This is a response to Will's Zettel Sharing ... and the interesting interactions which are happening there.
I don't have a Zettelkasten, yet (not sure if I ever will have). I love to read what others are saying about their adventures. Reading the discussions, in that and other threads, sometimes makes my head hurt. I'm not sure if I'm smart enough to think so abstractly about such things. I admire all those here who share their thoughts about how they think about thinking.
I did not want to interrupt or hijack that discussion, but I would like to share my initial reaction: "What would a Shared Zettelkasten look like?".
I think that I understand, from what I've read here, and elsewhere, that a Zettelkasten is a personal database, where one keeps notes and builds upon research and thoughts which are read and created while living life. The hope is to generate and discover new and interesting things while revisiting and exploring new and unfamiliar territory.
The basis of my question is, why should everyone have to start from zero and build upon things that they happen to discover. The "standing on the shoulders of giants" resonates with me. I'm just wondering if there is some way to share a Zettelkasten (or many). Maybe this does not make any sense. Maybe this already exists (Yahoo groups, Discord, Discourse, Reddit, etc.)?
Just wondering if anyone else has any similar thoughts.
