Zettelkasten seems to be an information organizing method (or MindTrafficGeometry which is like wiki in the sense of being a dense hypertext of SmallPiecesLooselyJoined but unlike wiki in that these items are indexed by an abstract id number, partly based on a date, as opposed to ConcretePageNames.
So in that sense it's more like a blog. And depends on search rather than guessing the names of topics.

The Zettelkasten process has three types of notes...
- Fleeting Notes (temporary, grab the main points)
- Literature Notes (rewrite them in your own words to help remember and understand)
- Permanent Notes (extract, by rewriting, from your literature notes, each idea as a separate item, written as if for a third party, to understand independent of seeing original context, but with reference/link back to it. You are turning notes into self-contained units.)
I wonder if this should be joined with my thoughts on ShearingLayers ... this pipeline to distil knowledge into reusable chunks.
