    1. Why should this conversation be separate from other conversations about the work to be done? Design is one consideration alongside frontend and backend considerations, which often all intersect and require the same participants. Shifting this discussion to a separate work item can result in disjointed conversations and difficulty finding where a decision was made.
    1. These can then be used to develop a definition that states the essence of the living thing—what makes it what it is and thus cannot be altered; the essence is, of course, immutable.
    2. The Aristotelian method dominated classification until the 19th century. His scheme was, in effect, that the classification of a living thing by its nature—i.e., what it really is, as against superficial resemblances—requires the examination of many specimens, the discarding of variable characters (since they must be accidental, not essential), and the establishment of constant characters.

    1. Org-roam’s Design Principle


    2. Appendix D Variable Index
    3. Appendix C Function Index
    4. mathpix.el uses Mathpix’s API to convert clips into latex equations:


    5. Org-roam provides journaling capabilities akin to Org-journal with org-roam-dailies.
    6. Org-roam provides basic graphing capabilities to explore interconnections between notes, in org-roam-graph. This is done by performing SQL queries and generating images using Graphviz. The graph can also be navigated: see Roam Protocol.
    7. If foo is a function, foo is called with the current node as its argument. Else if org-roam-node-foo is a function, foo is called with the current node as its argument. The org-roam-node- prefix defines many of Org-roam’s node accessors such as org-roam-node-title and org-roam-node-level. Else look up org-roam-capture--info for foo. This is an internal variable that is set before the capture process begins. If none of the above applies, read a string using completing-read. Org-roam also provides the ${foo=default_val} syntax, where if a default value is provided, will be the initial value for the foo key during minibuffer completion.

      Click here to get a handle on the behavior of the expansions in multiple context.

    8. Org-roam’s templates are specified by org-roam-capture-templates
    9. Org-roam capture templates are incompatible with org-capture templates.
    10. Org-roam provides extensions for capturing content from external applications such as the browser, via org-protocol.

      This simplifies things, won't have to use develop using the dbus spec initially.

    11. Emacs has support for creating and editing encrypted gpg files, and Org-roam need not provide additional tooling.

      Cool, and with capture templates, I can probably get sophisticated if I need to. Question is, how essential is it to encrypt everything??

    12. Completions for Org-roam are provided via completion-at-point. Org-roam currently provides completions in two scenarios: When within an Org bracket link Anywhere

      What exactly is this???

      Going to have to come back to this at a later time and figure out what a "completion" is, although it's probably functions as expected.

    13. Org-roam caches most of the standard Org properties. The full list now includes: outline level todo state priority scheduled deadline tags

    1. indifference to human drivers

      Our week 8 module on Web 2.0 and the gig economy discussed this in more depth, and Barron alludes to this dynamic elsewhere in the article when describing both the typical user of an app like seamless and the typical profile of the gig economy worker who actually delivers their food - I appreciate the critiques of app design and user infantilization he is making here, but the article could have also discussed in more depth how these design choices help these companies to obfuscate and divert attention from the way they impact people besides the consumer. There is a whole class people whose primary interaction with these apps is on the back end- as struggling small business owners dependent on positive yelp reviews, delivery people, and rideshare drivers - maybe that is outside the purview of this article, but it would have been nice to see this angle explored a bit more.

    1. Some good men, and even of respectable information, consider the learned sciences as useless acquirements; some think that they do not better the condition of men; and others that education like private & individual concerns, should be left to private & individual effort

      In this quote, there is this all or nothing mentality; many of the founders seem to take different stances. The question: is the teaching and education of "learned sciences" beneficial? Universities in the 21st century seem to promote goals aimed at developing deeper thinkers, people with a desire and curiosity to continue learning, even after college. The fact that there was such a debate over whether "learned sciences" were an important factor of the UVA curriculum is shocking to me since the University seems to be so centered around creating "informed citizens" nowadays. I have a hard time understanding how learned sciences are useless since I believe they do "better the conditions of men." Learned sciences promote engagement throughout all disciplines and create better students and sharper thinkers as they have stronger abilities to collaborate with others. I think they included this statement to avoid criticism; they decided to ultimately leave the decision of whether or not to include learned sciences to the “private and individual effort,” exhibiting that this decision would be less contested if left to the specific individuals (i.e. professors and students). This surprised me to read because it’s easy to see how much values have changed to bring us to today’s version of the University of Virginia. From my “Doing Fieldwork” engagement, it is easy to see how much other people influence our own perceptions and ideas, so I think that Learned Sciences are an essential part of a college education.
