The Anatomy of an Antinet Note

Dear Friend,

Good things happen to those who take action.

Today, I wrote a letter to a man named Mike Shaffer. He lives in Dallas, Texas. Yeehaw!

In the letter, which was the very first of my letters back to those who wrote me requesting a free copy of my book (see the P.S. section). Note: I even cover shipping cost since, first: I drive a lime green Lamborghini, and second: because I enjoy lighting money on fire.

Anyway, let's get back to the point...

In today's letter to Mike, I lay out the anatomy of a Notecard ID ("NCID"), in an antinet system.

Here is a picture of it below:

Hope this provides you with a sense of how Notecard ID's function in antinet systems.

'til tomorrow,

Your compadre, and "Wannabe Mexican",[1]

P.S.

Why do I call it an antinet, and not an analog zettelkasten?

I have several reasons. I am not going to get into all of them now.

I'll give you one reason in the meantime. The reason is of temporal relevance:

I launched a poll on Reddit, and also one on Twitter. Here are the results pictured below.

Here's the results of the Twitter poll (so far):

And here's the Reddit results (so far):

The poll is not over. I will continue to let it run; however, I will say it's 96% likely I'll choose antinet. I have several reasons why, yet I choose not to get into all of them now. You'll learn why in the future at some point. Definitely in the book.

P.P.S.

If you didn't already know, in the future I'll be releasing a book on the true nature of Niklas Luhmann's zettelkasten. I refer to Luhmanesque zettelkastens as, antinets.

Because you're an early supporter of mine, I've decided to do something that will end up costing me a lot of money...

I've decided to give you a copy of my new book, signed by me, and I'll even pay for the cost of shipping it to you!

I'll restate that. I will send you a free, signed copy of the book I release on the antinet. This book will show you precisely how Luhmann created an analog thinking mind. It will show you step-by-step how to create the system responsible for producing 70 books, and 550 papers. The antinet zettelkasten will enable you to create the genius-level work you're capable of producing.

All I ask is that you do the following:

  1. Write to me, in handwritten format.
  2. On the piece of paper write something like:

"Hey Scott! I'd like for you to send me a copy of your book on antinet zettelkastens. Oh, and I'd love for you to sign it too. Also, thanks Scott for paying the shipping cost!"

  1. Mail the above-handwritten letter to me at:

Scott P. Scheper
600 W. Broadway, Suite 700
San Diego, CA 92101

Mail this to me in the next week. After that, I may be pulling this offer down. But it's good at least for a week.

If you're reading this now it means the offer is still valid! Follow the steps outlined above... like right now! I'm serious!

That's all I'm gonna say on that.

If it's not obvious how much of a no-brainer this offer is at this point, then... well to hell with it. And to hell with you!

Kidding!

(Actually, I'm not. If you don't want a free book signed by me, you eat crayons).

Oh, and why am I asking you to write me a hand-written letter?

Because I want you to stop being a lazy pussy. I want you to invest time in someone who wants to change your life.

I'm not someone who wants the lazy-ass email addresses of average Joe-blows.

I want to communicate with the best people, and I want to serve the very best people.

The people I serve are ones serious enough about their growth and craft that gasp... they'll actually take the time to mail in a simple letter requesting a free book on it!

Alright, enough of my preaching. Turn off the noise and distraction of your mind. Do as I say. Seriously. Do this now:

  1. Write to me, in handwritten format.
  2. On the piece of paper write something like:

"Hey Scott! I'd like for you to send me a copy of your book on antinet zettelkastens. Oh, and I'd love for you to sign it too. Also, thanks Scott for paying the shipping cost!"

  1. Mail the above-handwritten letter to me at:

Scott P. Scheper
600 W. Broadway, Suite 700
San Diego, CA 92101

Got it?

Good!

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

P.P.P.S. I found out today I do not HIV, nor do I have full blown AIDS.[2]
