If you're a lifelong learner, there are many sources of knowledge to satisfy your curiosity. There are things you need to know (taxes, insurance); things you should know (civics, economics, law) and things you'd just like to know more about. Yet most of this information is buried in forms and structures that make it hard to take in. You may need to take an entire course to learn something relatively specific or watch an entire video series yet still only learn a part of what you hoped to discover. The knowledge smorgasbord is an attempt to characterize sources of knowledge in more descriptive ways than current taxonomies do, so that not only content is captured, but also formats and especially how these sources can be integrated with others for various purposes.
