From the department of nonsense: Use Word's Outline View as a Nested Personal Wiki. "Rather than keep multiple files, to-do lists, and longer notes on something coming up, consider using a Word file in the "Outline View" to create a nested, expandable personal wiki-style organizer."
I get that it is one file. I also get that this one file is an outline (which has collapsible and expandable levels, as all outliners do). I also get the personal and expandable part.
I don't get what would make this a "wiki -style organizer." This characteisation of a simple word outline amounts to willful obfuscation. It has absolutely nothing to do with a wiki. This in itself does not make it a bad idea. Just as a car might not be a bad idea, calling it a "boat" certainly is.
I like outliners and I like wikis. I am very interested in how they can (or cannot) be combined. This entry says absolutely nothing about this issue—or anything that would be intrinsically interesting to anyone. Doesn't everyone already know that the MS-Word Outline, like any outliner, can be used for to-do lists, and longer notes? and why use MS-Word's clunky outlining feature at that?
