Notes, Lists, and Everyday Inscriptions

The grocery list: scribbled on the back of last month’s electricity bill, or stored on the Droid, where it’s conveniently organized by supermarket aisle number. That minor epiphany that struck on the subway: transcribed to a Moleskin, or translated into a Voice Memo on the iPhone.

This cluster examines how different processes of and platforms for note-taking shape the everyday ways we think, record, and remember.
