This is my personal wiki(digital garden) where I share things I know about this world in form of an online GitBook hosted on GitHub.
My Name is Hrishikesh Bhaskaran and I am a Software Engineer, currently working as the VP of Engineering at Entri.
In basic terms, it is a different format for written content on the web. It’s about moving away from blog posts ordered by dates and categories, into more of an interlinked web of notes. Blog posts are articles at a point in time, while here it is living document. Digital gardens are also known as Zettelkasten or Second Brain.
Sometimes back when I stumbled upon Nikita Voloboev's wiki, it became a regular hangout place immediately. But the real inspiration for me to start this space was Santhosh Thottingal. When he started his digital garden, I too wanted to try. And here we are.
There is a DigitalGardens community on Reddit which discusses tools to maintain & create these wikis. As well as how to use them to develop new transformative tools for thought.
Don't be afraid to create one of your own and share what you know with the world.
