      Yet another PKM Guru channel. A mixture of (he says) Tiago Forte (BASB, CODE), zettelkasten, and PKM.

      Uses Craft, Canva, Figma, Spotify (for ambient focus).

      He's actively creating/using some of the words and definitions of others, but also creating his own "system" definition. (hubs, etc.) He redefines Forte's C.O.D.E. to give it his own spin: Capture, Connect, Create Share.

      He's got a subtle proselytizing Christian underlying message. Mentions Bible. Has hat with word "WRSHP". "Adding value to someone else's life" by sharing. Personal conversation is important to him (proselytizing). Speaking at his church about what "God has put in his heart."

      Turning notes into "diamonds"

      There's an outline of a system here, but he doesn't show actual practice, which is possibly the most important part, otherwise it may be unusable theory. To be able to do this system, I think, one would need to already be conversant in what is going on generally in the space or have Forte's system under control. By this point, what is Wheeler's real contribution other than a small example?

    1. The Compass of Zettelkasten Thinking.

      Notice the naming/productization of this idea: The Compass of Zettelkasten Thinking which Fei-Ling Tseng labels a "method" in the following line.

      The comments on the piece seem to underline this.

      The general idea is also far from new, so people are obviously ignoring the history of the space as they productize it.

    1. I never want to be one of those people who who write extensively about note-writing but rarely have a serious context of use.

      She's probably right that too many" influencers" in the space don't have actual context for use.

      Love that she links to Andy Matuschak's admonishment about this...

    1. and link me to a paid course, no doubt

      I will agree that there are far too many "influencers" and "gurus" out there selling something in the note taking space. Almost none of them know what the hell they're talking about.
