    1. search can’t be fixed solely by focusing on the interface or engine, because it depends upon the foundation of content and metadata, which in turn are shaped by governance, incentives, and metrics.

      Metadata supports search

    2. often the path to a good information architecture is better knowledge management

      Better KM -> better IA

    1. In this world I think we have two kinds of knowledge: One is Planck knowledge, that of the people who really know. They’ve paid the dues, they have the aptitude. Then we’ve got chauffeur knowledge. They have learned to prattle the talk. They may have a big head of hair. They often have fine timbre in their voices. They make a big impression. But in the end what they’ve got is chauffeur knowledge masquerading as real knowledge.
    2. The situation has provided a cue; this cue has given the expert access to information stored in memory, and the information provides the answer. Intuition is nothing more and nothing less than recognition.
    3. You understand it better if you go at it the way we do, which is to identify the main stupidities that do bright people in and then organize your patterns for thinking and developments, so you don’t stumble into those stupidities.
    4. It’s ignorance removal…It’s dishonorable to stay stupider than you have to be.
    1. Assuming there is indifference in the matter of choice between competing commodities or services, but that in the case of such commodities or services the labor standards involved vary, the inferior standard, if brought in this manner into competition with a higher standard, will drive it out, or drag the higher down to its level. This is effected by the opportunity of under-selling which comes, where in such cases human well-being is sacrificed to material ends. The superior standard, not being recognized or demanded, is unable to hold its own, and in time disappears. This Law is just as real and relentless in its operation in Industry as Gresham’s Law of the precious metals is with respect to money and the mechanism of exchange. Indeed, a more accurate exposition would describe both as manifestations of one and the same law, which I propose to call the Law of Competing Standards

      The Law of Competing Standards

    1. Jonathan Edwards

      Meta-comment: if these kinds of Logos tags with data type references could be dereferenced into their corresponding ref.ly URI (here https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JonathanEdwards_Person ), this annotation could take you straight to Factbook.

      That means any Logos user, or Faithlife staff, could annotate the web with links to Logos that would be

      • visible to others (with the annotation view)
      • displayable from Factbook as the reverse link

    1. BlockBuilder

      Observable HQ is the successor to the now-defunct BlockBuilder.

    2. For SVG I recommend starting with this short but sweet SVG primer by Scott Murray. Play around with manually creating SVG elements and seeing how they work. Use a tool like BlockBuilder to quickly get started without setting up any kind of development environment. You may want to refer to the MDN reference site for SVG. Once you’ve mastered the basics, check out SVG beyond mere shapes by Nadieh Bremer.

      Getting started with SVG

    1. d3-color and d3-color-schemes are not the only way to deal with color and if you’re just starting out, I’d suggest working with chroma.js rather than D3’s color utilities.

      Alternative for colors

    2. there are other libraries that do good animation, like GSAP, as well as animation solutions that are native to the method you (or your team) are using for DOM management.

      Alternative for animation

    3. animation in data visualization, while impressive and eye-catching, is a much lower priority than understanding how different chart types present data, how to properly design charts, understanding form in data visualization, and other aspects of data visualization practice.
    1. Happiness

      Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.

    2. Some of his entries are entitled things like, “Happiness,” “Heaven,” “Hell,” “Sabbath,” and so on.

      Similar to modern-day tagging systems.

    3. with

      -> "without"

    4. For me, using Google Keep has become an Edwardsian notebook of its own right.

      However, this depends on Google "keeping" your notes for the long-haul. Given their propensity to discontinue projects, that seems hazardous. At least Hypothesis provides a mechanism that's more open: i'm not sure whether it can be considered stable and secure for the long-term.

    1. In his intriguing book “The Rise Of Christianity,” sociologist Rodney Stark recalls the “Plague of Galun” which ravaged the Roman Empire in 164CE with a death toll of approximately 30% of the population.

      The great epidemic of the second century, which is sometimes referred to as the “Plague of Galen,” first struck the army of Verus, while campaigning in the East in 165 A.D.,
