  • I created a CTZN account, I am neil@ctzn.one. I like many things about Hypercore Protocol so interested to see how this works. I am guessing it has more of a P2P model, similar to the Beaker chat, with the servers acting as 'pubs'. That said, the idea of another chat silo doesn't fill me with joy, so I wonder where the data is stored. I still think the IndieWeb (or Solid) approach is the best philosophy (for me personally).
  • Reading up a bit more on speculative outlines from Andy Matuschak - here. I like this idea that every time you write a new evergreen note, you add it to a speculative outline and let them grow organically. On that point, I prefer Ton's nomenclature - notes, notions and emergent outlines.
  • I currently make far more notes than notions. But this pipeline makes it clearer in my head about how notes become notions become outlines. So I feel now I can see why I want to make more concerted effort to make notions.
  • A useful note for me from Andy Matuschak on this - How to process reading annotations into evergreen notes. I have plenty of reading annotations. It's about processing them into notions. Let's look at a recent one.

    • I think while I'm looking at a topic that is new to me, my notions might often be questions. This is fine:

    Questions also make good note titles because that position creates pressure to make the question get to the core of the matter. […] The goal […] is to eventually drop the question mark, refactoring it into declarative/imperative notes.

    Prefer note titles with complete phrases to sharpen claims
