Evergreen Notes

Topic:: note taking


Evergreen note taking is a style of note taking associated with networked though. Evergreen notes, like an evergreen tree, are 'designed' to accumulate usefulness over time


For me Evergreen Notes evolve from a loose 4 stage process

blank placeholder pages with no information that may one day grow into an evergreen or maybe never sprout

the brain dump stage

sense is being made out of the brain dump and a structure is emerging

well on its way to being a true Evergreen Note and at a stage where it could be understood by the outside world

It seems to me that for a note to get to an evergreen it needs to be a bit of a volunteer tomato. A note that just keeps coming back to you, it sticks in your brain almost as if it's volunteering.
