Digital garden

See: personal wiki, personal knowledge management

The first time I heard about digital garden is from Maggie Appleton’s tweet.

From Joel Hooks:

The phrase “digital garden” a metaphor for thinking about writing and creating that focuses less on the resulting “showpiece” and more on the process, care, and craft it takes to get there.

I’ve always fascinated by the idea of personal knowledge management where we should have our own wiki, things to search to when we need something and the concept of digital garden interest me. Consuming information is easy. But managing and organizing them is another story.

Tom Critchlow describe digital garden as less performative version of blogging.

Digital garden is where you seed your ideas, connect the dots between them and have meaningful connection that grows your knowledge. Garden is not a place to throw notes and forgetting them. It’s a place to store your Evergreen notes and someday can become your [[ Second brain ]].
