Welcome, Geek Joy Podcast listener!
Isn’t Alex just the coolest? I’m so glad they started a podcast… and that you listen to it!
And I know the Geek Joy Podcast isn’t the only place you get your information… You listen to lots of other podcasts, and read books, forums, and blogs. In fact, there’s so much awesome stuff out there that it’s easy to forget things and get overwhelmed.
How do you keep track of all the things you learn, and ideas you have?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably tried lots of different systems – evernote, dropbox, RSS readers, todo list managers, note-taking tools…

That kind of tinkering is definitely fun, but takes up a lot of time. You spend more time messing around with tools than you do exploring your own ideas - and doing cool things with them.
What if you had a simple note-taking system that worked?

I’ve got something to share with you today…
It’s called zettelkasten!
Okay, I guess repeating it doesn’t help you understand it any better…
Zettelkasten is a simple note-taking system that works
It’s based on plain text, so it’s super programmable. I’ve been using it for a couple months, and absolutely love it!
Here are some of the cool things you can do with it:
- Link between notes – and NEVER break links just because you moved a file
- Use artificial intelligence to find notes that are related to each other
- Jump-start your next blog post just by combining a few notes
I’ve put together a free guide to zettelkasten…
I’ll teach you how to use this simple system, and show you a few cool programming tricks along the way!
