A lot clicked into place for me through 3 resources:— Paul Cook (@therealpaulcook) April 6, 2020
1. @andy_matuschak's notes (https://t.co/MulU4nQRqM)
2. @nateliason's vid on outlining in Roam https://t.co/HDuf4EEKON
3. @david_perell's videos on his writing process (https://t.co/e77MlrsoIf and https://t.co/3gOYy2szwJ)
Evergreen notes are written and organized to evolve, contribute, and accumulate over time, across projects
- Evergreen notes should be atomic
- Evergreen notes should be concept-oriented
- Evergreen notes should be densely linked
- Prefer associative ontologies to hierarchical taxonomies
As I tweeted in reply, a lot about that reminds me of the natural writing style of Federated Wiki, and when you look at Andy’s site in a desktop browser and start clicking links, concepts open up to the side in a way reminiscent of the FedWiki approach.
Another nice feature is the popout summary of another note when you mouseover a link. Notable is the lack of mention of federation, or any concept of multi-user use, however as Andy states “it’s still an early research environment”
Christian Tietze maintains The Zettlekasten Project which contains some interesting material to mine later. Clearly there are links here to Vannevar Bush‘s work in As We May Think but again, something to mine later.
