Cognitive Medium


  • metacognition topics, sometimes closer to second-order cybernetics, featuring feedback loops in learning

Research and Day-to-Day

  • I'm again really interested in Andy's meta-thoughts and amount of self-awareness that he brings into his work (metacognition)

Syntopic Reading

  • helps with seeing multiple takes on the same ideas, which helps with thinking for yourself (metacognition)

Thinking and Time

Understanding Requires Effort

  • realising how much effort is given to understanding something is a metacognitive skill

Memex Dreams

Worklogs also introduced me to the idea of writing as a thinking tool. Instead of trying to "come up" with a solution in my head, I write/draw through/with my thinking process. Writing is a great metacognition tool, it allows me to see my thinking, and debug the thinking process afterwards.
