Google Notebook

posted in: Tech | 2

So I’ve moved on from the Wiki on thumb drive solution for my to-do lists. The first place I’m giving a try-out to is Google Notebook. So far, so good.

I don’t really like the fact that I can’t link different sections together through hyperlinks, like I could with the Wiki, but that is somewhat overcome by all of the sections being one click away in the Notebooks list on the right.

I do like the fact that I can add Notebook to my Google home page and instantly see what’s going on, though I wish I could customize that so that it didn’t minimize all the notebooks every time I load the home page. I’d like to leave my main To-Do list viewable on load. Ah it’s only one click to expand it, but still. That’s one more than it needs to be! 🙂

    Interesting. I was starting to get into the idea of a carry-around wiki, just hadn’t gotten around to figure it out. Did you find a doc somewhere on how to do that?

    Steven, I was using a GTD version of Tiddlywiki, which is about the simplest Wiki out there, it’s one html page. Just keep that page on a thumb drive and you’re good to go. I enjoyed that but I find myself working on so many different machines, in different places, sometimes without my thumb drive on me, that I just decided I needed to do something online.
