I’ve been pondering for a while how to add a pen holder to my Moleskine plain page Reporter notebook. I had a vague idea of the approach I wanted to use, so I was half-way there. Yesterday I got the urge to do a search, and found a lot of entries – to my surprise – but they all miss the mark. I want a simple design, non-destructive, with a minimal impact to the book itself, and with zero impact to the size of the book. After all, what’s the point of getting a small book to put in your pocket, and then adding bulk to it. Let’s face it, even the Reporters aren’t that small. Anyway…
Indexing and Organizing a Moleskine Notebook
(This actually applies to almost any notebook)”
The motivation for this comes from not wanting to waste space in my notebook, but wanting to be able to easily find related notes from the past.
You know you never finish even one thought in one sitting, right?
This comes from a programming concept called “threading”
The concept is this: The last piece of data in a block of data is actually the directions to find the next piece of data in that block. So… If the size of each piece of data is limited — in this case a page — when you get near the end of the allotted piece of data, you insert, as the last piece of information, where to find the next part of the piece of data.
