"One of the comments suggests that re-finding can be more frustrating because we know it exists and because it is already part of a larger context of our work. It's just that we don't know how to use our tools to articulate context when we save something and when we look for it later."
I agree it’s not about keeping, it’s about using. But in order to use it we have to know that the resources exist so we develop strategies that will enable us to use that information. Keeping, is just a small part of it as is our use of tools that allow us to extend our capabilities.
When one uses a blog it tends to add meaning for the later use of information, allowing others to relate also with it. For me it’s not so much about keeping, it’s about living clues so when we need to use the information we are able to recall it, when need it.
