flancia is our revolution.
- one revolution started today, at the very end of October 2021.
- meta here I'd love for the Agora to automatically fetch and link the Mastodon URL for the same resource. I could do this by hooking up moa.party to the Agora, but I think a better approach is probably universal: if the user crossposts, the Agora could perform a search for the matching resource and do this job without bridge-specific implementation details.
- I stumbled on Gordon Brander's newsletter - https://subconscious.substack.com/ - and have been poring through it. Some great thoughts on tools for thought.
- Tools for thought and conversation theory
We often talk about knowledge as if it is a storable commodity. We gain, gather, and transfer knowledge, share knowledge artifacts, build knowledge graphs.
Conversation Theory takes another view. It sees knowledge as conversational. Knowledge exists subjectively in our minds, and is constructed through conversation with others
A conversation can happen between yourself and yourself, across time, through the notes your past self took for your future self. An autopoietic system where information time travels between your future and past self in a meaningful cybernetic loop.
Sorted out the issue with case-sensitive org-roam completion - it was not actually an org-roam thing.
(setq completion-ignore-case t).
"Capture-organize-synthesize is like those glasses from They Live — when you look through this lens, it suddenly becomes clear that many of our creative tools are backwards or broken!"
- Some golden stuff here on how existing tools get these wrong - Unconscious R&D
I worry a bit that the tools for thought space tilts towards an individualistic outlook, e.g. 'how can I accumulate knowledge to monetise my Substack newsletter'. Even the collective knowledge management from the VC-backed offerings has a 'knowledge as capital' feel. Let's not let that happen and make sure all this is liberatory technology, yes?
