When the heck to link from A to B (and from B to C)?
Using links, you build the structure of a VanillaSpace. The quality of your linking will therefore determine the quality of your knowledge structure.
- Use links sparingly.
A snip shouldn't be linked to more than about 7 other snips. If it does, refactor - introduce subcategories, distribute content over multiple snips etc. In the beginning, e.g., the "Vanilla" snip contained a lot of links to documentation snips which were soon refactored to their own snip, "vanilla-documentation".
- Be as specific as possible.
If you could link to either "1979" or "1979-09", link to "1979-09". If you could link to either "MIT" or "MIT Media Lab", link to "MIT Media Lab". Avoid linking to concepts too generic/big like "World", "Universe" or "1984".
- Refactor wildly.
Just like in programming, refactoring can massively enhance, clear and clean up the structure of your creations. So do it.
- Let Vista guide you.
VanillaVista is a great tool for building accessible knowledge structures. If a Vista vista is cluttered, the probability that your link structure could be improved is very high.
