What content-coding convention do you use in the naming?
I am a newbie. Please be gentle.
I came to The Achieve via How to Take Smart Notes: One Simple Technique to Boost Writing, Learning, and Thinking – for Students, Academics and Nonfiction Book Writers by Sönke Ahrens. Highly recommended. Here he talks about 4 types of notes. Spot notes, Reference Notes, Literature Notes, and Formal Notes.
- Spot notes - Quick jots on any old scrap of paper. Usually rewritten as Formal notes and/or trashed
- Reference Notes - biographical data of sources
- Literature Notes - Quotes (copied)
- Formal notes - these are the meat of the Zelletkasten (original ideas)
How do you handle these distinct types of notes? In titles or via tags? Single DB or multiple DBs? Putting a signifier in front of a note's title? Do you use a content-coding convention with the names? This way or some other way?
