Papers all over my desk

How do you keep order of your HPDA? I like the paperversion before the electronic PDA as it gives my much more options. I write a list on each card specified by a given context at the top of the card and keep all the paper together with a paper clip. But one thing I don't like is finding the right context paper as for example the @ToCall one. Papers can stick together and as they are just a pile of papers I soon found myself with them spread all over my desk. And getting the @ToCall paper while being in my car (when I can do most of it) is a real pain... How do you keep them in order, at easy access and still keep the flexibility the HPDA gives?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
