I must admit that even though I have a Windows Mobile Smart Phone (yeah right), I use it mostly as a MP3 player for when I’m taking walks or as a low quality camera. Yes I think I have signed up for and have used just about every productivity application known to mankind…but in the long run what I really use to get things done is my Moleskine Planner and a Moleskine Journal for Mindmaps and ubiquitous capture. Somebody actually gave me a free copy of a Mindmapping application, but its just easier for me to reach down into my bag, grab my journal and let it fly. Is there a growing movement amongst the information technologists back to pen and paper?
Can a web worker whose job is exclusively computer-based really be comfortable using paper to organise themselves? Yes! Just because you work in a restaurant, it doesn’t mean you have to eat there too. In the same way, a web worker doesn’t have to solve all their problems using the web. In fact, I think it’s a bad idea to try! (via putting things off)
