how I use digital tools

Collecting my use cases so that I know for what I’m designing

Second Brain / Personal Knowledge Management / #on/PKM / Tools for Thought

Whatever it’s called, here’s how I use it:

  • Capture thoughts and write ideas
  • Capture links to explore later
  • File links away for future reference
  • Highlight words from around the internet
  • Research and create notes full of information and data
  • Stash information away for later (terpenes, domain info, disc golf)
  • Document notes from meetings (work, boards, intros, volunteering)
  • Organize work and manage projects
  • Create documents (climate career search, web3)
  • Keep logs of my activity (daily notes, server logs, mac logs)
  • Digital gardening // iterating on existing notes and ideas
