Networked Knowledge and Combinatorial Creativity

Networked Knowledge and Combinatorial Creativity | Libraries In the Middle | Scoop.it
How we choose to pay attention, and relate to information and each other shapes who we become, shapes our creative destiny and, in turn, shapes our experience of the world. And, in my mind, there’s nothing more important than that.

A little known hack from Japan to get your notebook organized

A little known hack from Japan to get your notebook organized | Libraries In the Middle | Scoop.it

The back of your notebook will act like a tag list or index. Every time you create a new entry at the front of the book you’re going to “tag” it.

For example let’s imagine you’re keeping a notebook for recipes and you just wrote down a Chinese recipe on the first page.

Next you’d go to the last page and create the tag ‘Chinese’ by writing it on the first line right next to the papers left edge.

Now you’d go back to the first page where the recipe is and on the exact same line as the ‘Chinese’ label you just wrote you’d make a little mark on the right edge.

You’d make this mark so that even when the notepad was closed the mark would be visible. After repeating this for various recipes you’d now have various tags visible on the notebooks edge.
