Information Processing Chapter:
Hack 13. Catch Your Ideas — the end of this hack warns that one might be overwhelmed by ideas, and i know just how that is true.
Hack 14 (like Hack 09, pdf’d) — involved “speedwords” a sort of shorthand for taking notes. (I suddenly think about the possibility of taking notes on a linux iPod with morse code: these speed words would be an extremely useful addition)
Hack 15: understand your learning style(s). See http://tip.psychology.org/index.htm & http://www.vark-learn.com/english/index.asp
Hack 16: mind maps; Hack 17: “exoself” (hipster PDA) Hack 18: pre delete cruft (I get it, but — ah — to do it!)
