I've just discovered a great website developed by the World Bank called YourNet. Its far from perfect but it is a great example of what can be done with an 'intranet' site. It reminds me a little bit of my own site but then that is clearly as it is a Lotus Domino based site and that brings to it a certain design attitude that encourages structure and cross-linking. Just look at how the site is described below. Love it!
YourNet was invented for Human Resources in the World Bank Group to help foster communication between business units, encourage community involvement, and share knowledge between HR professionals and their clients. There's no other product like it anywhere. And it came from HR.

YourNet is about KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT. It's about tapping into the wealth of learning and experiences inherent in every organization. KM means recognizing that every person in an organization contributes to the wealth of its knowledge; that every person is enhanced when that knowledge is shared.

I love their mission statement too: "Our Dream is a World Free of Poverty".

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
