Next week is PyCon 2009! Can’t wait!
For the longest time, when I attended a conference, I took notes in a notebook. (No, not a notebook computer, you young whippersnapper. A notebook. Like a Moleskine.) About five years ago, I graduated to bringing a notebook and my laptop. Why both? I wanted on-line connectivity, but some notes were still easier to record by hand. OTOH, I had to consider where to store information, and pull more things out of my shoulder bag than other attendees.
