So, I’ve been thinking (dangerous, I know). Off the top of my head, I’d say the two most common answers to “where do you maintain your reference materials” are:
- Evernote (or similar)
- Dropbox (iCloud, Google Drive, etc)
I’ve been trying to simplify my buckets and only use what is necessary. While I like having mostly markdown files as my reference, I’m feeling compelled to spice things up a bit (due to my new leadership roles).
I also took stock of my subscriptions to see what I could streamline. I realized that I might be able to move my reference largely to Discourse and get many of the advantages it contains.
(I got the main idea during a work discussion about how to solve our data silos problem—particularly email, slack, and texts. We are going to try to use Discourse as a project reference suite.)
This may be a dismal failure. Or it may be my best idea ever. Stay tuned for the exciting journey…
