More Good Stuff from Our Readers

From Jennie, a link to an article with some more great reasons to favor paper over digital note-taking:

“The notebook has an immediate tactile advantage over phones: they aren’t connected to the Internet. It’s intimate in a way computers aren’t. A notebook has never interrupted me with a screen that says, “Wuz up?” Notebooks are easy to use without thinking. I know where I have everything I’ve written on-the-go over the last eight years: in the same stack. It’s easy to draw on paper. I don’t have to manage files and have yet to delete something important. The only way to “accidentally delete” something is to leave the notebook submerged in water.”

  1. Okay, now I really wish my campus had notebooks in their vending machines… we have scantrons, pens and pencils but no notebooks!
