On Personal Information Management

This Threadwatch post offers info and links about the Keeping Found things Found (KFTF) research project from the University of Washington’s Information School.

The project itself isn’t new, in fact I blogged a about KFTF last February. Nevertheless, if you still haven’t taken a look at project’s ongoing research about how people save, store, organize information (personal information management) including what they find on the web, it’s more than worthy of your attention. They’ve added a bunch of new content to the site since last February. If you’re looking for more info and how the research is being used, this Seattle Times article offers a good overview.
