Zettelkasten

Just a little note to mark the beginning of my Zettelkasten journey. While I’ve always had a commonplace book of sorts, all my life, and I’ve always taken tons of notes on books I pay attention to, I’ve never really been able to come up with a way of writing what I think syntopically. Or I can, but its like pulling teeth. Writing what I learnt in Antifragile, took months, and a lot of cursing through gritted teeth....

All the Stuff I Wanted to Share in 2022

I’ve been in this rut all year, and I don’t know how to get out of it. So I’m declaring thought / newsletter bankruptcy. I don’t know how to share what I collected, so I’ll just put a set of links down here to all of them. This is all the work/tech stuff. And this is all the other, personal / life stuff! Enjoy!

Maria Popova, on How Reading Is Like Love Now you are being read. Your body is being subjected to a systematic reading, through channels of tactile information, visual, olfactory, and not without some intervention of the taste buds....

Updated Poemfeed

Update: fixed Github link The little script I wrote in 2020, to get me my daily poetry fix, died a couple of months ago. Life got in the way of me, figuring out what was wrong. I finally got around to it today. A little bit of peeking under the hood revealed that Cloudflare did not like me using the Python Requests library to check the Poetry Foundation page. Or maybe it just did not like the useragent string that Requests gave it....
