New model: Moleskine Reporter Notebooks

Moleskine Reporter Notebooks, MoleskineUS

Drool. Spanking new Moleskine reporter notebooks look really nice. Can’t wait to pick one up for myself.

Looks like they’re very similar to the old-school classic Moleskine, but with the flippable top-binding and a vertically-oriented accordion pocket. The immediate improvement I can see would be for writing in cramped places—like the top of your thigh while riding the bus. I wonder if the binding allows it to flip over completely without damaging the spine.

Anxious to hear what other folks think of these. Anyone tried them yet?

Disclosure/Plug: MoleskineUS purchases made via our site help support 43F.

yeah, what's wrong with you...

yeah, what's wrong with you people? You can write notes with the end of a burnt match on the bark of a birch tree! Matches are free at restaurants and diners... 3 bucks for a little notebook..

...just kidding...

Managing your personal life is a very personal thing. Some do it with 50cent-per-hundred note cards. Some use a $20 notebook. Some use a $200 PDA AND $2000 computer. Jeez - some people make a living doing it for other people (so someone is paying many thousands of dollars for it)

If you can afford it, and it works for you, then why not do it that way? A tool you like is a tool you'll use.

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. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

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