Quick query

Has anyone used a "pen scanner" for note-taking. Did it work? (It seems almost too good to be true.) Is there any particular brand or style you'd recommend?

Part of my current ongoing life revamp consists of reconsidering my data collection methods. It seems time to get out of paper.

If we're not quite to Vannevar Bush's perfect desktop, it seems as though we're getting close.

I've only ever seen one person use a pen scanner and she seemed to find it useful and it seemed to work quite well. Not all that helpful, I'm sure, but it's all I got.

Again, I haven't used one, but I had a conversation at a conference last year with someone who uses one a lot (because she has RSI or something along those lines - anyway, something that makes taking notes physically very painful), and she absolutely loved it. But it's the sort of thing where I'd recommend a bit of research - find reviews (consumer and pro) of different brands before you buy, if you can.
