XooML: XML in Support of Many Tools Working on a Single Organization of Personal Information
MetadataShow full item record
XooML takes a step towards addressing a basic tension in the development of supporting tools of Personal Information Man-agement (PIM) and, more generally, in the development of com-puter-based tools for end users: How to innovate without forcing people to re-organize or re-locate their information?. Seven con-siderations in the design of a XooML schema follow from expe-riences in the iterative evaluation and development of a Planz prototype. Considerations take aim on a vision of PIM: One, inte-grative structure for the organization of personal information; many tools in support of this structure, its creation and its life-long development.
