Writing with a pen or pencil on a piece of paper is becoming an infrequent activity... Even a scrap of paper and a stub of a pencil are more preferable for philosophizing than typing the same words down, since writing a word out, letter by letter, is a more self-conscious process and one more likely to inspire further revisions and elaborations of that thought. The little notebooks are also very useful for copying or summarizing something one has read... Inevitably, anyone, including its owner, perusing through one of these notebooks years or even months later, is going to be puzzled or embarrassed by many of the entries...

"Whether you're headed back to school this fall or you just want a better way to keep your notes, memos, and other tidbits of information organized, you have a number of applications to choose from. Some of them just help you get your thoughts down quickly, others sync with online services that organize your notes for you. Here are, based on your nominations, the top five apps or services for the job." -- evernote, springpad, onenote, simplenote, pen(cil)+paper

"The method used in my research allows an interaction between art practice and theoretical discussions, such as those on the visual and tactile interpretation of materials. My research consists of three key components: (a) surveying literature, (b) making artifacts and reflecting on my own artistic experience, and (c) comparing with others’ artifacts and artistic experiences. These components have been employed rather simultaneously in my research process, influencing one another with the support of documentation that records my experience as I go through the process (see Figure 1).

"the contributors to “Field Notes on Science & Nature” have a purpose: to demonstrate the importance of the field journal in scientific study for younger generations of researchers, who receive less and less formal instruction in their graduate work in keeping and maintaining field notes. ...only through observing and recording fundamental data about a subject, he wrote, can we gain the basic knowledge we need to approach complicated problems like, for instance, conservation. At the heart of “Field Notes on Science & Nature” lie a few key questions: What kinds of notes should scientists take? How much detail should they record? What note formats work best? What can sketches and illustrations tell them about their subject? And how might these notes be used in the future?

The ideal record seems to include a mix of data in a structured format, such as tables or lists, coupled with free-flowing observational notes and sketches and maps of study locations"

"Ekphrasis is the graphic, often dramatic description of a visual work of art. In ancient times it referred to a description of any thing, person, or experience.... Nomenclature is a term that applies to either a list of names and/or terms, or to the system of principles, procedures and terms related to naming - which is the assigning of a word or phrase to a particular object or property.

And while I scoff at the idea of it now, it seemed a pretty good idea back then. Half the swatches came from typical sources like paint manufacturers, apparel catalogs, botanical guides, cosmetic companies, etc. The other half came from myself and a group of friends who made our own color identities ("ooo! this yellow is the color of my friend Karen's Labrador, let's name it after him")....they were all recorded and referenced in a 42 page catalog no one will ever find interesting but me. But that's Ok."

"...other note-taking and research database programs out there that might be better suited to the way you think, like to take notes, and organize your data. Circus Ponies Notebook is well regarded. Mind-mapping applications like NovaMind… MacJournaler or other journaling apps can be adapted for note taking… There’s Yojimbo, Voodoo Pad, Soho Notes, Omnioutliner, the more expensive Tinderbox for crazy hypertext note taking…I need something more powerful than a simple note taking tool, though. And this is where DTPO really excels. What I like about DTPO is its ability to organize information in a hierarchical notetree while also maintaining the flexibility to organize and access the information in freer form. Some people have no need for hierarchy, the but information anarchism doesn’t work for me. I like to visualize my sources in a way that reproduces their organization in the archive, for the primary stuff, as well as the thematic and narrative points they will later support. "

"Notation. Calculation and Form in the Arts
is dedicated to the multifaceted spectrum of artistic process existing between concept and work. The exhibition places works from all areas of art from 1900 until today in relation to one another: sign systems in literature, music, painting, choreography, architecture, photography, film and in media art....During the 20th century, artists have repeatedly made visible new realities through the connection between scientific calculation and artistic form. Morphic resonances, serial structures and sound waves... John Cage, Etiénne-Jules Marey and Walter Benjamin, Edgard Varèse and Iannis Xenakis, Mary Wigman and Robert Walser, Oskar Fischinger and Marcel Broodthaers, Allan McCollum and Mel Bochner, and Pierre Boulez: 20th century artists have designed fields of relations in notations, (in the words of György Ligeti) either as directions for play, as means of communication or as an autonomous work.
