- The phrase "digital garden" is a metaphor for thinking about writing and creating that focuses less on the resulting “showpiece” and more on the process, care, and craft it takes to get there.
- We are all constantly bombarded with information, a lot of it is really good information too, but the challenge is absorbing it and applying it to the context of our lives and careers.
- Another layer of discovery is curation.
- Curation comes before a chronological list.
- What makes a garden is interesting. It's personal. Things are organized and orderly, but with a touch of chaos around the edges.
- It is a blog, sure, but it is also a wiki. It's a spot where I can post ideas, snippets, resources, thoughts, collections, and other bits and pieces that I find interesting and useful.
- Instead of always being a “performance” level of blogging, it can be a looser more human endeavour that drops the idea of robots sorting the content (in this case simply by date created) and embraces the idea of curation, by me, for you.
