About this site

Hi! I'm Toby Rogers. Welcome to my personal slipbox. This whole site probably doesn't make a lot of sense if you've found your way here by accident, so here's a bit of context.

I've been capturing my thoughts and ideas in various note-taking tools for years, but I've never really put them to good use. I've been a victim of the collector's fallacy and have built up a huge archive of digital information that's gathering virtual dust.

After reading about The Zettelkasten method, I decided to try and re-ignite my note-taking by building my own knowledge management system using the same ideas. I initially set up my slip box in Evernote, but I've decided to make it public via this Gitbook-powered site. Why? Because I'm a firm believer in the value of "working with the garage door up" and inviting feedback into the creative process.

The notes on this site are living "packets of value" that I'm using to create other content, but if other people find them useful then that's okay too.
