  • 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

  • You may want to download their Windows app
  • If you use a cloud service like Dropbox, you can easily back up your notes
