Overview

WE ARE ADRIFT IN A SEA OF INFORMATION. We need information to make good decisions, to get things done, to learn, and to gain better mastery of the world around us. But we do not always have good control of our information - not even in the "home waters" of an office or on the hard drive of a computer. Instead, information may be controlling us - keeping us from doing the things we need to do, getting us to waste money and precious time. The growth of available information, plus the technologies for its creation, storage, retrieval, distribution and use, is astonishing and sometimes bewildering. Can there be a similar growth in our understanding for how best to manage information and informational tools?

This book provides a comprehensive overview of personal information management (PIM) as both a study and a practice of the activities people do and need to be doing so that information can work for them in their daily lives.

Introductory chapters of Keeping Found Things Found: The Study and Practice of Personal Information Management provide an overview of PIM and a sense for its many facets. The next chapters look more closely at the essential challenges of PIM, including finding, keeping, organizing, maintaining, managing privacy, and managing information flow. The book also contains chapters on search, email, mobile PIM, web-based support, and other technologies relevant to PIM.

• Explores what good and better PIM looks like, and how to measure improvements
• Presents key questions to consider when evaluating any new PIM informational tools or systems

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
We swim in information: in our computers, inboxes, Facebook pages, smartphones, digital cameras, MP3 players, everywhere. It's out of control. Taking back control is both an art and a science. It's called "personal information management" People hear that term, and they think: Microsoft Outlook. No. We mean something broader. Deeper. More than getting organized or even improving productivity: These days, managing your information is managing your very reality.

Keeping Found Things Found is about all of that. It offers "best practice," "infomanagement" techniques drawn from the latest research. What to save (and where). What to throw away (and when). Which new tools are worth the trouble (and which aren't).

But also: How should you think about your information? Can you use it in richer ways? What does it mean for your life? What should it mean? Important questions, raised -- and often answered -- in a fascinating book. Bill Camarda, from the January 2008 Read Only

This landmark book provides detailed knowledge of behavior and technology that is essential for effective design and use of these productivity tools." — Jonathan Grudin, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research "This is an important book. Its theme is powerful and timely. The treatment combines keen observation, practical insight, and broad vision in way seldom seen." — Clayton Lewis, Professor of Computer Science, University of Colorado
