I’m good at keeping things in my head.

·

That’s a bad thing, because it makes me feel like I don’t have to write things down. In reality, I’m losing a lot of information. I find interesting things and think about stuff all the time, but almost immediately forget them.

·

I’m not actually that good at keeping things in my head. There’s so much information loss.

·

I got into the sourdough baking fad last year. I didn’t write anything down as I baked a bunch of different breads. I don’t remember anything; I effectively learned nothing from that experience.

·

I could link to articles and studies I’ve seen about this, but I can’t remember where they are.

·

Recently I’ve tried writing everything down. When I find something cool, I add a link to it. As I do stuff, I write down my thoughts. The difference is amazing; even in just a few weeks I have a huge amount of things to work with.

·

I keep finding myself wanting to share this information, but I didn’t know how. I could tweet it, but I don’t like that format. I’ve also reached the point of too many followers so I don’t feel like sharing every weird thought.

·

Twitter is too ephemeral. blogs are too permanent. I want something in-between.

·

Nobody reads blogs anymore. I don’t have time for writing blog posts anyway. They’re too formal, too long, and annoying to manage.

·

Down with blogs. I never want to write stupid metadata/frontmatter again just to post some thoughts.

·

down with formality

·

instead of a list of posts, this website is now a living graph of ideas

·

how does it work? I use Roam to write stuff down. All I have to do is write stuff down under a specific block. All of this is under “Thinking in public public” on my current daily note, so it shows up here

·

that’s it. that’s all I have to do. In fact, as I’m writing this it’s immediately showing up on my website

·

in the future I’ll expose a full graph on my ideas here with backlinks and everything

·

let’s get back to quirky websites full of weird ideas

·

Oh nice

·

I forgot that I hooked up discord to these public blocks so I can just write from discord too. this message is from my personal discord
