- Evergreen notes are Andy Matuschak's take on Zettelkasten
- It's more modern, digital first, and focuses on 'accumulating knowledge over time' than building connections, or creating outputs.
- While both Zettelkasten and Evergeeen Notes suggests concept base, densely linked, atomic notes.
- the significant difference is that Zettelkasten has a goal (of creating permanent notes) and has a clear three-tire process while evergreen is more fluid.
- By fluid - it's attempting to build a 'garden over time', i.e. all notes have a potential to be evergreen
- In Zettelkasten a fleet or lit won't become a permanent note, you have to create one, while all notes in evergreen has potential to be evergreen.
