Ok, I have this thing for technology, as you probably already know. I also have a serious thing for paper and pens and pencils. This you probably only know if you read a past posting about some wonderful paper organizational resources or if you have been by my "other" blog.
So, I like paper -- but, not just ANY paper. I like high-quality paper and beautiful bindings. I like Moleskine notebooks -- yeah, call me a snob. My hand-made, leather-bound journal (refillable) is from Oberon Designs. Even my business stationery and business cards are made from amazing paper. It's a tactile thing.
I like fountain pens (the really nice ones) and rollerballs made by Retro 51. I'm also uber picky about my pencils -- I like mechanical pencils and the only model I really like is a Titanium model (not pricey -- mine came from Walmart -- but it's the only one I've found that has a decent sized eraser, a smooth mechanism and will hold enough extra lead -- and it comes in purple!)
So being this way, imagine my glee when I found this blog (by one of my favorite bloggers) over at Creating Passionate Users, where Kathy Sierra sings the praises of her "moleskine PDA" and gives you all the details on how to set up a similar system yourself. (She prefers the reporter style, I like the classic notebook style).
If you are tired of swimming in the technology overflow in your life -- or if you suffer from the same paper/techno schizophrenia that I have to endure, you may enjoy reading this little gem. (She also offers a couple other great resources!)
