Eric Mack has released the second podcast in a series covering his paperless challenge on his Tecra M4 Tablet PC. Tracy Hooten of The Student Tablet PC blog joins Eric again to discuss the best practices and challenges they faced trying to go completely paperless. I am really enjoying these podcasts having been paperless for some months now with my Tablet PC and it is fun hearing Eric and Tracy discussing the same issues I faced when I made the conversion.
The duo answer an interesting question from a listener who wonders how they are saving time when they invest a lot of time scanning in large text works, such as text books. They answer the question quite nicely so if you have been curious about that listen carefully to what they say. I would add to their answer an observation from my own experience. Sometimes the important point is locating information you need quickly with little warning, such as in a business meeting. Having invested some time when you have it free to scan in that information goes a long way when you need to access it quickly. Give this second part in the series a listen and if you missed the first part (shame on you) then make sure you listen to it first.
