I’m currently reading about memory and learning, focusing on how note-taking and spaced-repetition can improve cognitive performance. I’ll write up more details soon, but a few interesting resources I’ve found include:
- Gwern’s writing on Spaced Repetition for Efficient Learning — this a treasure-trove of research about spaced-repetition and memory
- How to Take Smart Notes, a book on how taking notes using the Zettelkasten method improves creative output
- A talk on implementing Niklas Luhmann’s Zettelkasten
I recently moved to Jersey City, prompted, in part, by weeks of hunting for an apartment in New York City with an in-unit washer and dryer. I’m loving the neighborhood so far — it’s been fun to explore a new part of the New York metropolitan area.
I don’t intend to start a fight, but Jersey City may have the greatest New York-style pizza.
