Plinky asked do I prefer to write notes on paper or on an electronic device. I think it depends on the situation. I correspond all the time with people via email, twitter and facebook and I have done my share of blogging and electronic journaling, but there are some times when I just need to write things down on paper. I’m a big fan of to do lists and post it notes. I suppose I could save some trees and do those lists on a device, but I guess old habits die hard. If I find myself having a hard time grasping concepts, I’ll whip out a notebook and write things down. Sometimes it helps me to remember things and work out problems. My kids are much bigger fans of computer use and communication. Sometimes I think it is a sad thing because of the ways it has helped me express myself, but maybe this is a part of progress. Sigh.
