I hadn't had much of a need to take notes of external stimuli (not  
originating within my own head) on my MP2100 prior to my son's  
college orientation day in summer 2008.  Lots of sessions on  
financial aid, campus technology, student life, etc. I tried this  
approach back then and was amazed at how easy and productive it was  
to capture the information being presented.

NB - To make this style of note-taking work, it's important to have  
the HWR set to insert text at the cursor.  In normal day-to-day use  
of my Newton, I prefer to have this turned off for a 'write where I  
put the stylus' experience.
