I've skimmed it and it seems to be an interesting read. Assigned "@read" tag to the CN-note and will read it asap;)) Thanks!

Thanks for posting the paper. Very interesting.

It agrees with one of my recent thoughts that the speed of creating an information scrap; or the ability of the tool to fade into the background and not needing a context switch is extremely important to usability.

This is one of the reasons I think that vanilla Wikis, hierarchical outliners, Lotus Notes etc and other generic tools don't work so well.

To Alex: I think the idea of reducing this impedance in Cintanotes would be terrific.
