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.

    Well, now that you mention it, I'm pretty good with emacs picture-mode too, but your point is taken that paper has it's own advantages. I'm not saying it doesn't.

    (I am not, for example, a PDA kind of guy: I've always got a moleskine in one side-pocket, and a slingshot in the other).
