K-Web is mentioned by board member Jaron Lanier in response to a very interesting article by Danny Hillis in Edge Magazine http://www.edge.org/3rd_culture/hillis04/hillis04_index.html about a new learning tool Hillis calls the knowledge web.  Very smart people say smart stuff in response, so i highly recommend it.  HILLIS is currently Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Applied Minds, Inc., is best known for his innovative work in the design and implementation of the massively parallel supercomputer.
