InfoSelect again?

James Fallows, writing in the Atlantic (July/August issue), takes up the cause of free-form information managers again, in the form of InfoSelect (once DOS Tornado Notes). I used to love Tornado. MS Outlook in its "notes" component, attempts to duplicate the MicroLogic features, but fails in most respects. Maybe it's time to reinstall InfoSelect and even upgrade to the latest version. There's something about free-form info that, when it's easily searchable, permits the emergence of patterns or new ways of looking at infobits not otherwise to be found.

I hope you did try InfoSelect again. There is nothing like it for keeping track of your bits and pieces of thoughts. It does indeed help you find patterns and synchronicities in your thinking that you might otherwise not have noticed.
I just wish they made a Mac version. The lack of that is the only thing keeping me from switching to Apple.
