    1. By contrast, a systematic ordering, which finds its contemporary equivalent in modern outliners, soon runs into difficulties. The anthropologist Alan MacFarlane noted some time ago that "one danger inherent in paper indexes is the amount of effort they take to add to and maintain. That means that more and more of the worker's energies go into the creation of the tools for research, and the less time there is to actually do the research and the writing." He traced this problem to the hierarchical classification that he thought paper makes necessary and complained that the system broke down at 40.000 cards because the preconceived categories proved inflexible. Luhmann's alternative avoids this problem.

    1. Too many “Digital Gardens” end up as not much more than a record of someone dicking around with their note-taking workflow for a couple of months.

      I've seen this pattern. I suspect some of the issue is having a clean, useful user interface for actually using the thing instead of spending time setting it up and tweaking it.

    1. Ru does a retrospective about how much work and energy a static site can be to maintain a personal website.

    2. Yet, every time I open up my Eleventy codebase, I want to puke (figuratively). Having gained distance and perspective from the codebase, it now looks less like a personal website and more like software. Even if a lot of it is well-engineered, it feels overblown for what it is supposed to do.

      Even for a smart and experienced programmer, maintaining a static website generator site can be a lot of work.

    1. Notions, Notes, Ideas and work notes

      My equivalent, as best as I can tell, is:

      • Permanent notes (atomic, linked concepts) = Notions
      • Temporary notes (half-formed thoughts, links, snippets, etc.) = Notes
      • Temporary notes initially, which later become permanent notes = Ideas (see later comment about why)
      • Admin notes (projects, tasks, meetings, etc.) = Work notes
    2. They can be linked to Ideas, Notes or Notions, or may give rise to them, but they serve a purpose firmly rooted in ongoing work. They are always placed within the context, and folder, of a specific project

      Similar to how I've come to think of my "admin" or "operational" notes. They're instrumental in that they serve a purpose that is usually about moving some project forward.

    1. Instead of encouraging more “data-sharing”, the focus should be the cultivation of “data infrastructure”,¹⁴ maintained for the public good by institutions with clear responsibilities and lines of accountability.

    4. Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is the process by which external content and resources are linked to Canvas. The tools that are currently available for UW-Madison Canvas users can be found the Canvas - Enabled Application Configurations KB document. UW-Madison employs a process by which individuals can request that additional external tools be vetted and integrated with Canvas. That form can be found this form (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and the entire review and integration process is generally expected to take 3-4 months. This KB document outlines further details related to external integrations and LTI.

    1. <category>examples &gt; example1</category>

      This example is misleading! I'll try to make this clearer.

      1. ">" should never be used ">" should be used in its place.
      2. There should be no spaces between the category name and ">". If you put spaces in, category assigment via bulk XML upload will not work.
