The members of e-community are qualified on the partner basis (from whom he/she knows and where he/she passes the found knowledge). The knowledge is divided, not on the basis of organizational forms and standards. The organizational knowledge maps are mostly false inventories, as the stock -taking is possible only within the frameworks of other culture reliance. The Intelligent Portal contains artificial intelligence. First we use Doctus KBS shell to create knowledge-bases for particular decisions. Hard data are retrieved from databases and soft information from knowledge-bases. If we understand the matter of the web then we can use the interactivity to comprehend the new knowledge on the basis of Linux (free software) development conception. The easiest way to understand is to distinguish free pub-talk from free beer. Corporate University does not give away knowledge free, but we can freely talk about it or even modify it. This idea is based on following: everybody is free to access the knowledge shaped on the desk, to customize it, to spread either the customized or the desk-shaped knowledge. In the knowledge factory we realize the cooperation among experts on internet. Knowledge factory is more than a useful blend of newsgroup and forum.
