What's your personal knowledge management system?

@ykgoon I would love to know your org-mode workflow and setup.

@ye I have one file for each:

- TODO (arranged GTD style)
- Miscellaneous records
- Exocortex; capturing active thoughts; weekly reviews
- Book of life: captured insights, book summaries, lessons, etc.

@ye Highlights all over the place, and an index to the Internet in my head

@ye evernote but thinking about switching to notion-hq. is prettier and seems to have features that allow for deeper and more interconnected note structures.

@ye I'm using Tiago's PARA extension of GTD.

I haven't started doing his full progressive summarization technique tho.

@coyotespike Hi! What note-taking tool are you using? I am not comfortable with Evernote. And, do you think this BASB is significantly better than other approaches?

@ye I'm using Org Mode in Emacs, actually! With a Chrome extension to capture quotes from articles.

I do think BASB is the best I have found. The PARA system, with GTD reviews, and progressive summarization, is really powerful.

@coyotespike Hmmm. Thanks. I have been looking for a robust PKM for some time now, the only barrier to adopt BASB is the $500 course fee.

@ye @coyotespike There are cheaper ways to learn BASB, e.g. subscribe to Praxis $10/month

@tasshin @coyotespike Does the Praxis blog contain all the essentials of BASB?

@ye @coyotespike more or less, but if you take that approach it's a DIY approach, you'll have to implement it yourself, whereas the course holds your hand and takes you step by step with exercises

@ye @coyotespike @dschorno full disclosure, i have worked with Tiago in the past and still do from time to time (including blogging for Praxis)

@tasshin @ye @coyotespike I noticed that on your site! Maybe just a little biased 😂
