Tribal Knowledge

Tribal Knowledge

a 100 word story

Jeff Hite

“I don’t understand what you mean. What is tribal knowledge?”
“It is a simple concept. One tribe of people, say in the jungle, learns something, but does not share it with the other tribes.”
“Why would they not share the information.”
“It does not matter, the point is they don’t. So say a flood happens and that tribe is wiped out. That information is gone forever. That is why we log everything, so that if something happens we have a record.”
“I believe I understand.”
“I am telling you HAL,” Dave said “tribal knowledge will kill us all some day.”
