Research reporting with Tinderbox

Lisa Firke discusses a research summary in the form of a Tinderbox document.

Another Tinderbox feature that was important in this case was the fact that I didn't have to determine the structure--the outline--before I'd done the research. I could begin to gather information willy nilly and with confidence that I could order and organize it all later, with a minimum of fuss. In this case I attempted to illustrate the trajectory of my brainstorming on the topic while at the same time compartmentalizing the different tangents.

Another nice touch: an agent that scans the 20,000 word document and creates an instantly-updated, dynamic index of all the notes that contain picture.
