What if what you were just working on just pops open on whatever surface you go to and start to work? My productivity would probably double with how much time it takes to get all of my stuff out and actually start working but would it really be an organized way of doing things? Binders are an attempt to make something that one can take with them and open right to the spot they left off but they don’t give you a pencil and music. Computers are almost as bad, when one turns on a computer it will either start from where you left off (if it’s in sleep) or give you a blank canvas. The big problem with computers is that homework can be translated to the computer with a little effort but it also can be hard to backup and even harder to learn how to translate your equations into code. Even worse is that there is NO guarantee that the program that one uses is compatible with the program their teacher uses.
I have been working on trying to learn how to translate My math notes to PC so that I would have an easier time storing it but the thing I’ve noticed was how awkward it seems to transfer between programs (aka if I wanted to back it up with evernote then the equations no longer show up) So I am just wondering, why not? The language I am using to type these notes is LaTex and it is a commonly used open-source language but it does not work the same way in evernote as it works in NixNote on linux, in fact Evernote does not even suppport any type of equation writing on its online note editor. My point is: if there is an open standard for translating these to computer why doesn’t everyone support the idea of it?
To be fair nixnote, which is the client I use to upload to evernote, is not an officially supported program but it still is annoying that I cannot find anyway to get my notes taken on a device and back them up simultaneously! I just need one program with some math writing shortcuts so that I can use it to transcribe my notes after class?! I guess they can’t make it easy to do but could people at least make it freakin’ possible?
