My Knowledge Processing Pipeline looks like this: Instapaper → Readwise → Roam Research.
Recently I struggled with discovering quality content to pipe through the line.
What’s your way to fill your pipeline?
Typically it goes from the content provider (Feedly, Pocket, email newsletters) to a Notion Notes page using their "Save to Notion" browser extension. We then end up with a list of articles that the whole team can access and read/comment on. We use tags to categorize the content (usually) as well.
Over the holidays I used the downtime to put a lot of thought into this and landed on the same pipeline: Instapaper browser extension (save for read later) → Instapaper (read and highlighting) → Readwise (syncing highlights) → Roam Research, and have been very pleased. Kindle highlighting for purchased books.
I haven't settled on a specific solution for reading and highlighting of PDFs that come as long-form content in my daily work or researching of topics; but the recent weeks for me have really underscored how much of the world's knowledge is distributed in long-form PDFs.
I've also found that if one is extremely selective about the experts one follows on Twitter, Tweetdeck actually provides great pointers to knowledge.
But usually reading time is my bottleneck, not finding stuff to read.
It feels like we solve each other's problem in a way. I'm still figuring out the best workflow from multiple sources (mostly Instapaper and Kindle) to Roam. In other words, I have a steady stream of water and a very leaky cauldron!
When I read an article, I usually open 5-8 tabs (from hyperlinks on the post) and read most of them. So if I'm subscribed to 3 newsletters and I get one email each today, this translates to around 20+ pieces of content for my pipleline.
I can assume (as members of Capiche) that our interests intersect.
