    Sorry, but I’ve seen a lot of these “hacks” done to Moleskines long before the Maker notebook was made.

  2. Gareth Branwyn says:

    True enough. It’s just interesting to see them putting it all together and running a notebook hacking contest.

    My Moleskines look incredibly old school now, the nearest I got to a hack was the Post-it note and pens clipped on the band. I just write in mine.

    That said, 5 notebooks a year for 50 years is about as much of a lifetime supply as you can reasonably accept – you’d be hard pressed to fill all that. It beats “lifetime” supplies of chocolate etc that turn out to be a bar of chocolate a week (come on, has the company never been 6 years old?)
