Next Sunday evening the MicroBlog Republic of Readers will have their second session. The first was a very pleasant conversation with group spanning 12 timezones.

Last time I had promised to share the way I tend to make notes after reading something. Now the date is set I can’t participate (a weekend away with extended family from E’s side). What I aim to do this week is to at least for myself write out what I actually do in practice, and what I would like to do in theory, when it comes to making notes about my reading.

Mapping out how from the various reading devices highlights and remarks get collected, the difference between non-fiction and fiction, between books and articles, etc. It will be useful to myself as well.

Similarly I hope the session gets taped so I can watch the way others approach this afterwards.
