How do you organize your book notes if you use an e-reader?


by @gpestana | 5yr  | 14 comments

Hey there! As a nomad, how do you organize your book notes? I used to write notes on the physical pages, but now since Iโ€™m always traveling Iโ€™m trying to avoid physical books and it became difficult to keep track of my book notes. Also, I feel that it is so much more effective to retain the information on the book when I take notes of what Iโ€™m readingโ€ฆ

Any ideas for tools/methods to organize your book notes on the road?

I use a service called Clippings.io that can automate clipping your Kindle Highlights page into Evernote at the push of a button. Itโ€™s $1.99/month, but useful if you read a lot and notes are important for you to reference.

I use Marvin ebook reader because it will let me export my notes, but I have to run my kindle books through Calibre DRM strip first.

Hereโ€™s a tangential questionโ€ฆ For both Kindle & iBooks, every now and again, an author will โ€œupdateโ€ their book, and I see the update waiting in my app to be installed. If I do that, will it wipe out the notes I made on the previous version of the book? Or are they retained? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

All your kindle notes are available at https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights There also a not that complicated process of getting them into Evernote: https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/03/25/how-to-save-kindle-highlights-and-notes-into-evernote/

Although I donโ€™t seem to be able to open it. I wonder if thatโ€™s because my Kindle and my books are associated with Amazon.co.uk?

Perhaps. It still feels quite cumbersome and clumsy to do this all the time.

I just tried it and the Your Highlights feature seems to work for accounts connected with Amazon.com.au so there should be a way to get it to work with other overseas accounts (DE, UK). It does take a while to load each book, it uses infinite scrolling (scroll to the bottom of the page to start loading the next book of notes). Itโ€™s also showing my annotated notes as well as my highlights.

That is true. I used Evernote before (long time ago) but at the time didnโ€™t find it as slick as I was expecting. Onenote I donโ€™t know, but will take a look!

Exactly, I wonder how to have those notes/highlights sync into one place. Plus, having a way to edit and add annotations after reading the book would be nice feature.

Are co-working spaces a good way to meet people in a new city?

 

by @donaldbough | 1d 1 day ago | 0 comments

My fiancรฉe and I are most likely moving to NYC (maybe DC) in August, and as a technical startup co-founder I'd love to meet new people that are also into startups. Would joining a co-working space be worth the money to do this?

I work for a big tech company that has an office in NYC, but it's mainly sales so I wouldn't be able to meet others that are related to any of my 9-5 work or likely into tech.

If co-working spaces, post covid of course, aren't a good way to meet business starting people in a new city, what is?

Is La Gomera a nice place to stay?


in Norway by @kvarsten | 8d 8 days ago | 1 comment

Hi, my name is Eric and I am a remote worker from Norway. Me and a friend is flying into Gran Canaria on Friday and spending two weeks in San Agustin on the south side of the Island.

After that we are pondering about staying in La Gomera. Does anyone of you have an experience staying there or are there anyone of you staying there now? :)

Ukraine Residency


in Ukraine by @reticle | 12d 11 days ago | 0 comments

I have a slightly above average US income which I can work remotely from paired with a $1000 a month income stream and more than enough to purchase a middle end Flat in Ukraine. Does anyone with knowledge of this process have any advice to acquire a reliable way to stay in the country?

Hi, we are trying to find a house to rent for 2-3 persons near Las Palmas for 4-5 months at the moment and it seems to be almost impossible except through Airbnb which is super expensive. Any advises or local contacts?

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?


in Russia by @vernon99 | 1mo 1 month ago | 8 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?


in Mexico by @thateverdmitriy | 2mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

How do you organize cables in your backpack?


by @refuseillusion | 5yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

Iโ€™m currently thinking of getting a packing cube and velcro binder after I used a GRID-IT organizer which couldnโ€™t fit all my stuff in the end.
I know some use ziplock bags, but how durable is that? Wonโ€™t it just be one big mess of cable salad?

Whatโ€™s your approach?

How to organize a nomad meetup in the city you're in


by @nomadforum | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Weโ€™ve organized almost 50 meetups of digital nomads now from San Francisco to Berlin to Chiang Mai to Sao Paulo in the last year.

Theyโ€™re very informal get-togethers in a local bar or coworking space with 20 to 50 people (and sometimes 200+, as in Chiang Mai, haha!).

##How do they look?
Wellโ€ฆ



(photos of our previous Berlin meetup by @xiufensilver)

##Why?
Itโ€™s a fun way to meet other travelers in a place youโ€™re at, or if youโ€™re not traveling yet to meet people who have been doing it for awhile.

Entrance is free, and theyโ€™re organized by members from here.

##Whenโ€™s the next meetup?
Almost every week, we have a meetup now somewhere in the world: hereโ€™s a full list of upcoming meetups

##Can I organize a meetup?
Yes! If youโ€™d like to organize a meetup, itโ€™s super easy! Fill out this form and @xiufensilver will contact you to help you arrange it. Usually the meetups are in the evening around 7pm in a local bar or coworking space. But weโ€™ve had brunch meetups too :smile:

Letโ€™s get more nomads together! :sunny:
