I would love to use CT but I can’t get past the big premium for the USB version (which I would need to use at my workplace).

I think the pricing has been mentioned here before.

I own the SuperCombo (single user + USB) for around $115. Upgrades are less than half of that I think. Anyway, I can appreciate your hesitation to pay that price to “most” software vendors. However, with Eduardo, you will certainly get every penny’s worth. He is very responsive, constantly updating and improving the software, and truly concerned with helping users achieve their individual goals (within reason, of course.) Having spent money in the past on IdeaMason, ZuluPad, and others, I view the product fee for CT to be one of the most secure investments I’ve made thus far.

Must be Friday afternoon’s happy hour - I can’t even spell my name correctly.

Am fearful to post about Connected Text because once when I did one of the professors on the list got his knickers in a twist & left - and he was someone whose work I respected, and continue to respect.

I’ve no doubt that Connected Text is great software product - I’ve seen examples of its use for tracking ideas, references, seemingly unconnected pieces of info, etc.

My problem was - and continues to be - that I am unable to conceptualize how to start using it. While I wish the developer had some intro material geared to people like myself, I also recognize the problem is probably at least in part some limitations I have in learning something which at first seems abstract. (Interestingly, I began taking karate a year ago, and have noticed some changes in how my mind works, but it hasn’t yet generalized into the sphere of learning new software.)

Perhaps I will give it a go again.

I was so glad to rad this post Daly. I am intrigued by CT, and have seen many eulogies about its value, from people who’s other words have proven wise and useful to me [including certain professors] - but I simply cannot get my head around how to start with it.
I open it up and just sit there, frustrated at my own seeming simplicity! Takes me back to my undergraduate days and ANOVA, etc.
Perhaps I too should take up karate.
