E-mail messages and other documents such as those in Notes, SharePoint, or Weblogs are fed into ActiveNet and are organized into topical "hotlists" that drive a supply-and-demand market for contacts and information. The topics in your public profile define a supply of expertise in those areas; other users who construct similar profiles create a demand; the system offers to connect those whose profiles intersect."
