Extending the concept of tags/tagging to the desktop:
Marc Stein is the co-founder of tag2find. They are based in Linz, Upper Austria. Marc studied Software Engineering for Medicine in Hagenberg.
Tagging is a much more simple way of organizing your data compared to traditional hierarchical folder systems. In that, you will never need to restructure your desktop organization if your priorities change or if company structures change. A tagged file is always at the right spot as its “position” is defined by its content and the tags used and not by being put in a certain folder.
And by avoiding troubles, I am referring to finding old files can be an adventure, especially if other users are involved. In hierarchical systems, you have to know the specific structure of the desktop to efficiently search files. In a tagging environment, you do not have to think about structures. And your colleagues will love you for that.
