Wouldn't it be awesome if there was such thing as a thought recorder?
Imagine that you're having a discussion with a client who is taking six years to tell you the same story he told you yesterday. Your mind wanders and you run through what you need to do before your big meeting this afternoon. "Call Susan and arrange a projector. Print out four copies of the contract. Make sure you don't seat Clive next to Deon because they'll start talking about rubgy and we'll never get anything done."
Of course, by the time your conversation has concluded, you'll have forgotten all of these things. But if you had a thought recorder, you could have taken notes without your client even knowing. This magical machine could be a small earpiece - inobtrusive and hardly noticeable. And it could have the capability, like modern voice recorders, to be plugged straight into your computer. That way you could download your thoughts and save them to the relevant file. The recorder would, of course, have "password protect" capability (you would only be able to access the files by thinking of the password) and be able to transcribe thoughts into picture or text files.
Imagine - all those blog posts you think of late at night might actually get published!
