Why note-taking apps don’t make us smarter

I can't recommend the Zettlekasten Method enough: https://zettelkasten.de/introduction/
You can do it with index cards or you can use software to practice the method and grow your note collection. I now prefer Zettlr (https://www.zettlr.com) after using Joplin (https://joplinapp.org), which are both FOSS.
One of the core strategies of the Zettlekasten Method is to link notes to each other. That's how knowledge grows: connections and synthesis (internalization/application of the connections)
Here's a 3-year-old video on the method that serves as a good primer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFZHuWLA09M

I discovered recently [logseq](https://logseq.com/) and it's beautiful. I use quite a lot Zettlr for taking notes on concepts and ideas but I have to say that logseq has become my starting point for daily, short, notes and tasks. I need to work on an integration with Zettlr however, I like the possibility of the latter to organize and connect the texts, especially convenient when writing essays.

GitLab software engineer Tomas Vik runs through the slip-box method, based on Sönke Ahrens's book, How to Take Smart Notes. He recommends creating individual plain text (markdown) files and gives clear examples of how this is structured. He used Zettlr as his markdown-enabled text editor of choice, but mentions alternative apps that do similar things. As a bonus, there's a follow-up post a year later, in which the author describes how his process has changed (not much) and why he now uses Logseq instead of Zettlr.
