in reply to Work practices: log books, notes files...
Interesting .. however, my notes can go with me into a meeting and I can refer back to them at any time. I can discuss them with someone else in the kitchen. I can write stuff down while sitting at someone else's pod, and someone else can draw a picture on a page. For instance, I like block diagrams -- those are way too time-consuming to do in a text file. And if I need a common line history, I print it out and staple it to the appropriate page.
But -- to each his/her own. Use whatever works for you, I guess.
