Specifics on notetaking

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be mysterious about my notations.

The short answer: I use the letter "T" next to ideas. I know my notes well enough (in terms of my own writing style) to be able to scan a notebook and find those ideas.

The point about notations is much like managing a calendar, it doesn't matter where or how you keep it but that you keep it predictably and stick with one format.

Here's a link to my blog with a long list of what and how I keep notes:  http://www.testingreflections.com/node/view/6536
