Inline key-words and key-phrases
Been reading a bit about
interstitial journaling and it has got me thinking that the principles could be applied nicely to note-taking. The reading was focused on intermittently making small short journal entries during transitions between activities, modes, tasks, etc. Not really a Zettelkasten thing. But it, along with @ctietze in a recent post, lead me to think differently about “interstitial”. Interstitial in terms of mixed in, to get all metaphoric, to follow a natural flow in the river of note making.
Incorporate more of the metadata inline the note text.
Been considering tagging vs keywords. Seems Luhmann thought there were 4 characteristics of a Zettelkasten.
He stated in Fabrication of Serendipity
1. specific system
2. card numbering rules
3. internal linking
4. comprehensive keyword index
Nowhere does he mention tags or categories of note.
- Links - an ontological relationship between notes
- Tags - a category relationship between notes
- Keywords - a taxonomical relationship between notes
Maybe it isn’t an either or question.
- Has anybody implemented a keyword system?
- Does anyone have tips for implementing an inline markup that is unobtrusive in the editor and could be nonexistent in the output?
- How about key phrases?
Please school me in my ignorance.
