Besides using my email inbox as ‘my brain’ to remember things, I also have post-it notes all over, tons of filled up notebooks, a gazillion simple text files on my computer … and so on that hold all my various types of information. Stuff like: My designer network, FTP info, meeting notes, info about photo studios, headhunter information, restaurants in NYC etc. You get the idea. There must be some smart application out there that helps you organize all that. How do YOU organize all your ‘information’?
UPDATE: Just a few minutes after posting this entry I had two readers sharing their software recommendations! (Thank you so much!) Yojimbo sounded promising so I downloaded a trial copy and played around with it for the past hour – I am in heaven! This is e-x-a-c-t-l-y what I was looking for. It comes with a 2minute intro movie which explains the key functionalities. It’s super-easy to use, with a self-explanatory interface. YAY for software downloads! Check it out: Yojimbo! (Mac only!)
