I subscribe to a number of woodworking blogs and magazines, and browse websites like lumberjocks. I end up with a lot of tips or projects I want to keep track of. I use Evernote to keep track of the good ideas I come across. It is a place to keep and organize a number of things like pictures, websites, notes, and whatnot.
It is integrated in my browser so when I find a site with info I want to keep track of, it will save the site with tags and notes. I can take pictures with my phone of magazines to keep track of where the articles are located (which season of wood magazine was that one jig in?). You can take pictures of projects and doodle on them to add notes about lessons learned in a process. For example I can capture all the steps of my dovetail jig.
These are all kept in the cloud and can be accessed from computer, phone or tablet. It keeps all my disperate ideas together, tagged, and organized. Does anyone else use this?
