I think that I had a good system for taking notes when I was a (grad) student. Now I find that I need to access things that I read longer ago, and make connections among more things. This might be a result of working on projects for longer. I've definitely read advice on note taking for a specific course or paper, but I don't think that I know of any for a life long research project like 'understand how language works'.

Anyone know of an open source alternative to Padlet?

I like the functionality but it did something weird: I had added some stuff to others' pads before I had an account; then I created an account and it had tracked me and added my contributions to those pads (before I had an account) to my new account.

When I emailed them to ask how this happened and how data is tracked, I got a non-answer.
