I have a colleague who has an email folder called Ideas. She puts interesting stuff in there for a future date. She doesn't use social media much, let alone to bookmark, or share stuff, but if it ain't broke don't fix it. My client @rossb82 showed me today why he prefers Google Reader to Bloglines or Firefox for his RSS feeds, and a lot of it seemed to be how he stores and shares ideas. Blogger Steve Rubel has been posting tonight about how he uses Gmail for all his ideas too. His method is a kind of super-user back to basics approach. Everything's on Gmail, but in a vary complex way. Take a look if you feel brave.
It got me wondering if the way I store and share my ideas is the right way?
Sharing: I use delicious, Twitter and blogs. I don't use Google Reader's shared items. I share pics on Flickr and Ffffound (forgive all the 33's!).
Storing: I have pages in my Moleskine for ideas, I tag and star emails in Gmail and use it as a a storage space because the seach is so good. I store pics in Ffffound and have private pics on Flickr. I also have private ideas saved on Delicious.
