I am doing summer research at UC Berkeley this summer.
We are working on a project that involves organizing information intended
on go on a web site. So far we have been concentrating on a technique that
uses post-it notes to write down chunks of information. We group related
post-its and label these new groups according to what common theme is found
within the group. Then we look at possible larger groupings made up of these
smaller groups. We label the new groups. The result is a loose hierarchical
structure. What I would like to know is whether this is a common method used
or if there are any other methods to organize information chunks?
