Discussion on: [Halp!] How do you take notes?

I do paper notes as well. I've tried digital notes - usually in something like OneNote since I prefer cross-platform access - but I find paper notes more effective in helping me think and clarify what I'm working on.

What I may try in the future is taking them on paper, but then taking 10-15 minutes at the end of the day to transcribe and organize the relevant parts in OneNote. This seems like it would solve several problems - paper to help me work through a problem, transcribing them to help with retaining the knowledge, getting it into OneNote to make it searchable.
