Codafile: IA for paper
I try to keep away from random bits paper as much as possible, but there is often no avoiding it. Often paper must be kept for legal reasons, and there is no easy way to revise or annotate PDFs, though someone has come out with a buggy software to do that on tablet PCs. I have been intrigued with a system developed known as Codafile, which is big in Australia and New Zealand. It allows one to scan the file labels through a color-coded system. They also produce an interesting range of folders to accommodate all kinds of print and other matter. Records management is a dreary topic, but it is nice to see it treated colorfully.
