaver, the little hand as well. I keep a blog tracing the history behind Kneaver, the research done, how the system makes progress. I’m @brunoWinck on Twitter and I will love answering your questions there. In his address Steve Jobs related the road on the picture to his experience of hitch-hiking. I’m a hitch-hiker as well, I travelled a lot. I share this on my personal blog. So yes, I’m a human and I stand for my product, you can count on me. If you have been reading me to here, we already share 3 values: curiosity, critical thinking and desire of independence. This is the reason you will find below a choice of plans, including a free plan on the far right.
I practice WOL, Working out loud. This is a video of me using Kneaver for documenting it. yes you guessed it all the site is build with it.
Hungry, Foolish but Careful
I think that being willing to measured risk is a proof of maturity. For me there are two risk involved in trusting RadialSoft for such critical part of us. let’s check them.
Things are clear here. Your space resides in a database separated from others. Spaces are grouped in small servers located in the cloud. They are behind anonymous URI and there is no option to access anything without a user and password. There are no public pages. We don’t go in your data, we don’t have to. Because your data reside in a private space we also keep separate logs. If you ever come to have a doubt we are open to share the logs with you. if your knowledge is super sensisitive there is an option to keep it on a dedicated server. I like this mention showing up when we log on our servers:
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
Everything inside Kneaver can be exported in multiple formats:
RDFs, the new format for Semantic Web, is our native format. It’s used by Google for freebase, by Facebook for the Knowledge Graph, by RSS, mails etc. It’s not very reabale but it can be reloaded in other systems.
HTML. We can produce a large HTML file with all your content. This can be done and sent to you by email everyday you changed something.
Evernote backup is not yet available but in our short term plans. With this feature, part of our “All included” plan you will have all the new cards saved as Notes in a special notebook. Existing cards are updated which is a major benefit over creating them again and again like an If Then That service would do. This is done real time. of course those notes cane be used normally, it’s not only a backup.
Again if you want to be on the very safe side from both privacy and backup point of view, an option is to have a server on the cloud directly under your responsability, we will manage it for you but you keep the keys and foot the bill. It’s deadly cheap, check.
Our selection of plans match many uses case. From the free fresher plan to team plan. We encourage you to sign for for the all included as it’s a long term bonanza deal for you and show your support for the concept.
