This paper by Jason Lustig on Gotthard Deutsch’s #zettelkasten was fascinating: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0952695119830900. While there’s an implication that its use didn’t make him as productive (from a writing perspective) as Niklas Luhmann or S.D. Goitein, I might suggest that it made him a more productive thinker and teacher, which in turn bore results in the form of his students who also picked up the practice from him.

@chrisaldrich I can also imagine historians and archivists finding all kinds of gems there.
@annahavron I’m trying to get my hands on a digital copy I’ve heard rumors of… If this is your cup of tea, Lustig literally wrote the book on Jewish History and archives (as a Ph.D. thesis first, and now): [A Time to Gather: Archives and the Control of Jewish Culture (Oxford Series on History and Archives)](http://www.amazon.com/Time-Gath...
@chrisaldrich very cool! Thank you. This is very much my cup of tea.
