I was delighted to present the Hook productivity software for macOS at Tinderbox Meetup #22 earlier today. There was a great turn-out of bright people who are very keen about digital knowledge work — very much aligned with the CogZest slogan, to “Thrive in the sea of knowledge“!
Regarding Tinderbox, from Wikipedia:
Its functions include storing and organizing notes, plans, and ideas, and sharing ideas through blogs.
It also offers functionality similar to that of outliner and spatial hypertext/mind mapping tools, in addition to knowledge management, database and agent (persistent search) tools.
Tinderbox is used for a wide variety of tasks:
Tinderbox is made by Eastgate: serious hypertext. Eastgate also runs WinterFEST and SummerFEST artisinal software campaigns in which Hook occasionally participates.
Mark Bernstein is chief scientist at Eastgate Systems, Inc., where he designs and crafts tools for writing with links. He is the designer of Tinderbox and author of Intertwingled, The Tinderbox Way, the hypertext novel Those Trojan Girls, as well as roughly fifty research papers and book chapters on links. Mark is an originator of the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking. Twitter: @eastgate.

I’m looking forward to deepening my connection with this software and community.
