Review:

"Keeping Found Things Found is the missing manual for 21st century literacy. We're at the epicenter of a rapidly expanding universe of personal information. Books, music, photos, videos, email, contacts, calendars, wills, bills, records, and receipts: how can we keep our piles and files from spiraling out of control? William Jones has the answer in this important book about finding our memories and organizing our lives. A must- read for designers, developers, librarians, and anyone else who cares about the future of information interaction." --Peter Morville, Author of Ambient Findability and Information Architecture for the World Wide Web
