I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet.

If you use Bazaar, you might be interested in my book Bazaar Version Control. If you work a lot in the shell, you might be interested in my Time-Saving Tricks on the Command Line.

I make free Android apps like Programming Quiz, websites like bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff.

You can find me on Twitter as @janosgyerik or on my blog.

@DaveNewton I guess you're partly right. Yes, even if it's your own company which you know through and through, that doesn't mean you'll know the answer. I am mainly looking for the conventional wisdom of people with many years of experience working with IT systems, hopefully including SE clones. And in that sense your answer below is valuable to me, even though I'm dead set on doing this and you are against.

thanks for your insight! Yup, the question is not to help me decide. It is to help me estimate the success in advance. If success is unlikely (as you say), then maybe I should not go too boldly about promoting it in advance. Your answer helps, thanks!

Thank you, but you are not answering the question. I am not asking whether there is a better solution or not. I am asking about the expected impact of having an SE clone (in addition to whatever we may already have): positive or negative or strongly positive.

@Muz I think your comment could be an answer.

comment Will my workplace benefit from a stack exchange clone on the intranet?
Yes, an SE clone is really what I'm thinking of, NOT a forum. The idea is to get answers, not to discuss. Actually we are evaluating OSQA right now. Before releasing it widely, I would like to know what to expect, and if I can make a point with positive expectations. Hence the question ;-)
