  • Taking lecture notes on my eeeeee is better than taking pen-and-paper notes because:
    • My hand doesn't hurt afterwards
    • I take more notes
    • The notes I take are better
    • I'm more inclined to go through them and clean them up afterwards, because:
      • It is possible to clean them up without having to completely rewrite them
    • Cleaning them up means I reread them
    • Rereading them means I'm more likely to understand and remember them
    • I can be certain I'll be able to read them in the future
  • Also some stuff about Mary Wollstonecraft, John Stuart Mill* and Sojourner Truth, and the political situation they were operating in.
  • *...of his own free will, on half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

    Plato, they say, could stick it away. Half a crate of whisky every day...

    There are vastly worse things to be associated with.

    And I'm surprised you're not earworming "Aristotle, Aristotle" ;-)

    I get that earworm every time I shelve our Mill section...

    I think the Mill is specially earwormy, I have no idea why, though. Occasionally Descartes, but mainly Mill.

    Descartes is the one who triggers the earworm for me most often, I think. Or Kant.

    Heidegger (Heidegger) and Nietzsche for me.

    Wittgenstein over here, although Heidegger will do at a pinch to start it all off.

    An alternative to the earworm:

    John Stuart Mill,
    By a mighty effort of will,
    Overcame his natural bonhomie
    And wrote 'Principles of Political Economy'.

    The one about Sir Humphry Davy has been occasionally useful in quizzes.

    Well, okay, useful once. But still.

    Taking lecture notes on my eeeeee is better than taking pen-and-paper notes because

    Bleeee! Massive cognitive dissonance! Tech and lectures in the same place? No, no, no. That would be like Choppers and mobile phones. Or Corona and Kettle Chips.

    And herein lies the generation gap. My note taking shorthand is still faster than my typing :-)

    Eeee is pretty handy I've found, I've been using my eee to take notes from reading, since I can add the citations as I go along via endnote, and it's small enough to balance and type on my lap while simultaneously clutching a book.

    It's slow, (summat I'm doing in my own time rather than in a lecture) but probably quicker in the long term when it comes to writing up and collating refs.

    Do you have access to Microsoft Office Word 2007? (Perhaps via remote access from the Uni?) that has Endnote built into it - and damn handy it is too!

    Ah... the old eee on Linux! (I've bought a new tablet eee for drawing and study work and that arrived setup with XP. I gave my old eee to a Linux friendly person.)

    A chum of mine did install XP on his old eee and it seemed to work ok, he was certainly happy with his setup, though that might be more trouble than it's worth!
