Think Better Than Steven Johnson
Writers, researchers and all the rest of us information saturated, multi-tasking individuals should follow Steven Johnson's lead on how to best organize one's thoughts. Steven is an extremely prolific and successful writer. He is the author of several excellent books like Mind Wide Open, a monthly columnist for Discover magazine as well as a being a guest blogger here on Brain Waves.
In last Sunday's Times Book Review he revealed the research system software package he has been using for the past few years, called DevonThink. From Steven's blog, Tool for Thought:
"I've used the tool for exploring the couple thousand notes and quotations that I've assembled over the past decade -- along with the text of finished essays and books. I suspect there will be a number of you curious about the technical details, so I've put together a little overview here, along with some specific observations. For starters, though, go read the essay and then come back once you've got an overview."
If you are interested in what other people are saying about the tool, I recommend the following links: John Battelle's SearchBlog, Auxiliary Memory, Jots, and Geek. I'm about to purchase it and will let you know in a few months how well it is working for me.
