Search, not sort

There was a time when we organized phone numbers in an indexed phone book. Then there was a time we scrolled to locate contacts on our phone. Not anymore. Now we search.

Search is more efficient than sort. Beyond certain thresholds, the effort needed to organize and retrieve information far outstrips the effort needed to search.

Don't organize digital files to folders or bookmark information. Search for information on a just in time basis. A key 21st century skill.
