All existing communication and collaboration tools display messages chronologically and in a linear way making a context fragmented and difficult to comprehend.
Rizzoma allows communication within a certain context permitting a chat to instantly become a document where topics of a discussion organized into branches of mind-map diagram and minor details are collapsed to avoid distraction.
Collaborative power arises from a group's communication, but gathering important information from emails, chats and discussion threads to a corporate wiki system can be frustrating.
By using threaded communication in Rizzoma you can consolidate new information right in the context.
Unlike project management or task management services requiring role specification, access rights and document flow rules, Rizzoma, with no special business rules and access restrictions, suits flexible agile teams with irregular decision making and allows every team member to edit a message or manage a project.
Communication and knowledge sharing are call of the times for contemporary education and research.
Read how Rizzoma suits it.

The thing is that you are writing and creating a document, dialogue, etc *together*, where all are responsible and part in what is happening, and where order appears out of increasing effort and inputs.

Self-organisation - one of the most beautiful phenomena there is :)
