This sounds like a very good first step to establishing a CMS (Content Management System). A CMS is a nice thing to have. It can make the "use" of ILM easier.<div>&nbsp;</div> An ILM Implementation for your iPod might look something like this:<div>&nbsp;</div> User Experience (UX), contributes to ROI:1) Which of your songs. albums, or playlists generate at least 80% of your listening enjoyment and "Well Being"?2) Which, should you lose them, will send you into darkness with no light at the end of the tunnel?<div>&nbsp;</div> TCO (Total Cost of Ownership):3) Which will be impossible to replace?4) Will any be too expensive to replace? a) [caveat] Factor in the time required to recapture the song. Need to determine your personal time worth. This is necessary to know in steps 11) and 12). 5) What is the Initial Purchase Price of each song?6) What is the total value of the 106GB of songs?7) Based on steps 5) and 6) what is the total value of the 60GB currently on theiPod?<div>&nbsp;</div> ROI (Return on Investment):8) If neither 1) nor 2) apply then there is no ROI.9) If either 1) or 2) or both apply then the ROI is at least your annual income. It could be more.10) If 8) is true (no ROI) then you have no need for ILM. Stop; Exit<div>&nbsp;</div> Processes:You only want to engage in these processes if the ROI/TCO ratio make it worth your while.11) How is the 60GB on the iPod maintained? a) All changed at one time? b) Selectively changed?12) What is the defined Migration process both ways? a) Add new selections b) Remove no longer wanted selections c) Create whole new 60GB set for iPod<div>&nbsp;</div> You have noticed that there are spinoff benefits from going through the process.We get valuable information necessary to using this Information with the IHA (Information High Availability), Information Integrity, Well-being Index, Findability (SFO-Search,Find,Obtain) and UX (User Experience).Findability is more than the SFO function. The SFO function is the main workhorse for Findability in my definition. Peter Morville, the author of Findability, has a different one since SFO doesn't exist except in my writings.
