A hipster PDA is a pack of index cards with a clip where each card serves a different function as a retro-PDA (Personal Digital Assistant).


Writer and blogger Merlin Mann introduced the Hipster PDA in 2004. In 2005, NewMexicoKid (co-Municipal Liaison (ML) for the Illinois::Naperville region of NaNoWriMo) created a NaNoWriMo version and introduced it to the NaNoWriMo ML community.
