Good post - great idea - and the execution is not bad.

I've been using org-capture in Emacs' org-mode for a long time, and that works well for me in terms of flow and grabbing the note and sorting it out later. While org files can be published, it's not the nicest way to do things.

I've made a go at Gitbook, and am still working it out, using a local repo and my beloved Emacs to create the entries still. It's not yet as frictionless as I'd like, but it's something that could become so.

Thanks for the inspo!

ps. - I really love the term "Exocortex" - brilliantly describes this :)
