Third, Malone suggests that on many occasions people are reluctant to file information away either because they cannot decide how to categorize it, or because they are not confident in their ability to retrieve it later. As a result, the compensating strategy is to pile documents around the office in relatively unstructured files. If one accepts this view, people do not allow their offices to become messy purely because they are slovenly, although this may well be a contributory factor. There is also a mismatch between what the person needs to do and the facility to do it.

On the other end of the scale, the Spatial Data Management System (Bolt, 1979) relies exclusively upon recognitionscanning strategies, and although unevaluated, it is hard to see how this could provide realistic support for the management of real information systems. Thinking in terms of this trade-off also suggests a general method of approaching the design of an information management system. A future system should be as near to an optimization of the two processes as possible: recall processes should allow the users to use whatever memory they have to 44 M.
