    1. That’s right: you should be able to communicate with your system of notes. Your system will respond to your queries in a meaningful manner to which you both can relate. You ask, your notes answer. Ideally, both learn.

      like how i talk to alfred or emacs

    2. Writing clarifies your thinking. Thoughts and feelings are nebulous happenings in our mind holes, but writing forces us to crystalize those thoughts and put them in a logical order.

      nicely said, output promotes input

    1. . With org-mode, files scattered across many multiple files and only coherent through the agenda search disptacher or agenda/todo view feels, messier.

      again, the one file vs multiple file argument

    2. While you can fake hierarchical planning, once you get things into the Agenda or Todo view, organizing structure appears to be lost, which is very unfortunate since it destroys much of the metadata you have to contextualize a task.

      this is also not so fair...you can definitely set up individual project todo files, and have side-by-side windows of agenda and project file

    3. I spend all my time in the agenda view which means I have a tendency to overschedule, and looser items without deadline get shifted from week to week, which makes me worry I am focusing on the urgent rather than the important sometime. This actually is one of my very big concerns. That the focus on the minutiae of day to day tasks and ease of tracking obscures me not focusing on the big picture projects and strategic items.

      I think this is not the task of a todo management tool, but rather a reflection tool/system. org agenda is just for quick view of what needs to be done today (or a week), not for planning and reflection.

    4. Suddenly things like doing all your email in emacs or using it as your irc client seem like good ideas (despite the shortcomings), like you’ve been suddenly brain-washed by some weird cult

      so true

    5. Taskpaper is fantastic for organizing work, it’s support for tracking what has happened on tasks (and notes on them) is secondary.

      unnable to automatically track time, take longer notes to my future self, and logging the done task with easy search, are also I what find lackng in Things

    6. Most todo managers recognize that tasks often repeat at regular intervals. Taskpaper, not being date aware, has very limited support for repeating tasks (or habits) which makes things very manual as you move through your days and weeks.

      this is relating to another larger idea about todos: whether you manage it passively (been notified, either about duration, freqeuncy or task) or actively (open the app, see what need to be done)

    1. Perhaps it’s just the ability to see everything at once and then filter it down to what I need ot focus on, but also, it’s forcing me to plan and move things into realistic periods when I can get them done.

      that's a good point, relates to the bigger idea of project-based (in one file) or tag-based (in different files) todo management

    2. For some reason, the hierarchical lists in Taskpaper and the freeform tagging seem to work well for me in that regard. Not every thing I do is a project or an Area but just about everything I do can be denoted in hierarchical lists.

      taskpaper vs things vs org-mode

    1. Another possibility has occurred to me: is org-todo-keywords set in ~/.emacs.d/.local/custom.el? If you've used M-x customize or customize-set-value, those settings are saved into custom.el, and will have the highest precedence, over anything you set in ~/.doom.d.

      the exact issue with my doom emacs config! don't use M-x customize!

    1. this is a list of very useful online resources for writers (I'm trying to write more often and more dedicated now)

    1. this post is useful for considering different aspects of needs in a regular seminar

    2. I have set up a FAQ section of our discussion board. Unless your question involves a personal issue, please ask your question there so that everyone can benefit from the response.

      this is useful

    3. Remote Teaching Strategies Setting student expectations

      this is about making commitments, even in an online format, both parties should hold each other accountable

    1. Help students understand the logic behind which communication tools you are planning to use. For example: Email will be used for personal communication with the instructor, as well as weekly updates about the class The discussion tool will be used for weekly topic discussions The web conferencing tool Zoom will be used for learner’s bi-weekly small group synch chats, and for office hours.

      be explicit about different use scenarios for each tool

    2. Differentiate the uses and purposes of synchronous and asynchronous tools. Identify the benefits and limitations of each communication method.

      synchronous (live, real-time) vs asynchronous (not in real-time) is a good framework of categorizing tools

