  • I've always liked to do pencil and paper design work. I am vaguely unsatisfied with it, though.

    For one, my hand writing is atrocious. I sometimes can't read what I've written later. Another is that I've never had a good Engineering Notebook discipline that allows me to save the best stuff for review later. The scraps always get lost and I inevitably find myself revisiting issues that I'd previously thought about and come to some conclusions about that I have to rediscover.

    I always felt like I'd be more productive if I had good, flexible, easy to use tools for sketching out ideas, annotating them, linking them to other documents, including Web documents and indexing them with keywords. Anybody using anything like this? Anybody using anything like this that's easy to use? I looked at Columbus [arup.com], but this is AutoCAD oriented. Maybe I could use the drawing package in Open Office for starters, but I'd need something to help organize.

    Maybe I do too much thinking about design and not enough design, though...
