For those of you that have seen the walls of my office space, the first thing you will probably notice are my Post-it Self-Stick Wall Pads with numerous ideas and diagrams (some clear and some still in “ideavelopment”). Now I am not talking about your run of the mill 3M Post-it notes here (although I am a big fan of the 4×6 variety for brainstorming exercises and story cards). A few years ago, 3M released self stick 20×23 wall pads. They work just like your typical post-it notes in that they stick to everything fairly well without leaving any residue or bleed through. They go nicely hand in hand with my other favourite office product the Sharpie (as someone with a pretty large racing autograph collection, never ever trust a non-Sharpie – the cost savings is just not worth the loss in quality).
You have likely come across multiple white boards that are stained with past notes or worse permanent markers. Now, as you may know from my previous post, I am a fan of the 3M Wall Pads so I tend to do most of my writing on them instead of white boards. However, we have all come across the dreaded permanent marker mistake at some point. It is surprising however, how few people know how easy it is to deal with this. Especially when it comes to a permanent marker on a dry board (my thanks to Owen for teaching me this one).
In March 2009, I decided to start up my own Blog using WordPress and Micro-Blog using Twitter. The framework for “My Thoughts Enclosed…” started to take shape.
I posted my first Blog Entry “Post-it® Self-Stick Wall Pads: A Non-Technical Improvement on the Traditional White Board” on Mar 24, 2009 @ 15:32quickly followed by a second “When Sharpie Meets White Board” on Mar 24, 2009 @ 16:16.
@RLavigne42 posted its first Tweet at 10:16 AM Mar 24th. At the time, my twitter account was set to private. It would be months before I would become comfortable having my Twitter feed public. Over 7000 Tweets later, I look back at this first ent ry with deep emotions.
It was during this referenced interview that I totally impressed the CEO of the company with my vision of using Social Web as a business tool.
Had an amazing first interview with the CFO of a confidential job prospect on Friday. Simple nailed the interview IMHO.10:16 AM Mar 24th
What is OneNote?
OneNote is an electronic version of a paper notebook where you can write down notes, thoughts, ideas, scribbles, reminders, and all kinds of other information. Unlike the traditional document formats used by other programs such as word-processing or spreadsheet programs, OneNote offers a free-form canvas where you can type, write, or draw notes in the form of text, graphics, and images wherever and however you want them.
Unlike notes in a paper notebook, OneNote lets you add, move, and delete anything on its pages and in its sections. You can add more space where and when you need it, and you can stay organized by dragging note items into their own sections or even into multiple notebooks. You can separate and organize your notes by subjects or projects, or keep separate notebooks for different places and interests.
