    1. GJRobert commented May 31, 2023 Currently I'm building two Digital Gardens: https://aiuanyu.vercel.app (namely "Love for all languages in Taiwan", posts and notes for promoting knowledge about languages and writing) https://imazingrace.vercel.app (namely "Imazing Grace of information technology and internet", sharing posts and notes about softwares) Both in various languages in Taiwan, not only in Mandarin (Chinese), but also in Hakka, Taigi.

    1. 使用 Heptabase 管理数字花园

      Wow! Heptabase digital garden is possible with this plugin from Jiang (GitHub) 數位花園 網站 部落格 blog website

      Try using Heptabase; learn of its pros and cons against Obsidian #todo

    2. 这和我运用的卡片笔记法理念一致,通过不断的积累、迭代卡片完成文章的输出,而不是一来就面对一张白纸一步到位完成创作。

      Couldn't agree more! Digital Garden vs Blogging: key difference

    3. 博客 vs 数字花园 数字花园的理念与我正在使用的卡片笔记法、Heptabase 的设计哲学更加贴近,所以放弃了持续 1 年的博客,改用数字花园的方式维护自己的个人站点,下面会详细介绍一下原因。

      I concur!

    4. 尝试过 HUGO 和 Notion 等方式、研究了 obsidian publish,也实践用 Notion 维护了一年的博客,但一直没有找到比较理想的方案。

      想知道這些其他方案的缺點在哪。我自己用的是免費的Obsidian digital garden來Publish部落格。

    1. One of my favorite ways that creative people communicate is by “working with their garage door up,” to riff on a passage from Robin Sloan (below). This is the opposite of the Twitter account which mostly posts announcements of finished work: it’s Screenshot Saturday; it’s giving a lecture about the problems you’re pondering in the shower; it’s thinking out loud about the ways in which your project doesn’t work at all. It’s so much of Twitch. I want to see the process. I want to see you trim the artichoke. I want to see you choose the color palette. Anti-marketing.

      other things that came to mind:

      • social/collective annotation like Hypothesis
      • publishing notes online through digital gardens, etc
      • online journaling

    1. https://christiantietze.de/posts/2020/05/digital-gardening/

      Christian Tietze's take on digital gardens from 2020-05-19, when they were still very nascent as a topic breaking into the mainstream.

    2. The summary of Hoy’s post makes a point similar to Caulfield’s piece, but more pronounced: the wide-spread adoption of the blog format killed gardens. The dichotomy is the same; here, we also have a causality of demise.

      The blog killed online gardens in some sense because of it's time-ordered stream of content. While it was generally a slower moving stream than that of social media platforms like Twitter which came later, it was still a stream.

    1. It should be recognized that these basic note types are very different than the digital garden framing of 📤 (seedbox), 🌱 (seedling), 🪴 (sapling), 🌲 (evergreen), etc. which are another measure of the growth and expansion of not just one particular idea but potentially multiple ideas over time. These are a project management sort of tool for focusing on the growth of ideas. Within some tools, one might also use graph views and interconnectedness as means of charting this same sort of growth.

      Sönke Ahrens' framing of fleeting note, literature note, and permanent note are a value assignation to the types of each of these notes with respect to generating new ideas and writing.

    1. No gardener can become a good gardener without getting over the fear of pruning, and no good gardener can become a great gardener without approaching pruning as part of the craft. Chop, whack, snip. It hurt, to see everyone almost exposed to their roots, not knowing whether they’d make it or not–driving home the guilt that was admitting that I had not taken good care of them. If they didn’t succeed, it would be my fault.

      Een mooie analogie of het nu om notities gaat, je tuin, je werk of iets anders. Je moet durven weglaten. Durven verwijderen

    1. The Garden of Forking Paths

      El Jardín de los Senderos que se Bifurcan.

      After reading the short story once more, I can't see how it relates to this context beyond the title. Sure, it's a garden and has paths, but the ideas behind it have nothing to do with how we build knowledge, it is all about how we perceive time and potentially how we interpret the many-worlds theory.

    2. In the stream metaphor you don’t experience the Stream by walking around it and looking at it, or following it to its end. You jump in and let it flow past. You feel the force of it hit you as things float by. It’s not that you are passive in the Stream. You can be active. But your actions in there — your blog posts, @ mentions, forum comments — exist in a context that is collapsed down to a simple timeline of events that together form a narrative.

      This describes exactly what frustrates me the most about online discussions. Especially on Twitter, it is so hard to build coherence on previous (and future) insight.

    1. The word florilegium literally means a gathering of flowers — flos (flowers) and legere (to gather).

      Is this the origin of what people have recently started calling digital gardens?

    1. I spin out notes and potential Notions from my project notes, as I encounter things in my work where some idea or thought jumps out. Those potential Notions I put in a folder called proto notions, inside my GotFP

      I just include these initial thoughts / ideas in the same Obsidian vault as my permanent notes. I think of them as "permanent notes in training" or, as some people have started calling them, seedlings (in the language of the digital gardening crowd).

    1. Curation comes before a chronological list. The chronological list is still there, but when you click "all articles" instead of numbered pages, all of the articles on that page are visible. If I had thousands of posts that might be a problem, but with my fairly small catalog the pages loads fast and you can scroll through it easily.
    2. The idea of a "blog" needs to get over itself. Everybody is treating writing as a "content marketing strategy" and using it to "build a personal brand" which leads to the fundamental flawed idea that everything you post has to be polished to perfection and ready to be consumed.

      Het is inderdaad het dilemma waar ik mee worstel. Enerzijds wil ik het liefste een Frankopedia maken van mijn site. Iets waar ik losse notities op post, waar ik bookmarks kwijt kan en ik zelf een grootverbruiker ben van de zoekbalk. Maar anderzijds vind ik het lastig te combineren met de meer gepolijste artikelen die ik er wil publiceren. Die meer gericht zijn op het publiek en minder voor mijn eigen second brain

    3. What makes a garden is interesting. It's personal. Things are organized and orderly, but with a touch of chaos around the edges.

      Mooie quote. "a touch of chaos around the edges"

    1. The digital garden is "a space for collecting (and connecting) the dots." You can and should link to other writing and references beyond your own to build up your network of knowledge.

      Digital Gardens, Commonplace books. Ik blijf het een fascinerend concept vinden. Het vereist aandacht en langdurig bijhouden om de waarde te vinden. Dat is wat mij persoonlijk nog tegenhoudt.

    1. The purpose (for me) in these bookmarks is to identify a space (or process) between Hypothesis and my IndieWeb commonplace site. I want to read, review, and share the link, salient quotes, and perhaps some context for others. The use of Hypothesis helps as I have another series of links behind to “show my work.”

      Bookmarks op je site zijn één van de meest traditionele vormen van bloggen en je eigen website vorm geven. Inderdaad kan Hypothesis helpen in het proces om de links van context te voorzien, ze bij elkaar te houden én via de Hypothesis API ze op allerlei manieren in je eigen systeem te krijgen. In welke vorm ze uiteindelijk in je eigen commonplace site/digital garden terecht komen, dat is aan je eigen creativiteit. Wat ik erg hoopgevend vind, is dat Hypothesis best wat metadata opslaat van de annotatie, wat weer mogelijkheden geeft voor andere dwarsverbanden, backlinks en digitaal "tuinieren".
