Evergreen notes

It’s hard to write notes that are worth developing over time. These principles help:

  • Evergreen notes should be atomic... It’s best to create notes which are only about one thing
  • Evergreen notes should be concept-oriented
  • Evergreen notes should be densely linked
  • Prefer associative ontologies to hierarchical taxonomies
  • Write notes for yourself by default, disregarding audience
