What is a Digital Garden
A digital garden is an approach to publishing personal knowledge on the web. Different than a blog that contains polished articles in reverse chronological order. Digital gardens are more like work-in-progress wikis. A collection of unrefined, incomplete ideas that grow and evolve over time through constant tending (editing, rewriting and revising).
Qualities of a Digital Garden
- ▪ Organised by contextual relationships
- ▪ Learning in public
- ▪ Imperfection
- ▪ Playful, personal and experimental
- ▪ Diverse content mediums (videos, podcasts, short notes, long essays, sketches, ...)
- ▪ Independent ownership
About this Garden
The purpose of this garden is to be a blueprint for creating on the web. Notes analysing design, engineering and creativity. It aims to be simple and direct. Content is thought of as poetry, every word costs.
Each note is assigned a status:
|Seed||New content planted (created) less than a year ago.|
|Sprout||Content planted over a year ago. Regularly tended (revised).|
|Mature||Content planted over 2 years ago. Regularly tended.|
|Decaying||Content not tended in over a year.|
