Great podcast and great tips - thanks guys!

Although somewhat breaking the "no typing" rule, I used to type some notes during meetings, while the notes were projected on the screen. as a summary for meetings. It really helped focus the attendees on the subject, while getting their feedback and approval on the notes themselves. Like Mike said, we should use technology where it makes sense.

Does anyone have an idea why the Cornell template spread the way it does? As a Hebrew writer, the page layout makes sense to me in a right-to-left direction. I wonder why the Memory Area is on the left, rather than on the right.

Because if you read from left-to-right, you'll see the stuff on the left first. You can scan that left-hand-side, and only read the stuff on the right if you need more information.

So to use the form in Hebrew, you'd have to switch the Memory Area to the [b]right[/b].

M & M mentioned Levenger paper in the cast. I agree that quality paper is a nice treat. If you are going to print out your own Cornell templates, try HP 32 lb premium laser jet paper. You'll be amazed how different your pen feels.
I'm a huge fan of Rhodia notebooks though they don't come in Cornell template form, Great paper! I get mine at http://www.vickerey.com/rhodia-classic.html Clairefontaine notebooks are also considered very good.

Alas, as much as Moleskines have become the iPod's of notebooks, I don't find the paper quality to be anything to write home about.

Oh, and don't get me started on fountain pens. :)
