Scuttlebutt in our connected, stay-at-home age of Covid-19
I’m also exploring how to use new social media to do better investment-research – especially when it comes to scuttlebutt. And so I’m experimenting with the following media:

  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • Email
  • Expert Networks
  • Podcasts

Knowledge Management
Much of the above spills into the area of Personal Knowledge Management and I’ve become a big fan of
– Roam Research
– Tiago Forte and Building a Second Brain
– Anne Laure Le Cunff and Ness Labs.
– Soenke Ahrens and the Zettelkasten system.

I have started using Roam Research as a daily companion. It’s only been a couple of weeks at this point, but I’m excited to see how things develop as the personal knowledge base gets deeper. I have lifted some excerpts which you can see here

I still use Evernote and have many Moleskine ruled notebooks that are filled with “fleeting notes”. I am working my way through them.

Leisure and Family
When I’m not working or reading, I love spending time with my family and doing sport – mainly cycling and tennis with a little bit of squash and swimming.

If we are not already connected, probably the best way to be in touch is via Twitter: @gspier is my handle.
