Gardening is not just collecting

A digital garden is not a place for randomly collecting pieces of information (like a bookmark system). The entire purpose is Tendering a digital garden as a way of actively creating knowledge.

One of the advantages of the digital medium is that it allows to have evergreen notes, that can change and evolve as time passes and new insight is gained. This is an extension to Luhmann method, in which notes are static.

If we put our own voice on each note (as opposed to quoting by copy/pasting), then the most part of the work is done. We can go from content consumers to content producers simply by putting thought and our context into what we write (see: hermeneutic circle, lower the barrier to writing).
