People are posting their guesses at what I plan to announce. There have been several interesting comments, so far.

I fully expected that Michael would have the first comment, and he did not disappoint me. Rob Bushway didn't miss a beat, either,

I much prefer Cary Phillip's guess at what the announcement might be:
You've finally found a 70 inch touch screen with 1024000 x 768000 resolution (perfect for mindmapping)?
Cary, I wish it were so!  (I actually built one, but the resolution was very low)

Dave, took the analog productivity track and suggested that my Tablet PC adventures might be pointing in the "paper-based challenge" direction.

No, my announcement will cover my experience during the past year of working with a Tablet PC and the Toshiba Tecra M4 in specific.

Here's a summary of my Tablet PC experience. I will review this and comment, soon.
