You second brain fools want the first brain only for processing and the second for storage. But I ask you, what would a computer be without caches? With no way to quickly retrieve often used and prioritiesed information.

Such is the wisdom of Anki. To build a local(first brain) cache for info we want retrieved without having to query the second. To better induce and invite a state of flow.


@zacharius Do you have a meta-pattern for determining a batch of info will benefit from Anki cacheing, or is it always obvious from your workflow?
