Finding not Searching

Jeffrey Phillips writes:

what’s needed is a corporate taxonomy of tags and keywords to ensure that we aren’t creating new tags and keywords with every new document. Some structure is needed since we are creating so much new information all the time. Combining an information structure or hierarchy with the capability for tagging and using indexing search engines will provide a lot more search and find capability.

Then we’ll need to know not just what data was saved and in which format, but where the data was created and where it was saved. As thumb drives, read/write CD burners and other data transport mediums and location become available, we don’t want to search just our desktops, but any data store. So the hierarchy needs to include not just the tags and data sources, but also the time, date and store where the data was created and recorded.
