The Four Parts
A Capture System
This should be paper-based, or at least something that's always there and quick to use.
- a notebook
- index cards
- loose paper
A Reference System
This is where you put information about your sources. For books and papers Zotero is handy, although once again, the fact that I have to fire up this GUI-based program adds a little bit of overhead. The original system was just another box so I'm going to try something like that. Maybe a sub-folder…
The Slip Box
The original system was a wooden box with A6 paper. I'm using a static site with plain text (org-mode).
Something To Produce a Final Product
The system is aimed at writers, but I'm a computer programmer, and I think it might work with other types of output (like drawing) so it's really just having a way to produce something from your project.
