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? https://padlet.com
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.
What are your preferred alternatives to Google Drive's shared documents for writing/editing? Preferring ones which don't require accoutn/login!
fonts! Show more
Somebody mentioned here recently that Google has a scary grip over the technologies underlying how we build/use the internet and mentioned Google Fonts (among other things). This got me a little spooked but also made me more conscious of how I use fonts and the fonts I should be using/supporting.
Can anybody link me to good resources for how I should be setting up fonts for web, and just nice, pleasing (#FOSS?) fonts I can use for personal computing?
