A semantic file system
- Tag your data
- Organise your thoughts
- Control your files
Insight is a new file system currently in development. It aims to revolutionise the way everybody thinks about files.
People tend to think about some objects (like files) based on information about them rather than names. Take photos, for example. You might choose to organise them by:
Wouldn't it be great if you could organise your photos in all of these ways at once, then choose exactly how you see them based on what you're looking for?
All these things (and more) are possible with Insight.
Insight is still under development at the moment and no public prototype exists, but there will be regular updates on the author's blog. If you don't fancy that, the final report is available to give you a taste of what the project is about.
