Personal Information Systems v2

Cover Image for Personal Information Systems v2

Through college, my system was largely the same as in high school. But I made some small tweaks in the structure of my files within finder largely because it was not practical to keep a large video or Sketch files in Evernote. So I created a new structure and started to keep content outside of Evernote except for minor notes from class. I also found that accessing some content types from Evernote was hard because I was using it for a way to much. So I started to move research, inspiration, and other content I wanted to save in Are.na and implemented the new v1 Emoji Key.

File Structure: General: org.subcategory.details/ School example: cca.undergrad.class/
