This is how I use Squeak to organize thoughts and record ideas. I took
inspiration from Dan's Seven Implementations talk.
I create one project per topic in the topmost World. Within a project world, I
use the top 2/3 top for objects and project thumbnails and the bottom 1/3 for
minimized workspace windows. I also 'duplicate' frequently used menu items
(e.g. 'new morph', 'objects') from World menu to this area. This gives me a
simple and effective workspace to think through ideas one at at time. The
same setup is good enough to present to others, so I no longer have to
prepare slides separately. My image is also small enough to fit in a 512MB
USB flash memory along with Squeak executables, so I no longer have to lug a
computer along with me to be productive.
Hope this helps .. Subbu
