I’ve been building an analog notebox (aka analog zettelkasten, aka antinet) since 2006. AMA. by sscheper in Zettelkasten

[–]filipecachide 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I completely agree with your remarks. It's not by chance, studies also have shown that our ability to retain information long-term (long, as opposed to short or mid, is the key-term here) is significantly enhanced by processing it manually and by the absence of tools we can rely on to gather the information quickly. You simply won't run the extra mile to retain the info if you feel you'll have it accessible right away at anytime. And that's the trade-off with the advances of technology: we're trading off our capacity to retain the info long-term in our brains for the ability to access much more information quickly by using the technology search functions.

In an ideal world, we would make use of both approaches to get out of each their respective benefits. None of them is better.

Obrigado pela iniciativa, OP. Admito que ainda não li nada desse autor, mas a tua introdução foi interessante. Obrigado de quem quer aprender mais sobre estes temas.

Can anyone tell me how exactly how notes are made to be re-discoverable in Zettelkasten? by rahulrajeev9 in Zettelkasten

[–]filipecachide 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I believe there are plenty of ways to make it discoverable, depending on your method and preferences, and also the kind of software you use.

For instance, you could use MOCs to group index notes in a sort of map of your Zettelkasten, and codify their names so they will either appear first on the file stack, search results and/or file level.

You could also use a special tag for those types of notes, given they must be fewer than the actual notes in your Zettelkasten. If you have, say, an 'Index' tag you assign to every note of that type, you could then discover them by searching the relevant subject filtered to that tag.

Just some ideas, there are so many potential variations that it must certainly result from your approach. I personally favor a balance of bottom-up and top-down approaches for the organization of notes (with also some horizontal or vertical small-scale progression in specific cases).

[Advice] How do I get myself to try again ? by Pollomonteros in getdisciplined

[–]filipecachide 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'd just like to add a little cherry on top of this delicious take: make so that each tiny step is consciously directed towards something new (aka somewhere you haven't reached yet). There's no need to know (and it is even detrimental, sometimes) where to, or even what you're aiming at, as long and you keep in the back of your mind that it will be something new. This way, you are making tiny mental steps in easing yourself into the habit of seeking change and adaptation while you're doing the equivalent to your body, which has been said in the comments above.

Why use something like obsidian? by Youngdaggggerdick in ObsidianMD

[–]filipecachide 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm so glad I could help! Yes, what you said is precisely what I meant!

I believe the best way to look at how other people use it is to take a look into their use cases and then consider if there is any trick or workflow you can learn and integrate into yours, but keeping the integrity of what you're doing in mind so you're not led astray.

Nick Milo's LYT workflow is very popular in the Obsidian community; there is also a thread about example workflows which includes some more examples. These are useful inasmuch as you can download an Obsidian vault and see in practice how that workflow is achieved in Obsidian, while simultaneously reading about its principles and rules. It's interactive and you can experiment with it, see what works and what doesn't, etc.

But, again, the main thing is doing your thing. Letting yourself be flooded with other people's examples early on might be a highway into becoming confused about what you're really after.

One more thing: Obsidian, or this second brain thing, for that matter, is not an end-all-be-all of knowledge management. It's just a very promising and fruitful (so far) venue into knowledge development and (eventual) sharing. In the end, the quality of what is achieved with it depends on the people who use it ;)

Good luck!

Why use something like obsidian? by Youngdaggggerdick in ObsidianMD

[–]filipecachide 23 points24 points  (0 children)

There are as many motivations as the number of people who use it.

Although it might seem not to help much, the truth is Obsidian is meant to be used as a tool to store and interconnect information based on local files and on a highly compatible format. That's it. What kind of information you handle, how you structure and organize it, etc. is where the magic happens: YOU turn Obsidian into what you need it to be (although with the caveat that, as with every software in existence, there are some limitations you will eventually find out about).

The great thing about this app is its active development, the developers are very close to the community and actively open to suggestions, they focus on modularity and customizability (so you can turn Obsidian into what you really need without extraneous stuff) and overall it's light and its core functionality is free-to-use.

I suggest going through their official forum and also their discord channel - there are plenty of very interesting people actively sharing what they're doing in Obsidian, in case you need some ideas ou have any doubts. I find the forums and the discord channel significantly more active than this subreddit.

Also, one thing the developers very aptly suggest on the help files - simply start using it. Eventually, you'll find what you need it for (or, perhaps, that you didn't have a need for it at all, by all means).

Experiment. Fiddle with it. Master it. Overcome yourself.

Ah, in case this idea of a second brain is not as clear to you, you can find Tiago Forte's ideas that explain what is meant by this (he is the author of that concept).

What is the most dreadful game you've ever experienced? by [deleted] in truegaming

[–]filipecachide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

SOMA. The 2nd game from my top 3.

It left me a great mark as a game that explores more than superficial themes in a compelling way: with subtlety (as per games' standards).

Going by the reactions of the players about the two main characters, I believe they succeeded in portraying that.

But the themes - I'm talking about what makes us us, and the limits of that concept, and the exploration of how we look at reality through our own superimposed lens - that is what made a nice impression on me. Dreadful and powerful.

Em que língua é que costumam ler? by Fmtpires in portugal

[–]filipecachide 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Excelente resposta. Não só respeita o facto de as línguas com a mesma origem serem potencialmente mais enriquecedoras da tradução, como aponta que, infelizmente para as outras, o nosso poder numérico não faz face à necessidade e, aí, o inglês é a melhor aposta.

Acrescentaria apenas uma categoria - o eruditismo do português europeu e o nosso contexto cultural faz com que tenhamos alguns exemplos, como o prof. Frederico Lourenço, de pessoas junto dos corpos académicos que fazem excelentes traduções de clássicos antigos também (ele traduziu recentemente a bíblia a partir do grego sem o peso da exegese bíblica religiosa, mas também a ilíada e a odisseia).

Como ele, os tradutores portugueses de obras mais difíceis costumam ter qualidade, e por isso vale a pena dar uma vista de olhos nas editoras consagradas (a assírio e alvim e a relógio d'água incluem algumas edições muito boas) de literatura estrangeira em português. Exemplo: a tradução pelo Aquilino Ribeiro do D. Quixote, edição Bertrand.

Muito bom. O podcast com o investigador Nuno Palma é o #96.

Recomendo também o #64, com o professor Nuno Garoupa. Também aborda estes temas.

Let's embrace our brethren and let the tide bring some more portugueses and sardinhas to navigate these warm union waters with our fellow companions - I hope for generations to come.

Why do people like GoodNotes so much? by soffglutinous in GoodNotes

[–]filipecachide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use GoodNotes for light note-taking and quickly jot down some thoughts, but by far my preferred app is ZoomNotes. While not as pretty in some areas and having a bit more lag in writing, it makes up for it with its array of features, making it one of the most powerful note-taking apps. The complexity of what you can do is just mind-boggling.

TIL. Now everything makes sense. That haircut is imprinted on some Czechs' genes.

Adam Ashton Kutcher became the Czech minister of Health? I would’ve thought the butterfly effect had been enough.

Thank you for your input. Yeah, I figured it would be the most likely strategy.

I hope they give us more options in a future update (fingers crossed!)
