ReCon allows you to create, view, search, and publish information about any topic. The output from ReCon is what we call a Body of Knowledge, or BOK for short. A Body of Knowledge can contain a variety of information, from simple fields on a form, such as name or address, to rich-text (like Microsoft Word), Web links, Web pages, grids, images, even audio and video. You can also attach files to a record, such as spreadsheets, PDF files, Office documents, text files; any kind of document or file you need.
ReCon is a tool for doing Internet-based research, as well as traditional research, compiling information from sources such as magazines and books. A BOK, regardless of its contents, is a single file that can easily be saved, copied, emailed, burned onto a CD, placed on a Web site; anything you can do with a normal file. BOK's can be created for personal use, shared temporarily with friends and family, and published/sold for fame and fortune.
