I've always been studying something, even when school finished, but I've never really been one to keep my notes or revise them very often. Now, I find myself going back over some of the material because I need to use it in my work. I find myself wondering if my notes would have been useful if I stored them in a better format and revised them more often.

My questions to you guys are

- How do you organize your knowledge?
- Do you prefer a unified format, a subject-specific format, or an even more granular format?
- Do you build hierarchies, use tags, or do something else?
- Do you maintain an index specific to a particular audience or subject (e.g., the front page of a wiki)?
- How do you reference other materials (e.g., books, online articles that might disappear).
- Does your format cater to a specific study style? Is it different for different subjects?
- When your note corpus starts becoming large, how do you navigate through it? Searching? Hierarchy? Something else?
- Do you find that your notes match your thinking style several years later, or do you find that you have changed, causing the notes to be less useful?
- Do you focus on creating notes that help you achieve different tasks (e.g., task-based learning)?
- Do you focus on organizing knowledge by minimizing concepts and maximizing orthogonality between concepts?

My notes are for biology research, so they are specifically to:
- take notes from articles and papers.
- schedule and record experiments.
- store code and results from analysis.

It is all stored in markdown files that are edited with org-mode in emacs (https://orgmode.org/). It's crazy powerful and configurable, but if you don't use the extra features it is nice and simple.

For general notes I use a single file with a hierarchy of headings / subheadings for different topics. I have a bibtex file where I put all the references I come across. Then the org-ref package to link them from the notes file. When writing an article I'll copy my thoughts and references from here into a new file, which is then compiled down with latex into a report with proper citations.

Specific projects get their own notes file. These are organised chronologically (I thought this, so I did this experiment, it didn't work, therefore I…). These contain timestamps for scheduling things I have to do, along with code and plots / pictures. Once I'm done with the project they are saved for future reference and I don't change them anymore.

I find it useful to have the clear separation between notes files, which I constantly re-write and re-organise over time as my understanding changes, and the project specific files which only ever get more information added at the end and serve as a record of what I did and thought at the time.


I can either pay attention of takes notes, so in the end it is much better to never take notes, unless there is enough time after the explanation to take notes.

To be honest, i don't understand many of your your questions very well.
The way i study is by doing excercises on anything that has math on it or paying attention to class.



I've seen Cherry Tree a few times before, but it always seemed to be kind of ugly. I'll try it out for a few weeks to see if I can get over that. It is really cool that you can attach any file to a node though.


My approach is simple, on lectures I try to write everything fast - focus is on listening. Then I just rewrite the notes. I can say it is not very time efficient, because I want them as clear and pretty as possible, focusing less on actually thinking on material.


It is pretty function over form I have to admit, that's kinda what I like about it though. Put the effort where it counts.
You can always export to PDF/HTML in a second for when not actually editing, for a more comfy reading experience. Also if you do programming, can compile and execute current node with an F5 buttonpress.
Also shiet, giving it a closer look than usual I'm finding stuff I didn't even know, noticed the exported PDFs actually keep the code highlighting.
And F8 apparently auto-creates a node for you with a year/month/day structure, landing you at a current-day node. Would be super quick to make a journal, just F8 and you have the days log-file. Also another button to insert date/time-stamp just as simple text.

But yeah, if you just wanna get work done it's a godsend, and if you dig into the functionality you'll probably find stuff that could make your workflow and notation style super smooth.

I'm moving off to college in 7 days, I'm really excited to move out but I'm going to be busy 24/7 it seems like with working to pay rent, I have my tuition all figured out through scholarships and ~$3000 in loans, I think I'm gonna do alright.
Any tips for a wagie/student to get by in college?

Yea, I have 5 years of experience in the “real world.” The “real world” is full of pandering to your coworkers so that they think you are a smart, likeable guy who doesn’t cause any trouble. Every once in a while you get that opportunity to surprise everyone by improving request latency by 10x and acting like anyone could have done it. Your coworkers ignore it, but your boss recognizes that it makes a difference. You get promoted, your coworkers become envious, and you end up quitting because you find a better job anyways.

