I lost one of my little Moleskine notebooks today. On the way to the airport today I was summarizing my notes from two days of discussions and I must have left it in the back of the limo. I hope the driver finds it. It did make me painfully aware that these things are not part of my backup strategy.
I don’t like taking notes in a laptop during meetings, I find them distracting and I often make a little drawing, whether it’s class diagrams or geometrical sketches. But most of all, I like the tactile feel of a notebook and tightly written notes on gridded pages – leafing through one of those years later is a lot more fun than going through an old word document.
But in the future, I’m going to add them to my backup. Mozy and digital cameras FTW.
