In this paper we present a pragmatic development approach for knowledge sharing applications that encompasses both design and software engineering aspects. It starts from scenarios and leads to patterns that help application developers and user interface designers on the one hand to separate relevant content from unimportant data and on the other hand propose techniques for qualitatively structuring knowledge management and knowledge sharing tasks for enterprises and individuals.
