The key advantage of having my personal wiki

I can have any numbers of ideas without cluttering my mind and be able to move on and refocus no matter how deep or complex the idea was.

Radical shifts

  • results of rather unpleasant realization that the system currently used is either intrinsically limited and/or inefficiently used. Even realization that generated memories of struggle with managing information.
  • those main shifts seem to occur through
    • refactoring resulting in new addressing (see )
    • availability of software (with affordable skills and infrastructure required)
      • thus also the importance of having a sustainable and active community
