Notes should be concept-based

One of the most powerful ideas for building a digital garden, and that is derived directly from Luhmann method, is the atomicity of the notes. The more focus they are, the easier it becomes to link to them from other places.

This became apparent with the Literature Notes, which I tried at the beginning to keep mixed with the normal notes. After a while it was clear that notes with more than one source in them are too complex, since they would mix different contexts.

It is also important to keep in mind what happens when notes become long.
