Can somebody volunteer to take notes?

The meeting is about to begin and the moderator asks "Can somebody take notes?". And then *nobody says a word*. Should you volunteer?

Tanya Reilly (of Being Glue fame) wrote a great post on why notes matter, who should take them, and when you should volunteer. I agree with 100% of everything she says and want to be better myself about taking notes. I used to do this a lot in the earlier stages of my career and it made a surprisingly large impact; I should recover the practice.

Important, short read.
