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 & evolve over time through constant tending (editing, rewriting & revising).
Qualities of a Digital Garden
- ▪ Organised by contextual relationships
- ▪ Learning in public
- ▪ Imperfection
- ▪ Playful, personal & 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. It aims to be simple & direct. Content is thought of as poetry, every word costs.
Each note is assigned a status:
|Seed||New content planted less than a year ago|
|Sprout||Content planted over a year ago & regularly tended|
|Mature||Content planted over 2 years ago & regularly tended|
|Decaying||Content not tended in over a year|
