One of the reasons why I wanted a Blackberry or some other portable device was to make better use of those interstitial moments walking from Graduate House to the subway station or taking the train. I had thought of using the time to practice connecting with people, but it's hard to do that when people don't smile or make eye contact. I've also tried reading. I snag a newspaper on my way out and keep a folder of executive summaries from Books24x7 in my backpack. Listening to music? Sure, although I usually find myself looping over one song or album.
After hearing Dan Zen describe his experience with recording a video blog while driving his car (kids, don't try that at home!), I thought: hey, why not record on the go? The quality's going to be terrible - lots of ums and ahs and random traffic noises - but just as blogging helps me refine my thoughts, talking about things will help me refine my stories.
It turns out that the digital voice recorder I bought almost a year ago is surprisingly useful. The low sensitivity setting on the microphone works perfectly for noisy settings, and I can pick out my own voice easily. For presentations and the like, I set it on high sensitivity so that I can record the presentation clearly even on the iPod screen.
