Good tools for thought encourage or allow me to:

Capture interesting ideas and their original or related contexts so I can artificially remember more of what I’ve seen, read, and thought.

Links these ideas to related and non-related ideas and contexts

Dramatically accelerates the creation of new ideas with respect to combinatorial creativity and ideas have sex.

Have a greater ability to focus on bigger ideas by letting me forget some less familiar minutiae. I can think more by remembering less though repeated good ideas filter up to the top and through repeated linking and use are more easily remembered.
