Are we so focused on input that we’ve overlooked the need to output information?

Prior to becoming involved with the content and information management industry, I spent several years in the high-volume printing industry. I was a mid-level executive for a large health insurance provider and was responsible for printing and mailing, pre-press and offset printing, and electronic book publishing across four states.

To Keep or Not to Keep - Questions to Ask During a File Share Cleanup Project

I thrived on organization—and took pride in setting up a new file structure in my trapper keeper for my upcoming classes. And when Sr. Bertha or Sr. Edwardine asked to see my notebook and folders, I delighted in sharing with them my well-kept trapper keeper—work in progress, completed, and notes per subject area. Basically, I was a nerd.
