I'll first describe what is the current state of affairs. This does not necessarily align with the way I desire things to be.
1 Current state of affairs
I write my journal in org-roam. It is a bulleted list of thoughts. It is read-only - noone can interact with it directly. (Though of course, people could annotate it with hypothesis, or something similar). It is not structured - you could not subscribe to items within it in a feed reader, say. It is public, and is thus filtered - despite the name, I don't put much personal or intimate things in this public journal.
I publish to my stream via micropub and WordPress, and syndicate it to Mastodon. My stream allows for comments and interactions.
What goes in my stream is generally a subset of my journal. But responses to comments in my stream are not necessarily included in my journal. (Though likely pulled in to my garden in the relevant place.)
2 A desire for how things should be
Not sure. It's fine at the moment. Just a vague feeling that perhaps they should be combined. But this might be mistaken.
3 Elsewhere in the garden
Notes that link to this note (AKA backlinks).
- 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- try this interactive journey (out of date)
- engage the Captain's Log (this is the most fun, visual, and out of date)
- navigate the map (messy, out-of-date, visual)
- Away from reality for a few hours, I am drinking coffee, writing in my wiki, listening to Atlas by Bicep, and having galaxy brain moments.
- What's the difference between my journal and my stream?
- Chorus of voices
- It could be interesting to have an action in Agora that forks (or merges) someone else's node in to my own content store.
- Similar to what one does in FedWiki.
- In Agora, however, given the way nodes are all displayed together on one page, you might end up with a lot of duplicated content.
- Similar to the above on wiki and dialogic: "Good digital note taking tools easily blend into online conversations"
