        I’ve been thinking about this since i found out about zettelkasten method developed by Niklas Luhmann (on a comment on this excellent post You are your tools).

        What I’ve come to realize is data organization in libraries and even by pre-compute dictionary designers could be very insightful on how we create indexes on data.

        Reading more papers about data organization pre-computers is on my todo list, has one else explored this area?

          This particular line of questioning caused me to discover the idea of commonplacing, and the existence of Commonplace Books, which in turn impacted how I take notes and how I collect and organize my own thoughts into a knowledge base.

          The main components are indexing, headings, and purposeful marginalia.

          I have a digital knowledge base (in the form of plain text files that I have recently migrated to a github wiki) that is mostly technical / professional related, and an analog pen-and-paper knowledge base (in the form of a commonplace book) that is more personal interests.

            A commonplace book is exactly what i was looking for, i’ve started using a mac app NVAlt for note taking and it’s amazing search and reduced the need for creating indexes manually.

            But i still want to try writing things down on a physical notebook! will definitely give John Loke’s method a try.
