zettelkasten talk 

as i'm officially a PhD student™ now, i thought it would be a good idea to officially start a zettelkasten: i don't want to get lost.

i read several posts from zettelkasten.de/, i got super motivated, and i stared writing and connecting some plain-text notes already.

as i've learned from being here: the notes are coming first, the automated system(s) will come later :merveilles:

@sejo the forum at zk dot de has a lot of really excellent threads on structure. lots of thought put into the sort of questions you will encounter in the first few hundred notes. helped me out a ton, though some of the users are quite opinionated so ymmv

i'll keep in mind that i can ask you about it! thank you!

@sejo I started using zettlr as a zettelkasten about 2 years ago but I find the lack of bidirectional linking an issue. I started applying similar principles to logseq 2 months ago and its going OK so far *for me*. What are you using for your zettelkasten and how are you using it?

@steve ooh those are interesting references, thanks!

right now i'm doing it "manually" / "posix-ly": writing in a text editor and getting aid re: other notes from grep, head, sed.
my plan is to observe first how i use this, what are my common patterns and where is the friction, to then start programming and automating.

in any case, there has been so much hype around obsidian around here that i'm also tempted to try it!
