What are collections?
Collections are patterns that connect multiple notes. This can range from a broad topic to a specific statement. Collections can nest like folders and are nonexclusive like tags. Examples of bowls include mental models, theses, themes, and frameworks.

What are notes?
Notes are short pieces of text you want to remember. Conceptually, you can think of them as information Lego blocks. Usually, they make a single point and are around a paragraph long, although there are no strict limits on length. By no means do they need to be comprehensive or polished. Examples of notes include quotes, highlights, drafts, and rough ideas.

Be open-minded
Sundae is a playground to remix the world’s knowledge. This often involves collaborating with strangers on ideas, so please be considerate when you are engaging other users. Nurture ideas and build on them, don’t shoot them down. Isaac Asimov describes the culture we’re trying to foster well: “First and foremost, there must be ease, relaxation, and a general sense of permissiveness. The world in general disapproves of creativity, and to be creative in public is particularly bad. Even to speculate in public is rather worrisome. The individuals must, therefore, have the feeling that the others won’t object. If a single individual present is unsympathetic to the foolishness that would be bound to go on at such a session, the others would freeze. The unsympathetic individual may be a gold mine of information, but the harm he does will more than compensate for that. It seems necessary to me, then, that all people at a session be willing to sound foolish and listen to others sound foolish.”

If you see a high quality and relevant connection, go out of your way to suggest it, even if it involves a stranger’s scoops/bowls. Offer to contribute as an editor to bowls that you’re interested in. Follow users/bowls you’re interested in freely without any regard for the followers/following ratio. Report scoops/bowls that you feel are inappropriate.
