Daily Reads:

I’ve been on a binge watch of Zsolt V’s Personal Knowledge Management YouTube series. He’s the developer integrating the fantastic Excalidraw tool into Obsidian. Of more interest to me has been his philosophy around how he made the tools and now the tools are making him.

The videos have jolted (pun intended) me into taking some action. The reminder about Richard Feynman’s 12 favourite problems for example got me writing out my own areas of interest, and how I could possibly turn them into open ended questions that circumscribe my crazy reading habits into something more focused. I’ve toyed with the idea of a visual + textual note taking for a long time, and the latest videos from both Zsolt and Nicole van her Hoeven on the topic got me taking the first step in making it work, at least within my Obsidian vault.

Not much else being read 🙂
