๐Ÿ“How computers can enhance Zettelkasten method?

  1. Faster searching

    1. Search phrase in all notes
    2. Automatic backlinks
    3. Because of searching, we can find a note anywhere (and we still be able to find it later even without connection)
  2. Analyzing notes

    1. We can run analysis on our notes. e.g., what notes are referenced the most, what are disconnected clusters?
  3. Build graph of nodes

How can I simulate hierarchy?

Original Zettelkasten has both links and physical hierarchy (related notes were close together). How do I compensate for that in computers? (Folgezettel (notes sequence))

  • Do I need to? Use explicit links and structure cards.
