In reply to: Announcing Stack Overflow for Teams – Joel on Software

Quick background: every development team since the beginning of time has been trying to figure out how to get institutional knowledge out of people’s heads and into written, searchable form where everyone can find it. Like new members of the team. And old members of the team working on new parts of the code. And people who forgot what they did three years ago and now have questions about their own code.

I like this idea a heap! I’ve set up a few systems to help manage institutional memory, and never found something that works for everyone. I don’t think this is the proverbial silver bullet, but it looks like a good solution for technical and dev. teams.
