REAP: beyond search

Beyond Search is REAP [Retrieve, Extract, Arrange, Present]… Consider the typical information work flow of a professional:

  • Retrieve — collect information from a variety of sources
  • Extract — extract data, facts, examples
  • Arrange — arrange documents and facts for use now or later
  • Present — compose information into artifacts of value

Search is just about the retrieve and the -eaping is pretty much left to the person.
