Zettelkasten is a neat concept. One drawback in my newest fascination, Curio, is that it doesn’t support hierarchical tags.

If you can impose a hierarchy on tags, they become an alternate organization for notes, not just a way to clump things together.

The world is a curious place, though. How can it possibly be that if I Google “law enforcement zettlekasten” I come up dry? You would think that would be a field that would drive all kinds of relational note-taking products.

Instead, I find articles like this one, https://www.baltimoresun.com/maryland/baltimore-city/bs-md-ci-lotus-notes-20180808-story.html, about Baltimore trying to graduate from Lotus Notes.

Interesting to speculate, that ragtag nerdy rebels could muster more advanced tools for fighting a war of information than the police.

Excellent article indeed.

Coincidentally (or not), Paul J. Miller just wrote a post on the IQ forum, linking to the same article.

In particular, he explains how the new Related Items links, available in InfoQube v114, enables the Zettelkasten method to be implemented:


Thanks Paul !
