Matt Cleaver’s Ultimate Ubiquitous Capture Device


Sometimes the best technology is the simplest. Here's Matt Cleaver's take:

"….there are times when you just have to capture an idea
on-the-spot, and the most convenient way to do it at that particular

  1. Matt Cleaver ia absolutely right and not alone. I carry these small notebooks on my hikes (I am a hiker) and write email addresses of people I meet on these long hikes, if I think we can be friends, and give them my email address on the conveniently perforated pages. I also carry few extras to give to some of these people to get introduce them to the wonderful world of Moleskine. Also enter pointers as reminders so that when I return I can enter a detailed log with photos in my “mother” Moleskine large note book.

  2. I use a Moleskine for day-to-day notes and journaling, but for times when I don’t have that, I tend to shoot myself a quick e-mail on the Crackberry. Like your iPhone, I always have it with me, so it’s always a quick way to jot myself a note. Later I’ll process it into RTM when I go through my inbox. Perhaps some day my company will adopt iPhones over Blackberries!
