    1. The one-sentence-summary compresses the summary to one sentence (or two). The title is a further compression of the content into a few words. Working on the one-sentence summary and the title is an act of learning itself. You cannot get any understanding of the Method without real content. See this video for further explanations: How to write good titles for your Zettelkasten

      In narrative inquiry I ask people to title the experience they shared after sharing. Similarly I write my own titles usually after the content of a blogpost or a notion. Although when it comes to the internal branching highlighted above I usually start with a temporary title, which captures the jumping off point from the originating note.

    2. he digital Zettelkasten, freed from physical limitations, offers a unique feature: You can flesh out ideas, look at them from different directions, apply different ways of analysis, and use theoretically infinite methods to explore the idea on a single note. As a result, the note grows in size, but then you can refactor it. You refactor the note, move the grown components as new ideas into new notes and make the parent note about the relationship between the new notes.

      I have this regularly, whenever I spend a bit of time on usually two or three related notes. Usually it annoys me because it sometimes feels like the branching goes faster than I can keep up with noting. That's from a 'production' perspective. Here I was aiming to finish a note, reducing the unfinished corpus by one, only to add a bunch of new beginnings to the heap to go through. The internal branching is a more positive phrasing for an effect I regularly treat as 'more work'. Good switch of perspective, as I have a mental image of external explosion that I can't contain, whereas internal branching is like fractals within the same general boundary. Good image.

    1. Why not work on improving a technical solution for Folgezettel?

      Reading this I realise I'm not using Folgezettel really, only linking back to a previous notion. There's some sequencing, esp when I create little 'trains' (a notion, a link to a more abstract notion, a link to a more detailed one, a link to an example). The forward linking I generally not do, except sometimes. L always did forward linking in the sense of placing the index card.

    1. In this respect, relational notions of a good quality of life, such as ‘buen vivir’ from Latin America (D'Alisa, Demaria, & Kallis, 2014; Gudynas, 2011; Hopkins, 2008), may be key to achieving long-term sustainable outcomes

    1. Chaque séance avait une durée de 15 à 20 minutes en moyenne ; un temps suffisant 

      questionnement personnel : qu'entendre par "un temps suffisant" ? Cela concerne t-il la durée nécessaire pour l'enfant pour comprendre et apprivoiser une notion ? Les sessions ont elles la même durée habituellement avec le professeur comme interlocuteur/ précepteur à la place du robot ? La notion reste t-elle de façon "durable" pour les enfants après l'avoir travaillée avec Nao ?

      Euclid's common notions appear to be grounds for many of Marx's arguments in Ch. 1, but also throughout the book.

      Near the beginning of Ch. 1 of the Elements Euclid lists them [PDF]:

      • Things that are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another (the Transitive property of a Euclidean relation).
      • If equals are added to equals, then the wholes are equal (Addition property of equality).
      • If equals are subtracted from equals, then the differences are equal (Subtraction property of equality).
      • Things that coincide with one another are equal to one another (Reflexive property).
      • The whole is greater than the part.

      Regarding the fifth, also see Aristotle, Metaphysics 8.6 [=1045a]; Topics 6.13 (=150a15-16);

      On the concept of the "whole-before-the-parts" (along with the "whole of the parts" and the "whole in the part"), also see Proclus, El. Theol., prop. 67.
