Discussion on: How keeping a sketchbook can make you a better developer

Aaabsolutely. I recently switched from paper to a drawing tablet (for versatility's sake, and to more easily share drafts), but taking notes manually is still part of my day-to-day.

Whenever I have coworkers or reports who use their PC for notekeeping, I always notice the same patterns of lack of visualization, recollection, and overall conceptual weaknesses. Sometimes, I still switch back to paper because it does still have its own benefits as a medium.
