Articles about data science and science in general, open source and other free DIY solutions, and personal stuff.
DEVONthink’s automatic WikiLinks function is a powerful tool, both for discovering connections between notes – expected and unexpected ones – and for the automatized linking of these notes. In this post I briefly explain, how this feature has impacted my Zettelkasten workflow.
You can quickly add a floating Back-to-top button to your Markdown documents in just two steps.
Use your Zettelkasten as a research, thinking and learning tool – Personal knowledge management as a system
In the last part of the series about personal knowledge management, we dive deeper into the Zettelkasten method and demonstrate, how to integrate all parts as an overall system into our research workflow.
Don’t take isolated notes, connect them! Vannevar Bush on building a self-organizing network of knowledge
In 1945, Vannevar Bush presented his concept of a self-organizing personal knowledge network by linking informational units with each other. This concept, that would later be known as the Hypertext concept or Hypertext theory, provides the theoretical base of the personal knowledge management system presented in the short series on that topic. This is the first of three parts of that series.
My next posts will be a short series about personal knowledge management and how it can be integrated as a holistic system into our overall research workflow. The system is based on the Hypertext Theory and the Zettelkasten method, and its core element is the personal note-taking process. We go step by step through all parts and see, how we can practically implement them into our daily research work.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your thesis, I just came across Clean Thesis by Ricardo Langner, a simple and elegant LaTeX template for thesis documents.
Pyhton’s builtin help system is probably the fastest way, to quickly look up Python commands and their syntax. It works without leaving your Python environment and is fully offline available.

I’ve added a new tutorial in the teaching section on how to read and process IGOR binary files (ibw) of patch clamp recordings.
Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia ꜛ. As a small contribution to the fight for equal rights, I’ve redesigned my “heart” graphic and I will share it on my social media accounts. Feel free to re-share it anytime.
Searching for a new desktop wallpaper, I took some photographs with colored pencils. For the first time, I worked with my little improvised studio.
