scbwi-la-2011: taking all those notes

Another post in the GETTING READY FOR SCBWI-LA-2011 series

TAKING ALL THOSE NOTES

So in-between meeting the hell out of all of you and passing out business cards at SCBWI-LA-2011, there will be workshops/lectures/talks/salons/confabs. And I will need to take copious notes, as I have used up all my memory brain cells long, long ago in a galaxy far away.

I can’t go the old-fashioned route of pen and paper. My hand cramps. I’m too slow. My handwriting is just this side of an earthquake readout. *whine*

While I love my laptop, it weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. *double whine*

But I recently acquired a leetle gadget that I will already be carrying with me…

But gosh. The keyboard is small. If I were Freckles McYoungest, I would have the fastest thumbs in the West. But since I’m not, I will just make do with:

IS THIS THE SPIFFIEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN IN YOUR LIFE???

It’s a bluetooth mini-keyboard. You can sync it to your iPhone 4 with no need of a dongle. I got this Targus model at RadioShack for 39$$. Cheaper than buying a netbook, for sure.

I downloaded Pages from iTunes for 10$. You can make whole documents on your phone with this thing, then send it to your email in a Word document. (Or PDF, whatever.) OH THE HUMANITY.

That tiny little stand came with my iPhone case. I think I’m going to put some foam weather stripping on the end to keep my phone from sliding off.

Yeah. A Life Hack.

OH WHAT NOW.

BABY.
