I gave away a Moleskine today to Gabriel Mansour, one of the students
I'd met at Mesh. He's been enthusiastically going to networking events
and taking down notes, and I saw him struggling with the little paper
tickler he had. The university bookstore didn't have plain hard-bound
journals in stock, so I bought three packs of thin plain journals
instead. They still have inner pockets, which are tremendously useful
for keeping things like business cards in place. I gave one of the
journals to him, and I'm sure he'll put it to good use.

It's a little bit odd to be taking notes during a conversation, yes,
but I'll take remembering over forgetting any day.
