A Tip about Tips

Whenever I am working on an interactive audio project I am always remembering some old trick that I learned in a previous situation. When that fails I am spending critical time coming up with a new one. It seems that every time I am discussing the subject with one of my colleagues every thing someone says makes me think of a similar situation and how I approached it. It is ironic that every time I try to put together a lecture or article I have to dig around in my head to remember these tips. I have always meant to write every technique down on paper as it comes up during a project but there never seems to be time or I am too afraid of disturbing my 'train' of thought. Because of this I am sure I will think of many more suggestions the day after this article is published. I am just as sure that you will think of several things that I forgot. Do yourself a favor and write them down. Share them with your colleagues and write down the new ideas that come from those discussions. They can really help when you find yourself facing that blank white screen and especially so when you realize that screen is now multi-layered and multi-threading!
