Tinderbox for Students (and Professors)
Keep in touch with the artisanal software festival! Concise, and timely; we never share your email address.
✩ Tinderbox is a superb tool for planning research, designing courses, and presenting results. There’s lots of exciting new activity on teaching and writing over in the Tinderbox Forum and in the Tinderbox wiki.
✩ Tinderbox lets your ideas come alive and talk back to you. It's an outliner, but each section keeps itself sorted exactly the way you want it. It's an information map, but one that can manage thousands of active notes that can help organize themselves.
✩ You write a note about a new research source. Your note is active: it doesn't just sit there. It might, say:
- “I'm in the Rare Book Collection, so I'm green.”
- “I've just been added, so put me at the top of the list.”
- “And I'm available without waiting for interlibrary loan, so I have a special shape, a bright green border, and I belong in the Urgent List.”
- “Oh — and I haven't been mentioned there, I should be in my agenda for next month's group meeting.”
✩ You decide how notes behave, and how much automatic organization you want to have.
✩ Avoid premature commitment. You can get started in seconds. Make notes now, organize later. As your understanding increases and as new concepts spring up, Tinderbox makes it easy to adapt and reorganize.
✩ Tinderbox plays well with other tools with superb export to HTML, XML, and more.
