all the joys of accountability

09 Apr

I was rather amused to come across the following data-classifications in one of my recent BCS magazines.

It seems to me that obsolete data can be categorised:

  1. Things that must be kept by law;
  2. Things that must be destroyed by law;
  3. Things that we choose to keep;
  4. Things that we are certain can be thrown away;
  5. Things that we would like to keep if we have room;
  6. Things that we would like to throw away, but are not sure about;
  7. Things that we think we have kept but cannot find;
  8. Things that we have kept but now cannot decipher;
  9. Things that we have not kept, but now wish that we had.

In particular, No. 7 is a classic ;-)…

I think the categories reflect normal life just as much as anything computer-related, but those dear electronic boxes do exasperate the problem to a higher level of headache!
