Using LJ as a personal notes repository  
I've decided that I might as well use LJ as a repository for notes I've taken (at panels, for example). These, on "web accessibility", were taken in December 2000.

I'd be very interested to hear from current web experts as to whether they think this has changed over time and, if so, how.

ETA: That is, if how people respond to web pages has changed in the last nine years since I took the notes posted in the link.

notes on LJ
I keep a storylist on the top of my blog (future dated and private locked) and I often note writing ideas in other private-locked posts. I find it a useful centralised location and seeing it on my blog helps encourage me to get it done!

I don't think much has changed in the past nine years, at least insofar as the description of students contained in your notes is concerned.

I certainly do use Live Journal as a notes repository. On several occasions, before it ceased to offer advertising-free unpaid basic accounts, I used it as the chief on-line nexus for various classes -- including the two iterations of the SF class. My experience with these was mixed -- most of the difficulties, I felt, were due to lack of time, energy, and inclination on my part, rather than anything in particular wrong with the idea. I don't use Blackboard or the various other things of that kind -- I expect to try a wiki-type format this fall.

Sorry, that wasn't very clear. If how people respond to web pages has changed from the description in the link.

FYI, you might want to tag your notes so you can find them among your posts. I use LJ to record memorable dreams, and I really should go back and tag them all. Some I might want to use in fiction.

What I'm interested in lately is document management, especially version control and reference citation control with multiple users. If you have any information or advice on that, please pass it on! Most of the books on version control that I've seen on Amazon and library sites have been about controls for computer programs rather than electronic and print documents.

Anyway, that's a concern in my boring little corner of the world...
