    1. as individuals, we're bogged down by the deluge of information without right enough tools - new developments notwithstanding; collectively, there's the pervasive lack of effective mechanisms to help surface considered knowledge from the clutter. So, I guess you can't get enough cooperation-at-scale to address those issues, essentially revolving around text-mediated communication.

    1. collective intelligence and ability to address wicked problems together.

      the link between identity and collective intelligence is clear. If we would frame the conversations in terms of collective INTELLECT many of the conceptual traps would become visible

    2. but this is not human identity per se, or the digitalization of human identity.

      agree totally.

      Just the same way as making knowledge represenation of knowledge machine readable/transmitable does not mean that it is knowledge. Under favorable circumstances it may augment human capability to learn and make use of that leaning, Machines do not learn in that sense nor they have knowledge in the sense of being able to bring that learning to bare in awareness and action.

    1. And I love that the rules actually say you can take back your whole turn if you realise you’ve made a mistake half way through. I’m normally about table chat, but here I love the experience of experiments being rewarded – both by the game and fellow players high-fiving good combo moves.

    2. very thinky game

    3. his game is abstracted, it will make your brain ache and you will want to ignore your cards before its your turn as the whole board may change before then. For some this will be nothing but frustration – but for me, and everyone I’ve played with so far, it has instead been a delicious challenge perfect for those who love a tactical head-to-head – with a rather brittle layer of strategy placed precariously on top.

    1. I increasingly like the idea of all blocks having a single associated special "Queue" child block that collects anything dropped into it (and maybe also record where it was dragged from) until organized

      Prefer this But it remains context and experience dependent need to be high resolution configurable

    1. the question of where and how can outliner/graph database software augment the foraging/sensemaking/synthesis process is very big! I just completed my masters thesis on the role of context in literature reviewing under @joelchan86 and our lab has been and will continue to explore that topic (not exclusive to the outliner/graph database paradigm). I'll be sure to pass along findings from the lab that could influence our design decisions!

    1. @Johnny yeah exactly! I can imagine an augmented state of flow and a kind of ongoing conversation around meaning with myself through the existing knowledge via an interface that is anticipatory (and thus keeps me in flow). I don't have as much experience with these tools to have a long-term opinion on if this is important or not. But I know from my own experience coding research that I'd love for a tool that helps me do this better in the synthesis process.

    2. We are creating and will create vast amounts of value, and we should capture value proportionally. Being open-source shouldn't change that. In fact, arguably we should be capturing MORE value, not in spite of, but BECAUSE we're open-source.

    1. Subtext is an ongoing experiment in radically simplified programming. It is radical in that I am willing to throw away everything we know about programming and start from scratch

      Programming , the very idea considered harmful. Can software be liberated from programming per se.

    1. We’ve just lost the will to improve.

      More like a systematic bias against empowering people

      freedom is inconvenient

    2. But maybe I’m imaging things. Maybe the reason progress stopped in 1996 is that we invented everything.

      More like locked ourselves in every deeper into the worse is better philosophy, place oriented programming, and remain clueless about what software is. Most importantly the very idea of "programming" is a complete miss-conceptualization of what software is

    5. This is a serious security concern - domain names may expire or otherwise get taken over by malicious parties that should not have the ability to redefine the semantic content of past statements.

      Woke up to the brokenness of the Web at the protocol/conceptual level.

      How long will it take for people to get the brokenness of RDF itself? Well seemed a good idea at the time perhaps.

      Built for abuse

    1. The Underlay aims to secure such a collection as a public resource. It also gives chains of provenance a central place in its data model, to help tease out bias or error that can appear at different layers of assumption, synthesis, and evaluation.

      question results and remix more readily

    4. I believe this flexible compression not only helps synthesis right now, but also enables me to earn compound interest on the notes over time. One mechanism by which this happens is that the overhead for regaining context for my notes is reduced for my future self, and possibly for others as well, since the details are much more directly accessible through the three-part model. This is important, because the devil/diamond is in the details, and details fade over time from memory. I suspect that synthesis notes and systems that omit details (or at least make it hard to access details later), will have a much shorter half-life.

      compound interest indeed

    11. Both observation notes and context snippets are also part-of a page dedicated to the particular paper from which they came. In this way, other metadata such as the authors, institutions, year of publication, as well as high-level observations about the paper’s context (e.g., number of citations, status as preprint or peer-reviewed) are also explicitly available as context for the observation note.

      part-of a page dedicated paper metadata explicitly available

    12. The context snippets are linked to the observation note via indentation in the outline as well as via hyperlinks to their block references, all of which create explicit bi-directional links in the underlying database between the items.

    16. implement the typed distinction between entities (synthesis vs. observation vs. context snippet); typed distinctions between relations could significantly enhance the system's ability to augment human synthesis, but significant boosts in synthesis will likely accrue with implementation of only the three distinct artifacts (without explicit typed distinctions between relations).

    20. By convention, we write them in the past tense (to ground them in time), bind them to an assertor where possible (to ground them in the standpoint of the author), and tend towards lower levels of abstraction (to ground them in relevant particulars).
