A second try with Zettelkasten
I stumbled upon this site a couple of years ago when searching for a method that could help me processes and create a lastning value of all research I do as a journalist covering technology. The theories behind Zettelkasten struck a cord, I installed nvAlt and hit the ground running.
Only to find out that even tough I somewhere could understand the benefits with a Zettelkasten it took to much time to create, link and maintain my notes. So I started to look for another solution and found Devonthink. The autoclassify and other smart functions has served me good for a long time now, but I have an increasing feeling that I don't find the gold nuggets in my archive anymore.
I've kept an eye on the development of The Archive and have now decided to give the Zettelkasten method a second try. I've spent some time over the last week to read both the blog and a lot of the threads in the forum and think I this have gotten a better understanding of how a Zettelkasten and a Reference Management System works together, an understanding that I hope will make my second try more successful – but also a realization that leads to some questions on it's own. About citekeys, as one example. Or what RMS to use.
