LYT Kit 7 - NEW Version Sep 13th!

I don’t understand your question. Please explain:

  1. what you mean by “this method”;
  2. what gives you the impression I find “this method” more impressive than IMF.

I may have misunderstood your comment, but I was referring to:

Just to make myself clear:

Nick’s IMF kit is impressive indeed, and a lot of people seem to find it useful, so I have no quarrels with nor criticisms about it.

lizardmenfromspace seems to have embarked on a megaproject to explain how to set up a zettelkasten and all the intricacies that (can) go with it. It is also an impressive project.

When I wrote " There is one that’s even more impressive" I meant it in a jocular way, not as a judgment of either of the 2 projects. I certainly did not mean to offend anybody, if I have, I apologise.

Thanks, Klass. My question was sincere since I haven’t used either yet. I have downloaded the IMF files and plan to play with it this weekend.

No problem, I knew you were sincere :smile:

Hi everbody,
I am quite new here and I downloaded and played around with both, the ICM from this thread (mentioned as " Nickmilo Obsidian Starter Kit ") and the IMF.

Is the IMF another approach than the ICM? I am trying to get my head around all of the different methodologies mentioned in different threads and it becomes a bit overwhelming right now :smiley:

I want to say they are the same thing and IMF in this post is just his more developed version.

I’m quite interesting in learning more about this framework. Could you give us more information about the numbering scheme for the maps of content and how it works?

There is a brief explanation of it in the 040 Interests MOC.md note which also serves as a good example of how to use it. You can also read more about it on the wiki Dewey Decimal Classification since it’s pretty standard.

@nickmilo, I’m really interested in this approach. I have a couple of questions. I apologize if they’ve been answered elsewhere, or in the example itself. There’s a lot there to process and think about.

I see that you use the _p prefix for folders associated with projects. Within the _pHabits folder, you have a number of different kinds of notes, including evergreen notes and examples. What I am curious about is the fate of a “project” if and when it becomes completed. Would you then move those notes out of the project folder?

If not, is there a distinction between evergreen notes that sit in the root folder, and those that sit in project folders?

As well, what’s the distinction between the 001 Projects folder and 100 Projects MOC? Is it just that the 100 Projects MOC lists completed projects?

Thanks!

What I am curious about is the fate of a “project” if and when it becomes completed. Would you then move those notes out of the project folder?

Yes you’re thinking about it the right way. In fact, that “project” is done. I just kept the folder after the fact to show how a person could use folders for projects.

Now that we can link our thoughts, I have found less of a need for many project folders. But there are still instances where I like to have a siloed folder in the sidebar. Like for a business endeavor for example.

what’s the distinction between the 001 Projects folder and 100 Projects MOC? Is it just that the 100 Projects MOC lists completed projects?

Yes, you’re right. For this version, I wanted to show examples of the flexibility in how a person could use a special note for active projects. (I’m personally not a fan of the double-up, so the 001 Projects note is gone in the upcoming LYT Kit v4)

What does LYT stand for?

“Linking Your Thinking” (which is what the IMF has been doing). The LYT system uses links to provide a framework for your notes. The versioning will continue. So the next version will the LYT Kit v4.

Thank you @nickmilo for blowing my mind and keeping me up at night thinking :upside_down_face: Having looked at Obsidian a few days ago after a member of Official Oxygen User Group declared he was putting all his code in Obsidian, I can see it can be more than a snippet repository, but it has the potential to change the world. Just thinking how efficient the whole planet would be if we only took notes and linked our ideas. That just gives me goose bumps. I believe Obsidian will change the world!

Do you have a glossary of acronyms? For example, IMF.

As I am just getting started, is there a basic document to help me decide which system to start out with and the pros and cons of going with each?

I will become a supporter on my next web site. btw, your dark theme web site works for me :slight_smile:

For 81 years this man has amazing energy and lucid thinking. I watched the interview , plus a bunch of his other videos, and see he coined the terms “transclusion, virtuality, and intertwingularity”, some of which I see used here.

I found this history of Xanadu.

Does a glossary of these terms exist?

@nickmilo Any updates on when LYT will be available? I’m finally getting around to organizing my notes and, while IMF v3 is great, I would love to use the latest and greatest thinking!

Hey thanks for your interest. I’m guessing it’ll be out in two weeks, with some tutorial videos as well
