I have started two new note taking practices recently: learning shorthand and sketchnotes. Sketchnotes I've seen fairly frequently around here, but not much mention of shorthand.

My goal with both is that A) I hate taking notes on a computer; B) I'm trying to increase retention, which I'm finding the sketchnotes definitely helps with; C) I need a better way of keeping up in meetings, and writing longhand just isn't cutting it. I'm not far enough along with the shorthand, but I'm curious if anybody else around here uses it.
