Abram recently wrote up the Zettelkasten system for notetaking while doing research. Do you have an opinion on an alternative system, and if so, what is it?
Things you might optionally include but should not let the lack of preclude answering:
How the system works
Plusses and minuses of the system
Who or what problems you think it works especially well and poorly for
Comparisons to other notetaking systems.
Your final judgement of the system.
