Haystack Project

Haystack Project

The Haystack Project is investigating approaches designed to let people manage their
information in ways that make the most sense to them. By removing arbitrary application-created
barriers, which handle only certain information “types” and relationships
as defined by the developer, we aim to let users define their most effective arrangements
and connections between views of information. Such personalization of information
management will dramatically improve everyone’s ability to find what they
need when they need it. We are currently exploring these ideas:

the universal information client - The
Haystack client
provides everyday information management capabilities such
as scheduling appointments, reading and creating email, and organizing photo albums.
It explores the bringing of information to a single location in order to let users'
focus on information instead of programs.
