Evernote University Notebook
Every now and then I'll find an interesting article or document that very interesting to read through. However, I don't have the time at that exact moment to read it - but it seems like something worth wild reading.
That's why I created a "University" notebook in Evernote. I use the Web Clipper and send the article to that Notebook.
When I have downtime, I can browse through the files in University to find something worth reading or learning about. This is useful on my daily train commute or when I am on a plane.
Evernote Premium Subscribers can set designated Notebooks for offline reading.
Once I am done with the article, I then move it to a Library Notebook. That way I always know that the University Notebook will have interesting articles.
I have various articles in my University Notebook such as:
- AngularStrap - AngularJS 1.2+ native directives for Twitter Bootstrap 3.
- The Power of Automation Scripting with PHP
- cURL - Tutorial
- 10 Most Compelling Pieces Of Evidence That Prove Time Travel Exists
- 40 Productivity Hacks To Boost Your Output (In Under 5 Minutes)
Better than Bookmark
The good thing about doing this is that I can remember important articles at the time of discovery. Also, should the article be no longer available I'll have a copy that I can read. Whereas a browser bookmark might point me to a 404 page.
If you have Evernote, I encourage you to have your own University Notebook to store downtime data.
