The Pocket Notebooks of 20 Famous Men | The Art of Manliness
A fascinating look into how some well known folks have used their notebooks. As a notebook nerd, this fills me with such geekish delight I can barely contain myself. I especially love this little anecdote about George Lucas:
While mixing the sound for American Graffiti with Walter Murch, Murch asked Lucas for R2, D2, meaning Reel 2, Dialogue 2. Lucas liked the sound of that phrase and jotted it down in his notebook. This little note would of course come in handy later for the naming of that now famous robot.
