When I was a technical writer in another life I used to record all of my interviews then transcribe them later. It made it so much easier than trying to remember what the programmer said. Going back and asking is like pulling teeth. They just aren't that easy about giving up information.

When I have an idea in the middle of the night, or before I go to bed, I'll write it down so I stop worrying about it or thinking about it. It's so much easier that way. Sometimes, I've said to myself, "oh, I'll remember in the morning" and I don't. So, now I write everything down.

Jane, Are you saying that you "talk" into the recorder and put together your presentation that way, then transcribe it for your notes? Interesting. I never would have thought about doing something like that. Thanks.
