So , where do I start ? I guess an intro about me would also entail an intro about how this community sprang up as well , best I start there I suppose .
The Productivists community ,as we know it , began as a Discord server when @heisenberg invited me and I’m a lightbulb ,around mid 2020 , after we all met in the RemNote Discord server. Initially , we used to hang out at the server sharing our workflows, involving RemNote mainly, which would involve a couple of video meets with other interested members who wanted to know how we used the tool . But it soon evolved into , what I like to call, “meta discussions” that would involve anything from google keeps to amazing Marvin , and GTD to how hypertext would be the future, in the same conversation.
That’s when we realised the real power of this community - a safe haven for people who aren’t tied up to any specific tool or philosophy , but are rather interested in constantly exploring the field of Productivity, PKM and the likes . It soon became evident that the fastest way to explore such spaces would be to get involved in conversations with people who came from different walks- rather “tools” - of life. Since then , this is what the community has been all about : discussing about things from a bird’s eye perspective involving any number of tools / methodologies / beliefs .
You can easily expect to find here , people from polarised systems and habits come together to reach a consensus after rational debating . The outcome would always be surprising , or at the least it would leave you more knowledgeable than before .
This is no cult , think of this more of a club to hangout with people having an indefinite thirst for exploration and knowledge .
OK , something about me now :
I am basically a Junior Doctor , from India , who’s been a fanatic of anything tech related , as far as I can remember . Give me any task and the first thing I would think about is " oh wow another excuse to put this new app that I found to test " . It was this never ending curiosity about tech and it’s day to day applications that led me to starting this community .
So , here’s to a long journey with you all !
