Why didn’t I realize this sooner?


Just a tip for today. I don’t know why I haven’t mentioned this before but this past week I have been using my Windows Phone to take tons of photos. I’ve been adding them straight to OneNote since they have been work related – mostly whiteboards full of planning information or similar.

I do not know why I did not start doing this long ago. Too often I would take a laptop with me to a meeting and type in notes as people were talking or writing on the whiteboard. Essentially, I was just copying the information from the board to a OneNote page. Once I realized I could just photograph the board and throw it into OneNote, I started doing this all over the place.

I wish I would have figured this out long ago, but better late than never, I suppose.

Plus, if you read between the lines, you would figure I was in a lot of meetings recently in which there was a large amount of writing on white boards. If that is what you figured, you would be right – heh.

Questions, comments, concerns and criticisms always welcome,

John

    If its not too intrusive, you can use a small external webcam positioned at the board and insert pictures on the fly. Or you can actually record video of the meeting  and everything that you write down is synced w/ the video or you can use  the mic from the webcam  too. I realized this after picking up a Microsoft HD-6000  for $3.00 at school  haha
