Imagine a small app, that you somehow share to all collegues and convince them to install ; Then you configure a list of "Topics" and each one can decide to subscribe to a topic. If someone posts a question/discussion about a topic that gets broadcasted to all list of subscribers who see a Tray notification. they can click the icon and reply in real time.

Just something additional to think about, not directly a verdict; the experience below is based on a single company, and others will react in a different way.
 
We tried something similar at a previous employer; we used email - it's quite easy to select the intended recipients, and the infrastructure was already there. Popups were provided by Outlook and/or the Messenger service. Sounded like a great idea, but it ended a disaster.
 
What happened is that some of the devs answered "immediately", or that the manager came in when answering "took to long". The popup was distracting, and responsibility for features or problems was moved using the system. Within two days, I routed the mails to a label, only looking at them during a lunchbreak or whenever I refilled the coffee. Killed the mobile phone, closed the door, gained back my productivity. The tray-icon nowadays does not even show the virus-scanner; I've had it with software that yanks me out of flow by stealing the focus.
 
I've often longed for software where we could "share" knowledge internally, and where people can participate in discussions. From my previous experience, I'd rather go for an internally hosted blog, and have people participate voluntarily, when it suits them.
 
To be fair; it was not the technology that made it a disaster, only the way we used it. It could have worked, if the mails would be treated the way we treated the mails from the bugreporting-system.
