In my first blog post, I would like to share my thoughts about one of the most necessary software for a researcher, a note-taking software. I use exclusively Linux OS and all the programs I describe I tested on Linux, but most of them are also available on other platforms.
I absolutely agree with the saying that the worst piece of paper is better than the best memory. Given that we live in the digital age, I would also add that an electronic note synchronized with a cloud is even better than the best paper because paper is so easy to lose 🙂 .
The worst piece of paper is better than the best memory.
Nowadays we face a constant flow of enormous amount of information and remembering things is harder than ever. Often we have no time to consume all the information we want, so how we can remember everything.
Taking notes is an essential part of a researcher’s routine, and it has to be done efficiently.
