- Read source material and write all my notes down in a notebook, together with page numbers and other reference information.
- Think up an outline. Add the outline to my schedule.
- Go through my notes and write more detail about each point, either going chronologically or skipping around to points that fit into my flow. This step might have been easier if I had written my notes on index cards instead of a ring-bound notebook, but oh well. Anyway, repeat until all of my notes have been included or dropped.
Yes, yes, perfectly obvious to everyone. =)
I also bonked myself over the head for missing another obvious thing. For my reading paper, I should start by looking up all those classic papers on keywords for classification (there should be a few!). If I could find a paper or two that talked about user interface differences that make it easier to assign keywords, that would be great. The key thing that I need to explain in my paper is why the social aspect is so very interesting, and what that enables: browsing, searching, mapping... =) What's old is new again, after all. I think the Internet's radically transformed keywords, though, making the social dimension non-negligible...
