A daily newsletter of thank you notes about my life. [more inside]
Just a simple app to store and organize notes. Still very beta. Uses the browser's localStorage or google drive for note storage so you don't have to sign up for anything, or remember another username/password. If you have a minute, take a look, and let me know if you find anything that didn't work like you'd expect it to, of it you have ideas about how to make it more useful.
TakeNote is a virtual exhibition of historical notes--and note-like things--found in the collections of 13 Harvard University libraries, curated by leading scholars in the history of the book, and sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. The exhibition itself--available in a grid or sortable view--features downloadable high-resolution images, commenting, and tagging. There is also a selection of interpretive itineraries through the exhibit, written by experts in the field (excepting myself), and a bibliography of links and sources related to notetaking. The project is linked to the Take Note Conference, due to take place at Radcliffe (in Cambridge, Mass.) on Nov. 1st and 2nd. [more inside]
Marginalia is where I've been living for the past six months. It's a simple app for keeping notes and journals with one interesting twist: creating and appending to notes via email. If I have a random thought or idea on the go, I can just send an email to Marginalia and it'll automatically create a note. [more inside]
