Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Re: Did he mention workflow?

When I hear Workflow, I think of Notes, which was the right way to do work flow. It didn't suffer from restricting information, but it made it easy for people to get down in software stuff they did with sheets of paper before. I constantly miss that sort of work flow where I am now (AOL); for years we've tried to manage things with email, which means people keep getting left out that should be in, and it means we don't have a repository of old information/discussions to refer to (since people are loath to use mailing lists once Big VPs get on it), and now they are trying to force everyone to document plans in giant ugly .doc files. Compared to either of these, a proper work-flow, which emphasises information sharing and empowerment of the people that have knowledge, would be a breath of fresh air.
