Quartz Philosophy

Last updated Nov 20, 2021

“[One] who works with the door open gets all kinds of interruptions, but [they] also occasionally gets clues as to what the world is and what might be important.” — Richard Hamming

# Why Quartz?

Hosting a public digital garden isn’t easy. There are an overwhelming number of tutorials, resources, and guides for tools like Notion, Roam, and Obsidian, yet none of them have super easy to use free tools to publish that garden to the world.

I’ve personally found that

  1. It’s nice to access notes from anywhere
  2. Having a public digital garden invites open conversations
  3. It makes keeping personal notes and knowledge playful and fun

I was really inspired by Bianca and Joel’s digital gardens and wanted to try making my own.

The goal of Quartz is to make hosting your own public digital garden free and simple. You don’t even need your own website. Quartz does all of that for you and gives your own little corner of the internet.
