Big Doodle

Big Doodle, originally uploaded by Dandelion Vicious.
8.25x10.5 ... not huge.
Big in time involved ... big difference in approach ... big leap from scratches in margins that are finished 'cuz I turned the page or left the meeting or whatever.

This was A Project that started with An Idea, followed A Plan, that had A Conclusion.

Outside: patterns from nature
Inside: man-made patterns

It was big fun to do! I thought I'd never get it done. As soon as I finished, half of me wanted to start again ... the other half got distracted by a bug.

Brain dump from early 2007:
I want it to be web-based.
I want a blank slate to start with, into which I can type, chuck photos, toss files, drop addresses, doodle with a tablet.
I want to dump the information first, then decide what to do with it.
I want it all to go into a big pool where I can fish things out by folder or tag or type of thing it is or date or any one of a bajillion other criteria.
I want to be able to hook any one piece to another or to a calendar date or chuck it into a folder.
Then I want to be able to change my mind.
I want to be able to do things in batches.
I want a calendar, and I want it to sync with iCal and Google Calendar.
I want folders.
I want tags.
I want a thought cloud.
I want drag-and-drop.
There are lots of great things out there with lots of different ways to retrieve information, but the input part is limited. I don't want to have to think about how to fit what I want to say into a one-line box, or any kind of set fill-in-the-blank thing.

Not quite there yet, but getting closer all the time, but not quite there yet ... etc. Google Wave, Scrivener, Flickr, Shove Box ... I like these, starting to get kinda sorta close to what I want.
