Does anyone use a Wiki to organize their digital data?
I tried to use one as a GTD planner but it couldn't move fast enough (for my needs). However, I'm finding it's a great way to organize a lot of digital information because I can link to documents, websites, videos, etc., and also insert images, etc., as needed. I can then store my digital general reference stuff in the file folder with the most direct name ("Diesel engine modifications" or "My car--maintenance schedule") and still find that data under a more general Cars heading.
There are many wikis out there, some of which can be made portable (carry on a USB stick). I use Ubuntu (Linux) instead of Windows, and use Zim, which is a WYSIWYG wiki that moves fast, however, I have also tried MoinMoin, Tiddlywiki, Mediawiki, and Dokuwiki (also Dokuwiki on a stick).
If you have a particular interest in cars or gardening or whatever, it can make it much easier to find the information you're looking for! Between a wiki and Google Desktop, I can find everything very quickly.
Curious to hear what others have tried...
