Tending Your Inner And Outer Digital Gardens

Digital Gardens are mostly widely associated with bundles of writing which are writable only by the single owner, but readable by anyone. Not unlike a WikiLog (see Wiki Types).

But anyone thinking enough to have a digital garden should have a private notebook as well (Multiple Thinking Spaces). See How Will Keeping A Notebook Help You Hack Your Life. Some people are using Digital Garden tools, esp locally-hosted apps, for this purpose.

I think there's a benefit to

  • having both kinds of spaces
  • using the same tool for each
  • having a clear separation between the 2, but connections across them.

I'm framing this now in terms of Inner Garden and Outer Garden. Real-world analogs:

I'm also amused by not-really-related glosses

I use my WikiFlux engine for both spaces. And my WikiGraph integration helps me jump between them. The 2 spaces are SisterSites.
