RocketAware Pilot Console

This is the console that gives you complete control over what you see first at RocketAware. This is an important part of the Rapid Knowledge Transfer design.

When seeking information, we start in the familiar places (personal experience, the office bookshelf) and then widen the search as needed. We select colleagues and friends who have particular interests and skills. Then our search progresses to libraries and other general information sources.

This console and RocketAware Orbits fit this time-saving behavior:
  • This console controls what you see first at RocketAware.
  • Use the piloted orbit closest to your changing needs.
  • Links on every category page expand or narrow the items seen.
  • Jump to external categories at Yahoo, dmoz, and other sites.

Tip: Don't change all of the defaults below. Just select the one or two items you want on the page above all others as "Show first." Eliminate one or two items you don't want to see with "Never Show", and finally mark one or two items as "Show"

Tip:Leave most of these as "Neutral", and the RocketAware software will probably do what you want.
