Ask the Readers: How Do You Keep Notes?

By Jason Fitzpatrick on June 1st, 2011

Long after we’re out of formal schooling most of us are still keeping notes. This week we’re curious to see how you keep and organize your personal, work, and project notes.

Note taking has evolved quite a bit over the last few decades. While physical paper notes have remained a mainstay in note taking there are a wild array of options now for taking notes beyond the simple written page including word processors, web-based applications, tablets, even speech-to-text dictation. Whether you keep notes with a favorite pen on a plain old legal pad or your keep notes using cross-indexed and cloud-based snippets of text, we want to hear from you.

Sound off in the comments with your note taking system (the more detailed the better!) and then check back in on Friday to read the What You Said roundup.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
