Worth thinking about how files are organized, and if geeks really had the best idea with hierarchical folders-in-folders. Having seen some people really struggle with the idea that the desktop wasn’t all there is, I can agree with his statements.
I don’t think I’ll stop using folders (as I actually like them how they are after building them over years), but I think I’ll have to give this a try and not keep leaning on dropdox as a crutch.
This is worth thinking about by librarians and others who have to deal with explaining how OPACs work to patrons and researchers. How simple can we go? How many levels is too many? What then do we need to change to adapt/match how people actually think?
