Personal Information Baloney

22 Aug 2008 | | No Comment

Wow, if you look up personal information management (about as close as you’ll get to personal document management) on Wikipedia you’d be hard pressed to say that it’s easy to read with straight up lingo — or that it even makes much sense at all. In fact, even Wikipedia has a preface which states that,

“This article seem to speak in very vague, glittering generalities, and to contain quite a few business vogue-words…”

Well, ‘snap’, it seems it contain a cacophony of buzzwords — I’m glad I didn’t write it and I’d have to concur — I think it’s probably the first time I’ve ever heard the word ‘K-log’ -which I’m told is a knowledge log. Sounds to me a like a lot of bull-log…

But on the flip side, if you wiki document management systems, you’ll find a well written, and well described architecture of what is involved in a document management system, taking you through the entire cycle:

  1. Location
  2. Filing
  3. Retrieval
  4. Security
  5. Disaster Recover
  6. Retention Period
  7. Archiving
  8. Distribution
  9. Workflow
  10. Creation, and
  11. Authentication

Well referenced, and worth a read, — I wish I’d written that myself.
