comment How do I get more productive from using keyboard shortcuts?
IMO Windows 7 now does most of what you list above: WIN+"fire"+ENTER and firefox opens, even files/scripts if you index them. Plugins are similar to windows gadgets. Is it a script language like autohotkey for Win/Linux or more a closed source program with plugins you can develop yourself like firefox?

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
@dmitry i thought this site is on everything influencing your productivity NOW & IN FUTURE.Choosing the wrong software here will heavily damage your productivity in future, when you cant port, update, repair a knowledge database. I want to ask more software questions,as most of us work with software, improve software with software (Extensions, Autohotkey,...).If such questions get closed here, the site gets pretty pointless for me working every day in front of a Computer But thats just MY VIEW.Im a bit surprised this question gets not more upvotes,as knowledge managing is crucial for prod.

@adam thx also interesting. I think tagging is a fundamental functionality of any knowlegde system. In a database (im no expert here) you would posteriorly probably have more functions to group specific tagged nodes or sort them? Is this a big advantage of sqlite? @tomedu thx i tried doku and pmwiki, but doesnt work for offline mobile phones afiak? would need a php XAMPP server

How would one compare future-proofness of text file & sqlite? text files are likely 100% future-proof, squlite 90% (?) as Firefox and many mobile OS use it? It looks to me better for node taking, as you have tags, node-text, links of nodes all in a handy table. Text files look to me still like the most future-proof solution, but sqlite maybe much more handy with more function for grouping, sorting? Maybe there are tools in some years to visualize a database like a 3D mind map. Looks like the best compromise in sense of functions, compatibility and future-proofness?

im not totally convinced by proprietary software. Google had a app called Google Notebook, which is now not further developed afaik. I also dont know of a parser porting it onto another knowledge managment software...i think open source like tiddlywiki, docbook, tikiwiki is much more future-proof here.

thx. i will add-edit this in my post. It has to be possible to make hypertext references/links, i think this is crucial for any big knowledge base. Also tagging would be fine.
