I suppose what I’m advocating is some kind of an intelligent innovation model where users’ experiences are directly fed back into some kind of a knowledge base that is fully integrated with the software itself, so interesting ideas about how to use the software productively are readily available, rather than having to wade through online knowledge databases or lurk in user forums (not that I don’t enjoy lurking here :). It would be just quicker if the software offered some intelligent solutions that are specific to the problem.
