    1. HOWTO useful to combine a [[foam]] garden with encrypted git repos in keybase.io.

      Shortcomings of today's WWWeb in comparison to what Xanadu has visioned.

    1. Merging distribute knowledge is an excersize on the abstractness of ontologies vs the practicality of schema-less graph knowledge.

      TIP: use carderne/signal-export to export from the desktop db.

      1st suggestion for maintaining my PC.

    2. Every couple of years I find myself facing the same old tired routine: migrating my stuff off some laptop or desktop to a new one, usually combined with an OS upgrade. Is there anything like the kind of luxuries we now consider normal on the server side (IaaS; Terraform; maybe Ansible) that can be used to manage your PC and that would make re-imaging it as easy as it is on the server side?

      Orger-emacs cheat sheet, from a person still using VSCode.

    2. I only use Emacs for org-mode stuff so far. For pretty much anything else I'm using VS Code.

      Emacs for org-mode, VSCode for anything else.
