Frog has discussed "collective instinct" in us for making collection of things and thoughts. Understanding this collective mind of users and related underlying "meaningful stories" of ordering ideas and information is definitely helpful for designers because "we are responsible for understanding users’ extant relationships to information and ideas". In the end of the article it is concluded that the act of collecting is "an unspoken language that narrates one person’s unique relation to the world". I guess it is one of the best and practical ways to design user-centredly.
