Scott Scheper vs Sascha Fast - Who will survive the upcoming ultimate zettle battle?

Dear Zettlers,

@scottscheper and I are going to have a long-form discussion about wether digital or analog is the one and only true incarnation of the Zettelkasten.

Just kidding. We will just have a nice talk about this topic.

If you have any whishes, ideas, questions etc. you are welcome to post them.

Live long and prosper

  • So, no naked guys fighting like antic greek pugilists in a pool of mud with music and dancers and John Cena ? How disappointing. I was ready to take everyone's bets :( Life is so much funnier in my head.

    But I have questions about paper Zettelkasten:

    • How to compensate the lack of a full search tool ?
    • How do you update informations ? Isn't it tedious ?
    • What are the advantages over the digital Zettelkasten ?
    • In which cases choosing digital or paper Zettelkasten is advantageous ?
  • @Loni I was expecting a colorful intense fight with heavy metal music. Guess nyeow.

    A few questions:

    • Where do they overlap?
    • Where do they differ?
    • What are their limitations?
  • Scott likes to talk about how Sasha (and Ryan Holiday and Sonke Ahrens and the Obsidian folks) have no clue and that he's the true zettelkasten prophet so it will be interesting to see if he can defend his ideas. I'm not sure that I want to listen to a 3+ hour conversation but hope it goes well.

  • Ha! You will disappointed regarding the adversarial nature of the talk. But you will be pleasantly suprised that there is quite some content embedded.
