The setting was a lecture from Marc Selverstone from the Miller Center at University of Virginia. He was discussing the war in Vietnam and how the whitehousetapes.net could be used in the classroom. During his lecture, Jim Luteran pulled out his Livescribe Digital pen. He took notes on a special pad. The camera on his pen transcribes his notes directly into his computer.
Ok, so what? By clicking on the notes on his computer screen it pulls up a digital voice file that the pen recorded and now he can listen again to the voice of Marc explaining the idea from the lecture that had taken place an hour before.
The pen retails online or at Staples and Best buy for $149 for a 2 gig digital pen. Just worth a look. Garth
