PoIC (Pile of Index Cards)関連ツール一式 アイデアや作業環境などなど。



When i first saw Patrick Ng‘s mind.Depositor i was blown away. It is very sophisticated and looks so great! But i wanted to build something around my beloved Moleskine 18 months - Weekly Notebook. I started with some sketches and a paperboard mock-up. It worked fine and i decided to use it for a while. So i went through my old magazines in search for some nice pictures that would prettify it.


Have a look!

Galison 4x6 accordion file in which I keep my cards. My system evolved from a checklist grid inspired by Edward O'Connor's personal unit tests, Ben Franklin's weekly table of virtues, templates from DIY Planner and the original Hipster PDA all via Lifehacker.

This is my customized Moleskine planner, made from a standard pocket Moleskine (ruled) to resemble the format of a Moleskine Weekly Planner.


I created this planner, because Moleskine 2006 Weekly Planners are hard to find and expensive. But beyond cost or scarcity, I thought it would be interesting to create my own planner from scratch, based on some great ideas gleaned from Bill Westerman's Miquelrius notebook:


So far, I'm very pleased with how this little book is working for my personal agenda.

John Dickerson owns the largest binder clip I've ever seen.

On the first page (before the pockets), the holds a menu of two daily planning forms, which were inspired by David Seah's Printable CEO forms. They are held in place by plastic corners used to hold pictures in scrapbooks.


A Moleskine cahier converted into a Hipster PDA case, because the Moleskine memo pocket is too fat to fit in my pocket.

At the Staples in Westlake Village, CA yesterday and found nice leather 3x5 case in the new "M by Staples" gear.


Case has 3 pockets in addition to the one's ready for writing.


Also got a thick stack of 3x5 cards with lines on one side and grid on the back. Case is $10 and the cards were $3


There's a new url for this product line: - it only shows a small subset of the products (and does not show these) but does include a search engine for stores carrying the line.


Finally, here's the link to the item...

pink: weekly checklist

this goes in the duct tape wallet

O meu saudoso Hipster PDA. Ela era bem hipster, mas não muito PDA. Pelo menos eu ficava mais tempo brincando de deixá-lo bonito do que usando-o para fazer coisas úteis ou inúteis.

I love seeing these sorts of photos from other people, so when I realized I need to clean out my bag, I decided to do my own.


Generally, I also carry a knitting project (socks, often) and books for class.


More photos of my GTD System are here:

Find a strong plastic folder and cut it into a size slightly larger than 4x6 in. You may want to consider what else you will put into this jacket before you decide the final size.


Make 4 slits so that you can insert the clips on the spine.

The one thing I don't' like about this hack is that the binder clip needs to stick out all the time. If the inner part is folded in (as shown here), you can't access it as easily.


This is a PITA, but for now (i.e., the last 6 hours), I'm living with it.

These are a bunch of cards that can be added to your hipster to provide reference for whatever you may need. I built a template in PowerPoint that I just post whatever I think will be handy in it and print it out on cardstock, then cut out the card.

Two bags, and all of the stuff that goes inside of them. I don't carry both everywhere. The small bag is what I carry to work each day, and the large bag I use when I want to being my big Dell with me.

Cool, isn't it?


First, make your own hipster PDA, then buy a clingfilm, copy illustrations from your favorite book for children (this is Phileas Fogg from Verne's Around the World in 80 Days illustrated by Adolf Hoffmeister), stick it together, insert the HPDA and enjoy the protection of your notes!

Freed up a drawer in the kitchen, to hold my GTD stuff.

I don't know why I post pictures of my private stuff openly on the internet. I don't like Facebook, StudiVZ and the like because of all the information anybody can get about you there.


But right now, I am so content with being back to my Hipster PDA after trying to get along with Symbian's insufficiencies for some months already that I don't mind my schedule for this month being out for all of you to see (if you care to look at the big version)...


Syncing iCal's information with the calendar built into my phone or with third-party-apps like Papyrus just is a pain in the ass. All-day-events mess everything up, and it's slow and ugly to look at your dates on a Nokia E61. No comparison to the good old Palm days, but since Palm doesn't fully sync with iCal (even with the otherwise all-embracing Missing Sync), that was no option anymore. Maybe if I still had my buggy MDA Compact, which at least synced with Outlook back in those Windows days like a breeze... But those days are over now (until Apple beefs up the iPhone with decent PIM features, possibly)!


I am back to the good ol' pen-and-paper times. It is so easy and cheap and intuitive. This stack of index cards and a pen did me good service when my MDA Compact was in for repairs again and again, and now, I will just stop syncing iCal with my phone once and for all! I feel so relieved!


I just have to print out iCal's monthly view every now and then on a pieces of paper, fold it up nicely and clip it to the stack to be up-to-date wherever I go. And it's much more individual than a PDA these days, too! ;-)

Everything fits neatly inside the inner flap, with cards, tabs, and collected receipts and random paper bits trapped in a single collection silo.

The second spread has a folder for support materials (such as blank cards for notes) and a place holder for procedure cards that are "on deck" (the tasks that I am focusing on).

This is my "ubiquitous capture" other words, it lives in my bag or pocket, waiting to catch the random thoughts that I have, and to direct me in my next actions.

Tab labels were created using a DYMO.

Monday morning is usually the most busy day!!

There are so many things to be done, and to look into.

But with my hipster PDA, it makes every thing easy. It include my To-Do list, my chart, my drawing... all sorts of rubbish.

I color coded the Hipster PDA templates- it's very helpful to quickly find things. I would post my template alterations, but under the creative commons license they are released under, I can't. (PS, there's a link to the ones I can share here: Color Coded hipster PDA templates PDF)


I'm working on some games for the hipster PDA, I will be able to link those.
