As a UI guy I've used a book/notepad to write down my meeting notes, design ideas, things to include in usability tests, etc. My process has been to go back to these notes to remind myself of my thoughts and in the past since I've normally been a department of one this has served me pretty well. The biggest problem I've had in the past is that I've lost track of some of these ideas because my notebook isn't really a great way to file or order my ideas since I took the notes in chronological order so going back a month later to find an idea I had for a new widget can sometimes be difficult to do. So what I'm toying with is using a blog with tagging to replace my notebook. I think the tags will allow me to organise and find my ideas a little better when I need to go back to them as well as I'm now working with team members who are remote so including snapshots of the whiteboard from meetings into the blog entries is also going to be beneficial. I'm just wondering how others
have done it. I know I could try and do a full blown intranet site with a pages for each entry and incorporate tagging there but a blog seems so much less work. Comments, opinions?
