Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

Oral Folk Tales of Mac History

Oral Folk Tales of Mac History -- Stories of famous Mac people, the reality distortion field, and years of sleeplessness are now available in oral form from Derek Warren. At Macintosh Folklore Radio, Warren is reading the snippets that are part of Mac designer Andy Hertzfeld's Folklore.org that represents part of the book Hertzfeld compiled into Revolution in the Valley. I reviewed that charming, picaresque tale for TidBITS last year (see "Continuous Revolution").

Warren is performing these episodes under terms of the Creative Commons license that Hertzfeld applied to his writing (though Warren still asked permission). The episodes can be downloaded as podcasts from the iTunes Music Store, too. It's ironic, of course, that a site that purports to tell the true story is called Folklore.org, that a written history is being turned into "oral folklore," and that the voice reading the stories isn't that of the first-person author who wrote them as "folklore."
