I was torn as to whether to put this in the “Tech” category, because the process is somewhat “tech” but the result is decidedly low-tech.
If you’ve been looking for a free alternative to a PDA, you should give PocketMod a shot. It is a flash interface which allows you to organize your information in a way that would be most convenient for you.
“The PocketMod is a new way to keep yourself organized. Lets face it, PDA’s are too expensive and cumbersome, and organizers are bulky and hard to carry around. Nothing beats a folded up piece of paper. That is until now. With the PocketMod, you can carry around the days notes, keep them organized in any way you wish, then easily transfer the notes to your PDA, spreadsheet, or planer.
The PocketMod is a small book with guides on each page. These guides or templates, combined with a unique folding style, enable a normal piece of paper to become the ultimate note card. It is hard to describe just how incredibility useful the PocketMod is. It’s best that you just dive in and create one.”
