Thanks for pointing this. Notekeeping is a very personnal process anyway. In my opinion he gave up on recording every thoughts because the software wasn't up to par with his specific structuration technique. (I do think that almost every one will have a different way to structure his external mind so that it is useful for him/her, generalized software will be frustrating).

I do record almost all my thinking. I use a very simple software called "the guide" (very lightweight outliner) and also use a mix of chronology and concept maps (basically mapping by concepts until the leaves, where each entry/page is stamped with date).

There was interesting ideas in the book (but it does look like a sample from a notebook :-)). I'll definitely take something out of it, starting with an attempt at collating my dozen of files into a global system.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
