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.


@zacharius Also, Socrates worried about this:

And someone sent me this weird paper (PDF) from years ago, about writing everything down. Reminds me of GTD a bit too.

Still, I do believe in writing things down to get them off my mind. And I do find that writing itself helps consolidate thoughts. I suppose that's different from viewing it as reference material though.

I'm still split on how much to do by hand and how much to type.
