  • Ok. Evidence is piling up for the use of "Zettel". Perhaps, the question is better answered with an empirical approach? I'll start a poll.
  • I'd like to ask before anything I can recommend: What is the reason that so much accumulates? Could it be a case of Collector's Fallacy?
  • I see the problem with slip. But I am not sure if I need to correct my opinion: "I'd rather switch to slip than to Zettel." I don't use both but still see "Zettel" as more problematic than slip. Either way, you have to explain it via the metaphori…
  • Can you give us the purpose you pursue? E.g. to track the progress in an essay etc.?
  • @entropic said: I've found the workflow for adding linked references to have a bit of unnecessary friction. I may be missing something but it seems to me it would be really beneficial to keep the selected document active in the editor when you…
  • No, it doesn't come in because you still accumulate half-read, half-processed texts. It is still a form of Collector's Fallacy even if you know it. You miss the point that you can't know what you can use in the future. So you don't know if you are …
  • @Eurobubba said: I'd say 'notes' is pretty close to 'Notizen' but that and Zettel are two different concepts. If you're talking about an electronic ZK (as opposed to Luhmann's with literal slips of paper), you're already using Zettel metaphori…
  • @Eurobubba said: @sfast said: The problem I have with deciding in advanced what to process and what not is: You don't have any valuable information on how to decide. You just can decide in the context of a clear cut project. But th…
  • Perhaps, I have one issue here stemming from our interpretation differences: not just for fully digested notes The notes are fully digested and that is not what "abgeklärt" refers to. They are processed as notes but not evaluated for writing p…
  • I quoted him in the following context: @will said If I knew what part of which current document was key to future use, then I’d not need a Zettelkasten at all. (Think of the time savings with no digesting.) Opportunity costs are difficult to …
  • Mh. I think the main issue here is that we have a different approach on translating. I try to be as close to the phrases as I can get while you are willing to interpret in order to get the point across you see. That is also the reason why I refuse t…
  • @mediapathic said: I don't see the point of making a 2-way link, when a "link" is always just going to be a search on that UID string, so should bring up the referencer as well (unless one explicitly jumps to the "result in title" as opposed t…
  • @Eurobubba said: @sfast said: No. Luhmann stressed that he never touches a text twice if he is not forced to. He and me share the same reason: It is just not worth the time. Do you have a different understanding of what yo…
  • So, let me start from the backwards: Why do you translate " und eine Tempofrage" with "and keep moving"?
  • @mediapathic said: @sfast a quick question: I'm trying to come up with my own searchable distinction between structure notes and content. I know you use the Ü as a signifier of a structure note, is the 2 meaningful in any way? Is there a Ü1? …
  • @Vinho said @sfast: Do you ever want to assign a (perhaps new) tag to several notes at once? And if yes, how do you do it by replacing one string with another if you don't have a metadata label like "Tags: " in front of your tags? It is very…
  • I use this header: ID Title #hashtag1 #hashtag2 I don't need any mass changes other than replace one string with another. Therefore, the position of the metadata is not important.
  • I'd recommend to give us more detailed information about your setup. I think only a fraction of the users know about Kieran Healy’s social science setup. I certainly don't.
  • Structure notes are indeed table of contents @Will It looks like that you have a structure note that is orientated towards a book. In my opinion, it is a structure note. In your case with a bit lack of structure. Here are samples of mine. They ar…
  • @newzettelkid said But I will confess that I am struggling with that because I feel my reading pace is really fast compared to my writing pace. This is very normal and I would be very suprised if it is different for anybody. I solve your pr…
  • @Eurobubba said: @sfast said: There are only to types of notes left in my archive: structure notes and content notes. Well, those are two types of zettels. But surely there are also other types of notes. It's not only the z…
  • I use the ZKM for fiction writing. All the background search is basically identical with non-fictional writing. The difference is: Sometimes, it is just not true. (Or -- in philosophical terms -- has an imaginary truth maker instead of one in the re…
  • I'd like to challenge such an divide between so many different types of notes. There are only to types of notes left in my archive: structure notes and content notes. This is because I do different things with them. I connect and I write. But they a…
  • When it comes to that point you will be high on my list. At this moment your are on top because nobody I know would be as familiar as you with the topic.

  • @vvcorto said: Therefore: Barbell Method. Still makes no sense to name it this way IMHO. Just stick with slow/fast. Otherwise, great article. Please use arguments. I am open to them but you'll still have to make them.

Howdy, Stranger!
