Knowledge, Learning, Community

My first thought was, do I do it this way? And, of course, I don't - my process is much too haphazard to be dignified with the term 'method'. But then I thought, what does the concept of a 'method' here imply? That there is a 'best' way to manage knowledge an information? Isn't that what we've learned there isn't? It's a pick-and-choose sort of thing: the way we manage information has a lot to do with the information, and a lot to do with who we are and what we want the information for. "categorizing', for example, is something I do only if my head is in a vise and I have no alternative - and even then, I use scripts to do it for me.