All I’m saying is that the bar in the “real world” is very low when it comes to technical skills. If you know what the fuck you are doing, you can pull out those unique moments that make people notice without ruining your reputation. So, in a sense, you’re right. The status quo tends toward reusable libraries. If you can recognize the special circumstances for that graph algorithm you remembered, maybe you can demonstrate that you are the 10x engineer that your boss has been reading about for so long.


for certain tasks, especially when you have tight deadlines, it simply isn't feasible to write stuff yourself
maybe if you're at a waterfall company, they don't mind you taking a long time to reinvent the wheel
but with agile/devops they emphasize pushing to production as quickly as possible, even with unit tests and whatnot


> a lot of the things that you learn in school directly affect how well you can go "above and beyond" at your job.
Its just basic stuff. Low hanging fruit which is just ignored by your average programmer. Its not "above and beyond", but rather "you dont suck".
The real gold stuff isn't found in academia mostly, but rather the "top" of the real world, hidden and obscure.


just had to reply because this is such a fucking stupid post, 3rd and 4th year comp sci is immensely important, you can get by without knowing data structures, graph theory, boolean algebra, asymptotic notation, the underlying logic of common algorithms etc but you're forever going to be working in the dark seeing everything as nail that fits the very, very limited hammer you've given yourself – I guarantee there are patterns and approaches applicable to things you work on every day that you've never even considered because you lack the vocabulary to even think about these problems in a different way

furthermore you're completely wrong, SOTA algorithms are exclusively generated by research institutions. read SIGGRAPH proceedings sometime and tell me how many of the papers didn't come from "academia"


Dude, I'm a master of those things you mentioned.
Learning about all of that doesnt require a school to teach you.
Just grab a book and read it / work through it.

Also I dont think you understood my post.
What I meant was, understanding these things should be the normal.
Knowing about basic CS, doesn't make you awesome, it means you just dont suck (like 95% of programmers)

Computer Graphics is one of the only fields were academia still produces good papers,
but only because there is interesting stuff in Graphics left to be found.
For many other fields in CS, academia remains a circlejerk.
But even when it comes to SIGGRAPH a lot of the shit is really impressive, but if you'd program something like a video-game engine, you can pretty much ignore those papers.
For most of the applications, that you as a programmer, would create that use computer graphics, reading some obscure blog-post about the graphics-pipeline can be a lot more helpful, than reading papers published in SIGGRAPH.

I was able to guess a dude was going to ask a girl out 1 week before he did. Guess I'm not as autistic as I think when it comes to social clues.

(He got friendzoned if you're curious)

I went to the my first party last night (18) and got absolutely wasted and puked a lot. I've gotten drunk before but not that drunk, it really wasn't that fun once I started puking and I don't remember much afterwards. At least I had a friendo that was caring for me and not letting me die

Wasn't any dancing really, it was more of a kickback sort of thing, but it was super fun to be at.
I'm pretty sure I said I love you to a girl as she was leaving but I hope not lmao


I'll try, but I really don't have a ton of friends and I just moved away from my hometown to a town ~6 hours away so it'll be kinda hard to find new friends to do this with


Nice work, being social. Now get back to work.

Don't forget to drink water every few drinks and before going to bed, don't drink too fast and listen to your body unless you enjoy puking


on top of this, take an ibuprofen before sleeping, it'll help a lot with hangovers
if you forget to take it before sleeping then 2 ibuprofen plus a gatorade/powerade will perk you up after about an hour

I think this post says a lot about our society, sushi!


File: 1568826056826.jpg (49.17 KB, 500x335, 2b91b5a1.jpg)

To be fair even IRL the vast majority of people won't care about the progress of someone's academical researches beyond what can be summed up in a few sentences. AND social media like Facebook are mostly a game of flexing and flattery. It doesn't mean nothing genuine in what people share can be found but it just is, it won't get much attention if, if I can express it like this, the narcissistic and relational charge of the content is neutral. imho desu


>>Why do you care what other people think?
>Life must be very easy to live if you’re not insecure
I am actually very insecure what other people think about me. So much so it drives me kinda insane. I have a lot of issues to deal with but I always tell myself what Arline told Feynman: What do you care what other people think?

