Thanks for sharing Luc.
It's always interesting to hear how people organize their thoughts and learnings.

As for myself, I'm purely digital.
I have over 2M lines of notes.

They are all in one grand file, but there is structure to it so I can find anything instantly.
There are about 1000 sections, which are organized categories of notes.
There is also a misc section at the top of the file for newly-entered uncategorized material that will later be categorized.

The system scales; so I could have 20M or 100M lines of notes and I'd still be able to find anything nearly instantly.
