[quote=”Kelemelan” post=2944]Yeah, but comps aren’t book. I can’t browse them quickly and efficiently check in 10 seconds if what’s in page 27 of book 1 is ok with what’s on page 72 of book 2 AND with page 245 of book 3 simultaneously… and then switch to a fourth book that I will keep open… plus take note on all of this plus draw a small map, etc…

Doing that with paper would take me like 30 sec top. 1 mn including the map. If I have to browse through several computers or files, it’s gonna be much longer.

I’m not at all against computer. I’m using them all the time (hey, I’m here :P) but I did learn that they can definitely slow us down. :)[/quote]

I disagree. I’m much faster on PC. But all my images, all my notes, all my research is all done on PC, in shared storage, so it’s all right there for me whenever I need it even on the tablet. The books and all I did for years and years. My mom and one of my brothers are librarians. We all kinda grew up with books everywhere and doing research of all kinds. So I embrace PCs for that. I love them. My mom does too. 🙂

But still, there is no ‘right’ way. To each his own. I just prefer everything at my fingertips to going and getting books off the shelves.
