“I stopped using software products, because nothing is more flexible than pen and paper.”
We heard this over and over again, every time we talked to a researcher, PhD candidate, a creative, student, or an entrepreneur.
When we asked the “why”, similar answers were raised. “It is time consuming to learn new tools” or “each software pushes for a certain way how I should work and I feel constrained.”
It was astonishing how everyone associated creating, studying, working and doing research with feeling stressed and anxious.
And we have really listened.
