Network organisations provide knowledge workers collaborating on reaching a common goal with some computer-mediated communication facility, linking them across boundaries to interact and exchange information. The most popular is email – combining simple textual messaging with a possibility to disseminate attachments with just one click to one or multiple workers, and natural support for asynchronous work – enabling collaborators to respond any time after receiving a message and to copy or archive messages for further use. Attachments enable collaborators to exchange documents in any format, and practically of any size (if a document exceeds a size limit its URL may be sent instead).

The MENAID project researches new document architectures to reduce excessive e-mail messaging, save time of knowledge workers, reduce operational costs of knowledge organisations and rationalise their information flow.
