Annotated Bullet Journal: One Book to Rule Them All by Jamie Todd Rubin (Jamie Todd Rubin)
Isaacson pointed out that more than 7,000 pages from Da Vinci’s notebooks survived to today–a stretch of 500 years. He asked how many of our tweets and Facebook posts will survive even 50 years. Paper, it turns out, is a durable medium of information storage.  

Of course one also needs to think about reach and distribution as well. His notebooks have much more reach and distribution now than they ever did in his own lifetime. Where’s the balance? Blogging about it, syndicating to social media, and then printing paper copies in annual increments?

Found the brush pens and paper I was looking for at Daiso Japan here. Got the last of two different kana notebooks they had in stock.

They’ve got an awesome selection! Possibly even better than what I’d seen on Amazon recently. The clerk said their Alhambra location was even bigger, so I’ll have to go there soon.

The Pentel Arts Pocket Brush Pen was by far the best pen I tested today, but at over $20, it was on the expensive side and probably wouldn’t do as well for me at present with my mediocre skills at the moment. I’ll circle back around to it when I’ve practiced my kana a little longer.

I ended up buying a couple pens and two notebooks.
