i was thinking about the Spotlight / Google method of file storage - rather than folders & subfolders, you just put files into broad categories (pictures, documents, music) and use spotlight to find what you want. i realize that i still kind of do it the old way, and keep shit on my desktop. i'm going to give it a shot the other way. the frustrating thing is that you still have to go into file properties to add tags to a file. it SHOULD give you a dialog to add tags at the moment the file is created.
