Weblogs and Filing Cabinets

Dave Pollard thinks that Weblogs could be a mechanism to coherently codify and ‘publish’ the worker’s entire filing cabinet. But exactly what does that you? You end up with references to umpteen instances of umpteen versions of the same documents. It may be my document management background leaking through, but I think this really calls for a DMS integration.

The addition of a Document Management System would collapse those umpteen instances of umpteen versions into a coherent set of document references. Now, we can figure out which documents people are really using. And if we need to update them, then we can make sure that everyone is aware of the update.
