Working on the move

Moleskine and pen

We looked on Monday at Taking your software with you: Portable Apps, but I wondered what you thought about the whole thing?

While portable applications are a great solution for me, others will want to take a laptop and have everything with them in the one go. Due to a lack of budget (and a fear of looking pretentious!), I tend not to work on a laptop while I’m travelling. In fact, for serious work that doesn’t actually require a computer, I prefer a good old-fashioned notebook and pen.

So I wanted to know: what do you use to work when you’re on the move? Are you hi-tech or olde-worlde? Are you a laptop person, dictaphone crazy, portable-app evangelist, or notebook and pen traditionalist? Let us know in the comments what works best for you.

Disclosure: The notebook and pen links, should you make a purchase from Amazon.co.uk, will generate a small amount of revenue for Geek-Speak.

    I tend to use whatever is available. Digital memo is good, A4 notebook and trusty moleskine with Space Pen! I love PortableApps and Evernote (which can be installed on a flash drive).

  2. Hello,
    I used to be a digital addict but now I’m both a digital and analog people.

    When in my regular office I take notes in a text processor, and quick jots on paper.

    While on the move I use my laptop to write articles and documentations, and mostly paper to take notes .

    In both cases most professional notes and jots end up in digital form.

    My planner (weekly and monthly) and personal logbook are paper ones.

  3. Thanks for the feedback, guys – it’s always good to know what others are up to :)

    I like the mix of analogue and digital.

    Anyone else got an opinion on this?
