I have been stewing on Chet's mail for a few days.

Yes, I need a new paradigm. It's fundamentally a matter
of organization. I know how to organize my projects,
my personal library, the time that I spend as a Girl
Guide leader, a bill of materials, my personal finances,
etc. It's time to extend the thinking.

(Notice the personal shift from IDEAS to rambling OPINIONS
--- Tim you are a bad influence and I think we should shun
you from this list....)

I know how to organize: words, paragraphs, pages, documents,
and suites of documents. I need to think instead in
terms of modules and custom-built "encyclopedias".
I need to store modules not chapters. And I need to change
my pre-pub checklist to include "assemble components".
Maybe this becomes so simple that it gets contracted out.
Maybe it's done in the virtual warehouse...

Maybe I have existing tools to support it.
