Most of my college papers were organized with bubble diagrams on a scrap paper like used envelopes ... Book notes are on post-its in books which I read into a text doc which eventually may make it into obsidian, although I have been really tempted to try a paper zettelkasten ... And my journals are still fountain pen on paper (dot grid...) and include a daily bullet to-do list ...

I tried a paper zettelkasten and didn't like it; there were some places I never figured out how to insert a thought and it drove me batty 😅 but bubble diagram one page notes were an amazing study tool for me during my master's program.

Why can’t we shift the conversation from analog vs digital to analog + digital? One of my favorite questions is how they can work together to offset the other’s weaknesses.

Truthfully every time I've tried it, the results felt subpar. Maybe now that AI OCR is getting better that will change!

I think my concern is more that I believe the "analog vs. digital" premise is the real distraction. I believe what is often missing in material on PKM topics is an expansive mind-set of "we" instead of the more preferred approach nowadays of "us vs. them." I have yet to see any PKM expert address this in a meaningful way, so I'm working through analogies in my own writing to work it out for myself.

A Stream Deck that inserts different emoji's is an efficient way for those with no artistic ability to add useful bullets.
