Thanks for recommending these videos. Beck’s examples of how to use Tinderbox for thinking about and working with her research has been very helpful to me. I watched her first four videos and have already gotten some great ideas on how to proceed putting my notes in Tinderbox for my large creative projects. My projects have now spanned years and have become unwieldy for me to work with in the “system” – if you can call it that – I have been using.
Like Beck, I usually start with paper notebooks. And like Beck, it has become increasingly more difficult for me to find older notes, although I have been indexing my notebooks for the past few years. However, being in notebooks, my notes have become too easy to just put away and not work with frequently. And though I have a method for referencing across paper notebooks, I really need to use a computer now for better linking and working with creative ideas. These are great examples from Beck!
