Hipster PDA?

July 8th, 2008 by Bryan Bedell

The Shipshewana, IN, flea market is awash in unlicensed \"Git-R-Done\" merchandise.The phrase “Hipster PDA” has come up a few times now to describe FIELD NOTES, and we like that description, but it’s worth noting that the phrase was apparently coined by 43 Folders to describe a method for “Getting Things Done” involving 3″ x 5″ notecards. A later post at PigPog outlines a similar “GTD” method using a memo book, so let us humbly suggest that FIELD NOTES are perfectly suited for this purpose, and perhaps their smaller, more manageable size will help you limit your tasks to a reasonable level, and their subtle grid will help keep your margins and writing nicely aligned.

If you take pride in your disorganized stream-of-conscious scribblings, fear not, FIELD NOTES will work just fine for you, too!
