Distributed Cognition

It's a process of getting things out of your head and into objective, and reviewable format.

Notes

  • It's a process of getting things out of your head and into objective, and reviewable format.

  • It's an extended mind or a second brain.

  • Few people can hold their focus on a topic for more than a couple of minutes only relying on their minds.

    • You need tools and some objective structure to help. For instance, if we have a pen and paper, then we can stay focused for hours.
  • The mind works this way:

    1. It will give you some ideas as you feel you can effectively use them.
    2. If you're not collecting it in a trusted way, it won't give you more.
    3. If you're recording them, even for later evaluation, it'll give you more ideas.
  • It helps you organize your thoughts.

    • Natural and complex connections may emerge.
