Is Workflow natural - if so why is it hard?

Is Workflow natural - if so why is it hard?

After posting last night I sat and thought of some interesting ways to organize the flow of information in my life. It was a workflow problem but installing and learning a workflow product does not really excite me - assuming there is a good open source one. Considering other problems they too were workflow problems, is workflow something we all need? Is the ideal desktop metaphor, save, create context, organize,flow, publish,browse? How about we make the information self describing and separate the content from the description...So I have OpenOffice, Mozilla, XML Schema, etc, I just need an organizing tool (Lucene?)and a flow tool and all my information will be managed, or am I talking about the semantic web, and it already exists?
