|The notebooks from the future|
I had a great theme for a full blog post recounting some of my experiences with Rocketbook Wave. But after continued and varied experiences I have decided to save that theme for a later post, with some notes here to start the ball rolling on a multi-post series.
|Pilot's webpage displays FriXion brand pens in all shapes and sizes|
The erasable notebook's secrets to success seem to start with the (included) Pilot FriXion pen. I find I am reminded (maybe too much) of the old "magic behind the LaserJet" spiel, where the story begins with the toner cartridge (and the same could be said of story behind HP's inkjet cartridges). As far as Pilot writing instruments, I remember my awareness of the company going back to pre-HP and pre-LaserJet days, in my first "real" job in 1976. Some fellow employees in the office were pen/pencil freaks (there are a lot of them out there), who were going nuts over Pilot mechanical pencils. Reading the company's fascinating history on their website, their founding in Japan in 1918 was followed much later by a US-based entity established in 1972, meaning I was getting the word not too long after this.
|With my first FriXion giving up the ghost, a trip to Target offered a few FriXion choices - I settled on this variety pack.|
I can't wait to learn and experiment a bit more, in preparation for another blog post, which will be coming soon!
|The back of the package led to some interesting insights as well as questions.|
