After spending enough time in a field, you end up going back to basics. You rediscover the joy of taking photographs with a point-and-shoot, you go back to that first operating system, you enjoy the pleasure of simple yet well-made food. For me, note-taking now enters the same category.
After posting my previous video on Zettelkasten, together with tons of positive feedback, I also received some very valid constructive criticism, mainly regarding things that should be added or rectified. This video aims to address just that.
I talk about Zettelkasten a lot in my blog, but always indirectly. “Here’s the best tool for it,” or “Here’s how you can maintain one in the long term.”
But what’s a Zettelkasten, anyway? In this video, I answer exactly that question, and briefly tell you how you can have one too.
In this post I will go through some of the thoughts I have about keeping and organizing knowledge in my Zettelkasten.
In this post I will talk about my personal knowledge management system, how it developed into a Zettelkasten, what Zettelkasten is, and why I think iA Writer is pretty much perfect for it.
