Tacit Knowledge: Is It?

Tacit knowledge only appears simpleTo retain at least some of the information I'm bombarded with at work, I've created a tacit knowledge list. No one else may find these items useful, or they may already know them, but I find this stuff important. Since tacit is a term I've never looked up because its meaning seems discernable through context, I checked the definition.
 
Here's the Wikipedia take: "Tacit knowledge (as opposed to formal or explicit knowledge) is knowledge that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalizing it." I like that last part, that the knowledge is difficult to transfer, though I'm recording it. The Wikipedia contributor, who must be part philosopher, adds: "While tacit knowledge appears to be simple, it has far reaching consequences and is not widely understood." I can't help but agree. Thanks, WikiP, for validating the struggle.
