“For my own learning. I’ve only recently come across this really simple note taking tool. Use it for my own reflections and things I want to remember, as well as a planning space for my blog.” Dan Hewitt, UK

“Versatile. I use it mainly for remembering and keeping stuff readily to hand. I use it across all areas of life from my shopping list to softball meetings, from modern workplace learning to playing Pokemon Go! to keeping medical records and minutes of meetings.” Sharyn Mayne, Australia
