My journey of storing information

Content

Metrics for measuring information quality:

  • Discoverability
  • Distillation - How much of it is important
  • Coverage
  • Related Information Suppliance - Fighting unknowns unknowns
  • Applicability Narrow/Wide
  • Difficulty

Example of information storage:

  • Documentation
  • Tutorials
  • Tests
    • Are usually better than documentation
  • Wikis
    • Wikis
    • Digital Garden
      • Interconnected pages
      • BACKLINKS
    • Tables
      • Notion
  • Blogs
    • Are linear!!!
  • Nice to show how they cut our knowledge in horizontal and vertical slides
