- Neil's Digital Garden
- nowtions / top o'mind. Broader themes I'm thinking about. (textual, manual updates, pretty up-to-date)
- read my journal or my stream (up-to-date blast of near everything - What's the difference between my journal and my stream?)
- look at the recent changes (automatically updated)
- try this interactive journey (out of date)
- engage the Captain's Log (this is the most fun, visual, and out of date)
- navigate the map (messy, out-of-date, visual)
- Listened: Rethinking infrastructure: the case for social investment
- Pleased to be coming up with a few more notions now. In the interests of keeping track of what I'm thinking about, as a kind of mishmash of speculative outlines, now pages, and Spaced repetition, I'm going to have a make a page called (awfully) nowtions, which is a list of latest notions.
- Citizen participation platforms: Decidim, Your Priorities, Consul
- Could you describe Agora as a citizen participation platform for citizens of a virtual place?
- musicForProgramming mix #1 by Datassette is rad.
- Stumbled on a software suite for UK town and parish councils. Managing allotments, playgrounds, cemeteries, planning, inspections, etc etc. This stuff is kind of fascinating, e.g. https://www.edgeitsystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/AdvantEDGE-Allotments.pdf
- Sucks that this is one business somewhere and of course it all appears to run on Microsoft tooling.
- I think all this should be a libre stack, supported and set up locally by local tech coops, working together and committing back to the stack.
- YunoHost has a really interesting governance structure, involving special interest groups, a council, and consensus for decision making.
- Did a bit of gardening on Interlinking wikis.
- Having a 'nowtions' / 'top of mind' page in my digital garden is working well. I add new notions to it as they crop up, and visit it regularly which works as lowkey spaced repetition.
- "we cannot depend upon structures to do the work of culture" – Free, Fair and Alive
- Jammed: Moderat - Seamonkey
- Maggie Appleton has dropped an update to her awesome A Brief History & Ethos of the Digital Garden page, and it now has a section The Six Patterns of Gardening. The patterns she lists chime excellently with how I view digital gardens. Her page is the best intro to them, IMO.
- Culture and structure
- IndieForums looks nice. Seems like it might be a good catalyst for some Blogchains and hyperconversations.
