    1. after decades of using the Zettelkasten it might become impossible to access it from your place at the desk. To mitigate this issue, it is recommended to use normal (thin) paper instead of (thick) index cards.

      After having used his zettelkasten for 26 years, Luhmann mentions that he chose normal paper as his substrate for note taking over thicker index cards to save on storage space and particularly to make it possible to keep more material closer to his desk rather than need to store it at larger distances within his office. This allows more slips per drawer and also tends to have an effect on productivity with respect to daily use and searching.

      One might need to balance this out with frequency of use and slip wear, as some slips in his box show heavy use and wear, especially at the top.

    1. I am Joaquín,who bleeds in many ways.The altars of Moctezuma                I stained a bloody red.        My back of Indian slavery                Was stripped crimson        from the whips of masters        who would lose their blood so pure        when revolution made them pay,standing against the walls of Retribution.

      I believe Rodolfo Gonzales uses this powerful imagery of a Native American back bloodied from the whips of imperialist masters to show how strong and unbreakable his people are. They stand free today after having endured centuries of abuse and mistreatment.

      Interesting advice...

      Were notebooks of the time generally poorly bound and prone to falling apart? The focus on longevity of notes is interesting here...

    1. Katherine J. Wu, Ph.D. (2021, December 29). I wrote (last week!) about the future of boosting—How many more shots will we need? Will they all contain the same ingredients? Ultimately, it depends on our immune systems, how the virus looks, and how much of the virus is around. 1/3 https://t.co/bJKYyriE9a [Tweet]. @KatherineJWu. https://twitter.com/KatherineJWu/status/1476249881073303552
