“I am a squirrel”

Power knowledge worker Daniel Wessel calls himself “a squirrel”. He uses DEVONthink Pro Office to collect and organize everything from web pages to analog post cards. On his excellent web site Organizing Creativity Dan talks also about how he uses our flagship application:

Organizing CreativityWhy not simply use an OS X folder structure for everything? Among others, DEVONthink allows better (hierarchical) tagging, I have environments (databases) which limit the search automatically, I like the ‘Three Panes’ preview view, the ability to easily create replicates, including replicates of folders and files into the mobile sync folder.”

Read Digital Information Infrastructure with DEVONthink, and the follow-up article, Some DEVONthink Considerations and Issues. And there’s a lot more when you list all articles tagged “DEVONthink”.

    Not sure, but perhaps this posting ( http://www.organizingcreativity.com/2015/03/a-word-about-devonthinks-synching/ ) might be interesting for you. Even though you are human 😉 (Heck, so am I … I’m just digitally a squirrel)
