This is an interview and case study with Addison Shockley, a Phd in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Rhetoric.

He has developed a customized workflow to use with his second brain that allows him to precisely track citations for writing academic articles, including multi-colored progressive summarization (red for arguments/debates, blue for external significance, black for evidence, purple for scholarly significance, and yellow for personal resonance) and a PARA system that spans PDF readers and reference management software tools like Zotero.

You can reach Addison at or on Twitter at @addisonshockley.
