Note-Taking Software

There are a lot of tasks which are so simple that most programmers think that they can just set out and write their own. One of this is note-taking software. There are a couple products out there, but none are quite perfect. And instead of improving one of the existing ones, it is tempting to just start with their own. In the end, of course, there will be just one additional niche solution that only really works for the programmer but not the next user.

Scientific abstracts should tell the reading whether it is worth reading at all, allowing the researcher to cover more material in an efficient way.
