"Knowledge Management Tools" / "Second Brain" / ZettleKasten (Obsidian, Zotero, Evernote etc)

When should we train our brain and when should we use a tool? Where do YOU draw the line?

I use mnemonics when browsing the web but there’s too much information to store it all. How to arrange all this?

Some examples on mixing an external brain with mnemonics:

  1. use a password manager… but ‘salt’ each password with a very quick to type mnemonic

  2. Use the browser history but tag with mnemonic tags, associating each bookmark with a bookmark you already have
