Hey Ornella, as promised a small introduction into the world of personal knowledge management (PKM):

  • PKM helps us collect, classify, save, search, find, and share information
  • By taking atomic notes and densely linking them we can come to new ideas
  • There are many PKM tools available, each very advanced and functionality-rich in their own way
  • The easiest, and cheapest, way to get started with PKM is by downloading Obsidian
  • You may want to download their Windows app
  • If you use a cloud service like Dropbox, you can easily back up your notes
  • I think you may enjoy this article on PKM for researchers
Thank you for reading! Remember when the Internet was full of whimsy, creativity, and serendipity? I'm curious to hear your thoughts, so feel free to say hello.
