>Introducing doingPad

The doingPad project (doing is pronounced "doyng") is about looking at ways to better capture (and then find again) all the little bits (and bigger bits) of information that inform our lives - the phone number quickly scribbled down on a post-it, the time of a movie, the address of that web site and the big idea we had while talking with that person we only just met.

Getting these thoughts into a laptop is often a challenge: the percieved cost of entry - openning up a file, typing in text, naming the file, saving it, then remembering where it is - is usually too high to make the capture worth while. Then try to find the file later - perhaps months later. What was it called? what was it about?

DoingPad is reconsidering:
