About PIM

PIM stands for Personal Information Management which studies how people manage their information in the real and digital world(s). It is an interdisciplinary study combining Human Computer Interaction (HCI), cognitive psychology, knowledge management, information retrieval and others. It has attracted several researches who try to understand how people acquire, organize, archive and retrieve their personal information and who try to design new tools to help us manage information in more "natural" and humane way.

To learn more about PIM please visit the Resource page for Personal Information Management.

About the blog

I started a blog in '99 which was alive for more than 6 years. Than the server's hard drive failed in giving out bits and that was the end of the blog as well. I had an old backup but in 4 years I haven't had time (and wish) to put it up again.

I have started this blog in 2009. Public posts include news and thoughts about PIM software, PIM papers software, design of interesting/disappointing digital and physical interfaces, some programming hints, software hints, and my DIY projects.

 

About restrictions on commenting

There are certain words that are not allowed to be entered in the comments on the site. I don't have time to moderate all the comments and trackbacks. So if anyone wants to write about any imaginable p***s enlarging drug, perverted s*x, mortgage ... please use asterisks or the comment will get rejected automatically. Also certain home pages (sex related sites, facebook profiles) in the comments form are forbidden (popular in spam apparently). And I had to disable direct comments through RSS readers :/.
