Bigger Ideas

Platform agnostic ideas that may help your PKM process. They may feature a software, but I think they apply to more than a single platform.

Jeffery takes a look at a hybrid antinet and logseq system based on work by Scott.

Found a vault tour from Brandon Boswell. I always enjoy seeing what others are doing and how they’re organizing their data.

Justin talks about using Obsidian or Notion for your task management. The big issue he finds is all the decisions you have to make to get a “system” setup. When you use an off the shelf system they make these design/setup decisions for you.

Why aliases are an important part of your PKM system. Obsidian handles most of the desires here.

Some talk about digital vs analogue note systems.

Heard of Shortform…here is a walkthrough on how to use it for your research assistant.

Jaime goes into extensive detail on how he manages projects for large teams.

Reddit user Odd-Job_Man is wondering about using an analogue system with Obsidian.

How would you combine an analogue system with your e-reader?

Something Interesting

Because we’re all lookin to expand our minds a bit.

Theresa A. Yugar was a “terrible” nun, or men were misogynistic and tried to keep her down.


The Sweet Setup took a look at Matter on the web.

Bike was released and Macstories reviewed it.

Timing is now “link-friendly” which means a tool like Hook can be used with it.

DEVONthink To Go updated to 3.5 which improves the text editor and some quality of life improvements as you navigate the application.

Here are a bunch of Craft workflows.

How about linking Craft and iCal.

Craft version 2.2 updated with revamped share pages that make them look much nicer for those you’ve shared pages with.

I did a video on Syncing your Obsidian Vault for free with Github.

Bryan shows off the Media Extended plugin for Obsidian as he uses it to take video notes.

I put together a video on using Obsidian and Things 3 together.

Yup I use affiliate links sometimes to support the newsletter. If it’s on Amazon, it’s an affiliate link for sure.
