Digital Garden

The inspiration behind my new approach to Hubzilla I picked up from Greta in her gretzuni blog, who cites Chuck Grimmet, here

What are digital gardens? | Chuck Grimmett

What is a digital garden?
    A collection of thoughts, ideas, highlights, annotations, quotes, summaries, and notes that are richer than a tweet, but lack the timestamped nature of a blog post or published essay.

    Digital gardens are tended to and evolve over time. Sometimes they grow, sometimes they get trimmed back. Though they change, they have the four-dimensional permanence of a river or Theseus’s Ship.

    A digital garden embodies the nature of working in public and learning out loud: Sharing your current understanding and allowing others to learn from it.

    Like entangled roots and interwoven vines, the individual plants of digital gardens form a latticework of bi-directionally linked content that supports and encourages bridging and pollination to further understanding.
