• Thinking about my music listening strategy a bit today. Finding and listening to music in a way that supports artists gives the finger to the big corps. What's yours?
  • If I wanted to convert my org-roam files for use in Agora, I think the main issue would be lack of wikilinks for internal links. I could make use of a filter function on links to resolve that, I imagine. (I've already got a script for converting a whole folder of org files to markdown).
  • I think I like the bulleted day log style that for example Flancian uses. A bullet for each log, not a new heading. I will try this for a while. To be determined however, how this maps up to the IndieWeb notion of notes and which ones I publish on my stream.
  • I have both a private journal and wiki, as well as this public one. They are two completely separate org-roam databases. There's a slight disconnect between the two, which introduces some friction when I'm thinking about where I should be writing something.
  • Ton mentions that he does not like the idea of publishing his notes to the web. "To me that is unthinkable: my notes are an extension of my thinking and a personal tool. They are part of my inner space. Publishing is a very different thing, meant for a different audience (you, not me), more product than internal process". This is very interesting, I'd like to spend some time to reflect on it.
  • Also trying out Flancian's method of tagging people as person. Not sure where that will get me, but interested to see.
  • I watched the webinar The Indie Researcher: Tools for thought and internet academia yesterday. It was interesting, more discursive than really actionable advice, but a few takeaways that I liked:
    • being an indie researcher should be about being curious in public - not necessarily being an expert in some domain with a position to defend (I think Anne-Laure said this)
    • being 'indie' doesn't mean you just do it all yourself - it's very much about discussion and community, too
    • it might free you to do some things that might not happen in an academic environment
  • Feeling really happy that Trump lost / Biden won. Biden might not be about to bring in a socialist revolution, but holy fuck at least he's not Trump. It feels good for there to be a positive piece of news for once.
  • Experimenting with placing my daily logs in a journal subfolder. They would then be ready for being incorporated in to an Agora. I think it'll be nicer that way just from a general tidyness perspective, too.
