Effective knowledge sharing between communities of knowledge workers impacts the productivity, innovation and competitiveness of organizations. The emergence of Peer-to-peer (P2P) technology has provided some solutions to knowledge sharing amongst peers. In this paper we present a sophisticated an Agent-based Semantic Knowledge network—ASKnet—that features a unique combination of mobile agents, semantic web and semantic overlay networks to realize an effective knowledge sharing environment. ASKnet enables the sharing of personalized knowledge repositories—typically documents thematically organized by a knowledge worker—of individual knowledge workers with the entire community. The premise here is that if we trust the intellectual ability of the knowledge worker then his/her personalized knowledge repository can be regarded as a source of best-quality, relevant and validated knowledge for that domain/organization.
