Some of you may find Evernote to be a useful program. I have used OneNote for several years now and Evernote is similar. However, Evernote is free and runs through a web browser, a desktop application, or a smartphone app and syncs to all locations.
This could be a great tool for research papers and for taking notes in class. I highly recommend checking it out. If anyone is interested, I can show the class what it is and how I'm using it.
Also, as many(?) of you have twitter on your phones, I will try tweeting when a new blog post goes up so you're less likely to be caught off guard. Those tweets will show up on the blog to the right.
