Note Taking with Winston Teng

WT: The reason why I've structured it this way is because I like to work with material from a bottom-up approach (raw material > claim > thread / synthesis).

My current workflow is to first create some notes or highlights from raw material (e.g. books, articles, videos, transcripts etc), which has a #content tag. I then add #ref to parts that I want to create a Claim for, tagged as #claim under a Claims field. The next part is where I want to insert the claim directly into what I call a Thread - which is part of a bigger work. This gives me a pipeline from tagging a node with #ref > which opens up a #claim > which opens up a #thread > and then I synergise each claim with other existing claims.

The reason why I've structured it this way is because I like to work with material from a bottom-up approach (raw material > claim > thread / synthesis). Also I'd like to be able to clearly distinguish what information written within a thread/synthesis node is contributed by which claim. The context is really crucial.
