MY FIRST EXPOSURE to snippets of knowledge on a screen came to me via Scripting News written by Dave Winer. Twenty years later, [nuggets] of information drop onto my mobile screens through apps like Feedly, Inoreader, and Readwise.
I think it's important to focus on small snippets that point into deep troughs of information. And it's most important to follow [deep thinkers]. I use curated lists, often powered by RSS, always cross-pollinated with suggestions of trust agents.
I've also started watching what artificial intelligence can do for me. For example, Feedly's Leo AI suggested I look at database schema.
“Creating a single source of truth for enterprise-level data is a complex, daunting, multiphase process for any organization and usually includes assessment and database schema conversion.” -- Christi M. Liebe, CIO Review
"Digital Transformation in Logistics" is an article in CIO Review that triggered a Feedly alert about personal knowledge management for me. Feedly gave me the article without any of the window dressing and also highlighted a specific paragraph that the AI thought I should read first.
Enable enterprise-level visualization and reporting.
I know it's important to have your schema sorted in order to ensure your Personal Knowledge Management system works well. In my case, it's down to hashtags in the first instance and backlinks when the content drops into Roam Research, my Zettelkasten.
