Looking for two web articles
So this has been bothering me for awhile, and I thought maybe a human search effort will bring me more luck than my failed Google attempts.
The first article I'm looking for is about non-hireachic filesystems, focusing on iCloud. The author talks about how humans are not capable of mastering tree structured archives. It might have made a connection between this comprehension and ability to think ahead while playing chess. In the piece, he (she?) talks about his move to iCloud, and how he structured it.
The second one is on the matter of organising to-do lists. I remember part of the story was to have 2 or 3 lists, one for urgent things and one for things further down the line. He (she?) then frequently moved things from the long term list to the short term one. I really wish I could tell you more, but that's about what I remember. An elegant solution on the matter of simple and effective organisation.
It is well possible that one or both of these articles have showed up on The Verge.
I'm counting on you!
