My Twitter Notebook is Open Source

My Twitter Notebook is now open source. I'd like to see what other people would do with it, given the opportunity.

My Twitter Notebook: The Story.

I'd like to start off by saying: I'm not an organized person. I get by pretty well with lists, but overall I don't plan things more than a week in advance, and I don't do a good job remembering things for more than a few days at a time. I decided that I wanted to get better about that, but didn't know where to start. I bought a scanner, and that has helped tremendously; I've also started keeping lists and making quick short notes (I was never much for taking notes, school or otherwise). For that end, I wanted to use my cell phone (calls and text messages only though) to take notes. I thought that I could e-mail myself or DM my own twitter account, but that was a little too primitative, because notes are only good to me if I can search through them, browse, tag, etc as they happen.

I made my twitter notebook in the first couple days of 2009, and I've been very happy with it. Since then, it's made some "Top xx" lists, and also been mentioned (as an aside really) on an MSNBC blog.
