Digital Zettelkasten - Principles, Methods, and Examples
It's a book from Dave Kadavy.
A good idea of what the book is can be seen in this article here
The book is pretty shallow, but made me internalize the importance of atomic notes.
Why did I read this book?
I want to improve my Personal Knowledge Management methodology.
This short book is just a tidbit about this topic. Quick reading, no huge value, but I don't consider the time spent as wasted.
I like the flow chart of his Zettelkasten process:
The author says that it's inspired by the Getting Thing Done method (A Arte de fazer Acontecer).
This is actually a quote taken from How to take smart notes):
The way people choose their keywords shows clearly if they think like an archivist or a writer. Do they wonder where to store a note or how to retrieve it? The archivist asks: Which keyword is the most fitting? A writer asks: In which circumstances will I want to stumble upon this note, even if I forget about it? It is a crucial difference.
