Commentary on NIDs: Noun IDs
What could possibly work as a Word IDs (WIDs)?
Nouns really. Any person, place, or thing. (Maybe this subset could be called Noun IDs: NIDs).
- Things: [[Hormesis]] could be a good candidate for a NID. The note would be my personal wiki entry. Then, if I want to write about Hormesis separately, it would be titled
202005089999 Interesting Hormetic Happenings.
- People: [[John Doe]]
- Places: [[Rome]]
One common argument for some NIDs
It works well for readability.
ie [[Antifragility]] is related to [[Hormesis]]. This is clean and readable as opposed to: [[201605089999 Antifragility]] is related to [[201605109999 Hormesis]]
One argument against having NIDs
It strips a note of its Temporal Context (in which I pitched a case for above).
NIDs may not really benefit from having a DTID "Temporal Context" in the filename. (If not in the filename, you should always have the DTID somewhere within the file of course!).
ie [[John Doe]] is John Doe and that's not changing. If you meet with John Doe, then those notes become [[201805089999 Meeting w John Doe]] and [[202002089999 Meeting w John Doe re Frisbee]]
No problem I see. What problems might come from this?
