Talking about Hook with Tinderbox Users

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:

  • As a personal web publishing system, with good support for blog creation and management
  • Personal information management
  • Outlining and mind mapping
  • Concept mapping
  • Note-taking
  • Plot and story construction and writing
  • Creating hypertexts

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