I'm doing some research on design documentation and am interested in what tools people use to document their work-in-progress.
Do you keep a design journal? Do you video tape / photograph your work? Do you use any special software?
...and when do you know when your work is Instructables-ready? How do you determine how much detail to provide in your Instructable? And what are the hardest parts of the documentation process?
Also, if you're interested in participating in a study about how people document design work, please send me a message, and I'll provide some more details!
