Kevin wanted suggestions on categorizing and accessing chunkettes of
information. I've delayed replying because our solution is so low-tech.
Here is what we do (very basic, but free and requires almost no time):

1. For each project or type of information, start a Word file to contain
the info chunkettes. Put it on a shared network drive. Include a table of

2. You and your new writer can copy all useful chunkettes from e-mail or
wherever, and paste them in the appropriate word file, under its own
heading that appears in the table of contents.

3. Set up a group on each writer's desktop with a shortcut to each Word
info file.

This works great for reference material. For things that require action, I
keep an Excel spreadsheet with reminders, dates, and references to Word
files that contains the full information.
