comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
And talk about "tagging on steroids", have a look at DokuWiki's SubjectIndex plugin dokuwiki.org/plugin:subjectindex

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
I've been looking at DokuWiki recently in preference to PMwiki, as it stores all the "meta" stuff in a separate dirstruc from the items' content, which it leaves 100% untouched in the filesystem as plain text, and uses the dirstruc hierarchy for its "namespace" feature. You can manipulate (create/delete/edit/rename) the source files to your hearts content, tell DokuWiki to rebuild and badaboom badabing everything's back in your wiki (I don't use its history feature, have my text files under VCS anyway.)

Actually "tagging" is just good-old index terms, and in any reasonably complex topic domain, having a traditional hierarchy of term/sub-term is very helpful. The only newfangled tweak is finding a way to show the "backlinks" (what terms point to to this text), either inline, in the margins, bottom of the "page" etc.
