Cleaning house

At last I’m getting around to organizing my thinking and research notes and apps into a connected framework. I tend to work too fast, and neglect categorizing and organizing my sources of inspiration as I go.

I’m experimenting with Obsidian and am impressed by the mapping and tagging features that let me connect my thoughts and sources in different ways, simultaneously. I’ll update everyone on my progress in a few weeks.
