PKM Bell Curve Meme

The whole idea of the meme is to demonstrate the 3 types of note-takers:

  1. The beginner: they use Apple notes because it’s accessible
  2. The intermediate: they design complex systems to get as many benefits as possible
  3. The master: they use Apple notes because they realized it was all they needed