That quote came from Arline Feynman, Richard Feynman's wife who had TB at the time. They both a little shunned(?) from starting a relationship and getting married, all because she had TB. What would young Richie do with a girl like that? He couldn't even kiss her on the mouth! I think Arline's parents even said "We understand if you'd rather not court our girl"! (or something along those lines.)

Now Dick didn't really care about any of that because he loved her to bits, but he did care what other people thought of him. Sometimes Arline had to tell (or remind) him "What do you care what other people think?".

If only we could all be as free as Feynman.

I know it's hard, but once you let go for just a little bit? The freedom is breathtaking.
t. guy that's still learning to let go


>academia subject
>not a lot of replies on facebook
Maybe they're not all as smart or educated as you, OP?

What'd that popularity of yours every buy that a little PR couldn't?


The fact that this bothered you at all, and that you checked and compared the amount of likes on posts, is evidence enough that social media is poison. You shouldn't be using those sites, or if you want to keep using them, you shouldn't worry about how many likes or comments or whatever your posts on there get. Instead try to use it to connect with the people you care about.

There's probably a better place to post this, but does anyone have any tips on dealing with parents who treat you like a child? I mean, even as a child it was pretty bad, but now I'm an adult who's not allowed to cook food or ride the bus by himself (and as such doesn't know how to do anything and probably looks like a massive retard 24/7). My original plan was to escape by going to university, but now it looks like that won't happen for at least another year. I want to spend my life exploring the world, but in the meantime I'd like to at least have the freedom to exist in different locations than my house and theoretically be able to survive if they were to leave me alone for a week.

Show your parents those trips. They'll never doubt your abilities again.


another idea; you could choose to stay a sonbasket and revel in your complacency.

That's the way I would go it


>Not allowed to cook food
Make them breakfast. Eggs and hashbrowns/ pancakes
>ride the bus by himself
Go buy a greyhound ticket. I can go to the big city for 31 bucks. I have low funds though.

Sushi with no cooking experience tries to make eggs and hashbrowns. Burnt goop results.

Well sushis, I finally moved out.
My mom cried when she left my place since I moved ~5 hours away for school, which really isn't that far but my mom is a very emotional person.
Her crying made me cry a little bit but I'm excited to meet some new people and hopefully make some new friends.
They left me with some booze so later tonight I'll probably have a little celebratory drink ^_^

Thanks dude, I still need to pack all of my clothes into my dresser but other than that my room is all set up. Pretty comfy setup, I'm renting from someone that has a room in their yard so it's kinda like my little hut but it's comfy, it's only a little smaller than a studio apartment tbh


is this just for university or is it a bird leaving the nest situation


Little bit of both, I moved away for school but I will not return other than holidays most likely. Once I get my bachelor's degree I plan on doing the JET program to go over to Japan and teach english


Your family was sad when you moved out? My family was happy when I left because they didn't want me anymore.

Depending on where you live, one sentiment or the other could be more common (although I think sadness is always in the majority no matter what).

Today I slept for 8 hours for the first time in weeks. Later the day I witnessed an honest smile. That's a nice day if I ever had one.


This thread is very similiar to the >>3880 thread, just saying.
But also congrulations on the sleep, finally feeling rested feels great.

Any comfy Christians having a nice time? Whats has been happening in your life. How have you felt god in your life recently?

Non-Christians welcome. The bible is a great place for wisdom and comfort, even if you don't believe.

Why are you even on sushi? Stop LARPing.


>people who don't have the exact same opinions as me are larping


imagine trolling a christian thread with anti-christian posts and then having the audacity to get upset with the people who just wanted a comfy christian thread without any neckbeard atheist trolls in it


Religion has been added to the list of uncomfy topics in the rules. This topic will inevitably stir up negative feelings in people.
