Memex and My Limits

  • I'm not sure if any tool will ever break the 7 +/- 2 (or more like 1 +/- 2 as Alan Kay says) constrain of the brain
  • I'm also not sure if any tool will be able to give me more IQ points (although a point-of-view can - solving things visually)
  • also, understanding requires effort, and this requires time
  • so, even with the best second brain, I'm still limited by my own brain
  • this also seems related to Workshop vs Library issues
  • I keep looking at this through the lens of being somehow limited by my brain, no ideal note-taking system (or possibly helping-thinking-system) will solve this (memex and my limits)
