Studies in Semicolons: On the habits, tools and technologies of doing idea work better
I've started a blog about the world of technology available for academics, researchers and other people who deal with ideas for a living. While there's plenty out there on technology for writers and programmers, I wanted to bring a special focus toward brainstorming, document management and notetaking. I'm gradually expanding into non-technology stuff as the blog grows and progresses.

The name, of course, is designed to operate on a bunch of levels. Semicolons are the punctuation mark that separates complete ideas. Semicolons are also used in TextExpander (and other snippet tools) to signal the beginning of a snippet shortcut. Studies in Semicolons in full is meant to be evocative of the artistic, haphazard process by which ideas are developed. Plus, I like alliteration, so there's that.
