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.
