Andy Matuschak and Michael Nielsen in "How can we develop transformative tools for thought?" (2019) discuss at great length memory systems.

Abridging their lengthy "Summary and Conclusions" (to make it more memorable!):

Matuschak and Nielsen ask further questions about other thinking tools; more on that another day!