    1. Please don't complain that a submission is inappropriate. If a story is spam or off-topic, flag it. Don't feed egregious comments by replying; flag them instead. If you flag, please don't also comment that you did.

      this is an interesting approach

    1. The websites built on the JAM stack consist of three distinct parts, JavaScript, APIs and Markup.

      for a discussion on static website generator also see hacker news: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22519090

    2. Hugo takes a template and all the content of the website in a markup format and converts it to the HTML that can be hosted as is.

      content + template→html

    1. I'm trying to fight my perfectionism so figured a special page for posts in progress is a good compromise!

      this is a very unique approach: post work in progress. reminds of the star citadel fan fic project page, with sections for drafts and ideas. complete transparency in the workflow

    1. I feel that if people had better digital projections of their minds it'd be way easier to get to know them, find shared interests and have meaningful conversations

      digital projections, that's an interesting idea

    1. So, in short, choose the right tool for the job. But make sure it supports a Vim input system.

      short, concrete, very solid advice to the century long debate about editors!

    1. Working from a prioritized product backlog, breaking work into iterations, limiting work in progress, and regular reflection are just some of the concepts borrowed from agile that people can use to better manage their personal lives.

      unintentionally, these are also things I discovered on my own to be helpful for productivity (live for iteration), now I know the name for it.

    1. Perma.cc’s Partners

      most of the partners coming from law bk

    1. Users not affiliated with a registrar can create 10 links for free as a trial run, and then continue accessing Perma via a paid subscription.

      this is clearly a downside for free users, but a legit choice for keeping the service going

    2. How does Perma.cc work? You give Perma.cc the URL of the page you want to preserve and cite. Our software visits that URL, preserves what's there, deposits it into our collection, and gives you a unique URL (e.g. "perma.cc/ABCD-1234") - a "Perma Link" - that points to the record in our collection. You then can use that Perma Link in your citation to give readers access to a stable, accurate record of the source you referenced, even if the original disappears from the web.

      how does this compare to other web archive tools? is it really "permanent"? any disadvantages of this tool?

    1. why is board game so popular in Germany? does this award contribute to the healthy development of this market?

    1. This is a great entry way for researchers to self-learn concepts and key constructs from other fields, comes with easy-to-understand definition and important introductory publications on the topic

    1. Planning

      A very transparent way of author-reader communication, really give readers great anticipation. the whole website feels like a open-source project, with various media input (fan pic, character design, spotify play list)

  5. nixnet.services nixnet.services
    1. a great example of personal endeavour for data privacy and open internet

    1. we have observed various failure modes, such as repetitive text, world modeling failures (e.g. the model sometimes writes about fires happening under water), and unnatural topic switching.

      does this mean human are good at writing repetitive text, with nonsense world view, and jumping from topic to topic?

    2. In order to preserve document quality, we used only pages which have been curated/filtered by humans—specifically, we used outbound links from Reddit which received at least 3 karma. This can be thought of as a heuristic indicator for whether other users found the link interesting (whether educational or funny), leading to higher data quality than other similar datasets, such as CommonCrawl.

      That's an interesting definition of human language

    1. If one is in a more relaxed state, the variation between beats is high. In other words, the healthier the ANS the faster you are able to switch gears, showing more resilience and flexibility.

      this is different from what i expected, i thought a stable/less variant heart beat interval time is better

    1. Why will your users adopt annotation if it only works on your content?

      reminds me of Medium...

    1. Web annotations are an attempt to recreate and extend that functionality as a new layer of interactivity and linking on top of the Web

      I'm wondering whether "Danmaku" (overlayed video comments that's popular in Japan) can also be considered as a form of web annotation

    1. We first start with Treatment and Sex and their interaction as predictors of Pain. Then we include also Age and Duration. In the terminology of the general linear model, these two analyses correspond to an ANOVA and an ANCOVA, respectively.

      Response var: pain, Factors: treatment and gender, covariate: age and duration (continuous)
