Good Ol’ Organization is Still Pretty Good

I think the search engine is an amazing invention that has progressed to be so useful as to change the way society uses facts and knowledge. That said, no matter how amazing the search engine becomes, I’ll always be a fan of good old fashioned organization.
The new Mac operating system will be able to search your entire computer in moments and Microsoft is not far behind. Gmail thinks that nothing should ever be discarded, it’s too easy to search it later. Amazon prefers that you just search for something instead of using a menu hierarchy to browse.
Search is very useful, but let’s not get carried away (it’s not going to help you find your shoes). Organization is still a great way to keep things findable, and it only complements search.
