I used to carry a journal with me at all times to jot ideas down as they came to me. Last summer I started emailing them to myself instead. I call these emails "brain dumps," since the idea is to record them while freeing up some space in my head. For some reason, these ideas tend to come to me while I am riding a bike.
I've compiled a complete list of all Brain Dumps from 7/16/10 through today. Some relate to personal work, while others relate to jobs or ideas for posts. All are loose and brief, but enough to help me remember.
So here is an unedited look into my head, in chronological order from new to old:
