Storing and Finding

The question in filing or storing material is not, “Where do I put it?”
It should be “Where do I find it?”

You can have the most sophisticated storage systems available, but if you don’t know where to find what’s inside, you’re no better off than having stacks of stuff all over the place.

One of the underlying principles of knowledge management is the sharing of material (i.e. information). As we break down the barriers to sharing, we need to break down the barriers to finding. We need to avoid replacing silos of information with silos of searching.
