My reasoning is similar to Matts. Although I am not currently sharing a Brain with anyone, the compartmentalisation kind of helps - role dependant,
I have a Brain for all thing Autism Spectrum, in that I also log relevant info about the social club I run, locally for autistic adults. I like to log birthdays and other useful dates which can sync with Google Cal, get’ its own Cal, this way; I won’t forget one of my guys birthdays!
Another Brain for my PhD work (biomimetics), I log a lot of date related stuff there, so it too can have its own feed.
Have a collection of other Brains, for various other projects, eg family tree (discovered a whole branch in the US I didn’t know about), or my interest in computer history.
Think my plan is to merge them into a master Archive Brain when any topic becomes ‘Archive Stage” but until then I try and keep some space between.
Evernote serves as my general level repository for summaries of information - plain text export of selected thoughts out of the Brain ,so thoughts tags & notes into an EN note for quick reference. Progressive Summarisation is the process https://fortelabs.co/blog/progressive-summarization-a-practical-technique-for-designing-discoverable-notes
