A personal journey in information management (contd.)

Reference information and visibility

Organizing reference information is a good candidate for storing in Topicscape.

On the left below is what used to be my own personal IT reference material as it looks in folders.  The need to open folders, to see what sub-folders are there, gets in the way of visibility - seeing what is available and where it is.

On the right above is the same material in Topicscape. A single click with the Shift key held down allows for an instant zoom in and return to the area around any topic (cone).

How did this work for research projects? ⇒
