Just a Few More Apple Posts Left

to meet my yearly quota. Thanks Apple and Intel!

Anywho, here's an interesting thought on the
shifting paradigm of file organization. Due to better search technologies, like Apple's Spotlight and Google's Desktop Search you can make a pretty good argument that filing documents away in client or matter specific folders will become obsolete. As processors and I/O subsystems get faster and hard drive space gets cheaper, indexing file meta-data becomes a much better way to "organize" files than manual filing. And searching for a document in Spotlight becomes a lot easier than drilling down folders.
