  • One single slide may not be the best. It is overwhelming at best. Maybe a series of slides (each discussing different components of an idea) leading to a single slide with all the components intact in that.

  • Organizing information is really a big challenge. That is why recent ideas like folksonomy is really important and tools like and clipmarks are really a big innovation in information management.

    Perhaps another idea to consider in this respect is the idea of the piling and filing behavior of knowledge workers. Piling may look messy but there is a meaning in it. Messy desktops are not merely messy but rather represent the nature of ongoing projects.

    What about digital pilings. I get a headache whenever I take a look into the My Documents folder in my C: drive. A lot of pdf and word docs gets piled there. But one thing I know, those files are more alive then the files that I already sorted out in other folders. The other folders sometimes just get lost and I forgot that they even exist.

    As I said earlier, managing information is really hard.
