  Outliner use patterns

Ted Goranson, Outliner Use Patterns [via Mark Bernstein]

Outlining is a feature rather than an application category. Actually, it is a collection of features that we have been surveying the last couple of months. The idea behind that survey was to help you decide on the best marriage of mind and tool for your particular outliner. This month we turn to all the various things that people use outliners for. Between the two, the "what" of features, and the "for" of use patterns, you should be able to characterize the applications we'll review in due time. Then you can select your own particular outliner(s).

[...]The four main use patterns -- those that have several products that target them -- are: long document generation (with some variants); notetaking, scrapbooking and journaling (that's one category with these three functions); snippet management; and list management, including to-do lists.

It's part of a series, other pieces include: Outliner History,  Outliner Features-Part 1Outliner Features-Part 2.
