Planz to Put Our Digital Information in Its Place

Summary: Planz to Put Our Digital Information
in Its Place
Planz provides a single, integrative document-like
overlay to a folder hierarchy through the dynamic, on-
demand assembly of XML fragments. This overlay
provides a context in which to create or reference not
only files but also email messages, web pages and
informal notes. This paper describes an evaluation of
Planz over a period of several days during which
participants compared their experiences on two
projects one involving "status quo" methods, a
second project involving Planz. Also discussed is an
architecture that extends on the front-end to provide
additional overlays and on the back-end in support of
additional information stores. Work on Planz is guided
by a vision of "structural integrity": Many tools, many
modes of interaction applied to a common structure for
the organization of and access to personal information.
