I'm using writing as a tool for thinking.
This is a part of my external brain, my digital garden.

The system currently contains 125 public notes, a small (but growing) subset of what I use in my personal knowledge management system.

Some interesting places to start could be collections on: Memex, Learning, VPL, Future Of Coding or End-User Programming.

Notes below are grouped by last edit time.
