Recording Law Classes

It was rare for me to skip recording a class on my laptop and I remember as the term progressed I debated the merits of bothering with the hassle.

Today - I feel really, really, really smart for making digital recordings of my classes. Using Audacity, I can double or even triple the playback speed of past classes enabling me to quickly skim through the recordings for clues as to what the Prof was emphasizing.

If you take a laptop to class and are thinking of recording next term, check out Audacity. It exports/imports most formats (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, etc), is an open-source (free as in freedom) application and runs on everything from Linux to Windows.
