Personal Knowledge Management

Dave Pollard’s on going discussion of howpersonal knowledge management should work…by duplicating much of how we shuffle papers and interact with our physical environment.

I frequently search my blog for links and resources. Better structure, filing, and cross-platform (i.e. functionality independent of opening a particular software tool as Dave proposes) are great for “right now” work…but most of my content is “back then”. I need a better “now” work environment…but more importantly, greater direct (not hierarchical) access to previous content.
