Elegant Tool: Single Sheet Cutters
Single Sheet Cutter

    It is always a good idea to keep a clip from newspaper for useful references, other than keeping the whole page. It could save you time to search what you really wanted to reference, and because the clip is smaller than whole page of newspaper, you can categorize the clips easily. Problem: It is not a quick job. You need to find a pair of scissors, lift up the page you want to cut, and try to trace and cut it along the section.

    A better solution: There is a more elegant tool called Single Sheet Cutters which provides a quicker and safer way to cut out any newspaper or magazines. Draw it along the section to cut. Best of all, you don’t need to lift up the top page, only top sheet is cut, underlying pages will stay:

    If you’re a committed newspaper clipper, you’ll find that these Single-Sheet Cutters are quicker and safer than scissors (and they also slice tenacious shrinkwrap). The cutting element is a tiny speck of ceramic that barely sticks out beyond its housing. Draw it across a newspaper, and just the top sheet is cut.

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
