I aim for my wiki to be a kind of exobraindump (uploading my mind into heavily linked text), a model of myself (PSM). The wiki is a story-telling device that reuses older stories to reconstruct new ones; if it is a memory palace or garden, it's one that is evolving toward externalizing the relationship between our sensibilities and cognition (for the sake of something else).

* motivation

There are lots of cool links which I might never get to explore

However I did spend time 'curating' them, so perhaps they could serve as a kick off point for someone else

why?

delegate link processing to the outside world. Maybe someone runs into them and gets inspired #extendedmind

basically explain, which stuff I maintain and which stuff I keep as a dump. seems like a good compromise

[2020-04-13] Tanami/websights: Just a personal web directory of stuff that I want to keep in my head.

my theory: all people eventually reach the point where they accrue enough debris that it becomes necessary to distribute it in order to move forward with their thinking

yes, so much this

so I want a personal wiki similar to what Nikita Voloboev got, but with org-mode [[blog]] [[pkm]]

gitbook has got nice almost realtime search but only supports markdown. also they are not open source?

https://github.com/qdot/org-gitbook – weird thing, split my headings into different pages
had to package-install ox-gfm first

  • [2019-12-02] dunno, maybe starting with single page with links dump (sorted by tags then date?) and that wouldn't even require index?
    ignore priorities at first?
  • [2019-12-02] one simple thing to do would be just generating html pages (with normal emacs export?) and then running JS indexer against HTML pages? could do when blog is compiled

tedious to upgrade though, but a good start?

  • [2019-12-03] maybe, display everything as a single page, then it's easy to search?

[2019-12-03] related: is there plugin for fuzzy/stemming search in firefox? [[search]] [[browsers]]

[2021-01-16] even if it's just a very raw dump, chances are someone might run into them while googling or searching on github

* current implementation

via native emacs org-mode export, see https://github.com/karlicoss/exobrain-compiler/blob/master/src/build.py

[2020-01-03] Mirror org-org export, It could be public, under version control and allow for privacy controls [[pkm]]

[2020-11-15] logseq/logseq: A privacy-first, open-source platform for knowledge sharing and management. [[logseq]]

figuring it out as an extra interface, and for the graph

maybe each page got main content, and then just related links/highlights below?

[2020-12-15] UOMF: Linking Headings

So I kept using :ID:.

def ned quick capture.. and then maybe dispatch items via tags [[org]]

need to support self tags in TOC? when I specify custom TOC header they don't seem to work, shit.

do not emit empty <tag> and nbsp?? [[org]]

trying to use org-ql, but not sure if it's that good for tag cloud

maybe useful for tag summaries?

'--directory', root_dir / 'src/org-ql',
'--directory', root_dir / 'src/ts.el',
'--directory', root_dir / 'src/peg',
'--eval', f'''
(progn
(message "%s" (org-ql "{input_dir}/memex.org" "memex"))
)
'''.strip(),

scrolling org-mode into active in the sidebar

from mdbook

// Scroll sidebar to current active section
var activeSection = document.getElementById("sidebar").querySelector(".active");
if (activeSection) {
    // https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Element/scrollIntoView
    activeSection.scrollIntoView({ block: 'center' });
}

on tag click – search over all tags

maybe group by tags? could even do it via orgparse

output links (at least the ones with tags) to pinboard?

might need a two-step process for a proper diff

not sure what to do about filetags?

[2021-01-04] make public generated files read only?

maybe generate TITLE, set to filename (so logseq doesn't stumble over it) [[logseq]] [[org]]

* alternative ways to build it

[2019-12-22] ok, ox-hugo generates some odd artifacts, perhaps would be easier with vanilla md export [[blog]]

[2021-01-16] it's very cool, but similar problems to mdbook – if it's not mardown in the first plays, gonna be a lot of work to maintain org->md conversion, and nothing beats emacs

https://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/comments/b68k3v/markbook_a_replacement_for_gitbookmdbook_written/

I regarded Gitbook as a FOSS traitor, since it has all but abandoned it's open-source tool for a proprietary web app.

[2020-03-06] it's a new project, not sure what's the benefit over mdbook

seems that github codespaces would be perfect for it?

maybe tag-based exporting? export/noexport tags for hieriarchies/whole files? let it be a mess with one huge page?

write a tool to analyse tags [[tagging]] [[pkm]]

  • the tags that are the most common, deserve pages
  • rest are okay to keep adhoc?
  • custom agendas for tags (top level only?)
  • search is really important..

[2021-01-23] graph [[logseq]]

  • repulsive force: charges (forceManyBody)

    • distanceMin is interesting (e.g. set to 1000000). pushes unrelated stuff far, but it ends up clumping
    • distanecMax – if I lower it, it ends up clumping + some circular artifacts (although they might be intesting too!)
    • strenght: setting to something like -400 effectively has the same effect as default zoom? they are just a bit more spread apart
      ok, -200 is good enough
  • attractive force: forceLink

    return 1 / Math.min(count[link.source.index], count[link.target.index]);
    
    • defaultStrenght: low value makes it appear like a blob
    • defaultStrength: smth like 10 completely breaks the simulation?
    • changing min to max results in 'leafy' nodes pushed very far apart
    • adding Math.pow(count, 2) – weird. I guess pow has similar effect and reduces the force effectively
    • changing distance to large values – again, weird cicrular artifacts??
      I guess it's sort of an 'expected distance'? and at some point it's dominated by the repulsion anyway. default 30 is good enough

wtf? priorities are displayed in the graph now? [[logseq]]

for now, suppressing in the config…

I guess sibling tags have a bigger weight than parent tags (and especially filetags?) [[logseq]]

e.g. sometimes file has a filetag, but a task is there because it's related for example to exobrain.
but then it's gonna link the while filetag with the exobrain, which is somewhat misleading

[2020-04-03] maybe sort by priority/date on export? or specify sort order in properties [[exobrain]]

  • use org-ql-search summary (e.g. broken down by tags)

There is certainly beauty in randomness.

How about an option which presents you a visualisation of a set of random connections in the daily notes (as a link to a new data visualisation page)? Maybe with options to turn on and off certain branches of thought (in cases you are working on something specific). This way you get your daily inspiration right in your daily notes (or you can turn it off if you don't like it).

Ultimately, it would be very unique if these random connections also generate a page with all block and page references to the visualised links. Basically you forgo the problem of an empty page, not knowing where to start.

I am a Social Scientist and my daily bread and butter is to synthesise knowledge, reproduce it, change it and generate new knowledge. However, most importantly, use that knowledge to have an impact in non-academic contexts (where it matters the most, I think).

[2021-02-14] whoa, need to go through athens discord to figure it out… https://discord.com/channels/708122962422792194/708156396906086468

https://github.com/athensresearch/athens/discussions/605

hmm. use external git repo that commits evey minute? it would track changes automatically and solve all of my timestamp issues? [[orgmode]] [[exobrain]]

404 page, suggest to search or look on github history [[exobrain]]

principle: as much as possible should be public [[exobrain]]

Use cdots in toc to indicate level? [[exobrain]]

Need a link to homepage.. [[exobrain]] [[blog]]

[2021-03-13] Fabien Benetou's PIM | Site / AllRecentChanges [[exobrain]]

recent changes is nice…
but gonna be tricky with org-mode
maybe enough to generate a view sorted by timestamps

need to render todo state changes [[exobrain]]

generate tag summaries to eliminate the least common? [[exobrain]]

Digital Garden

  • A digital garden is a loose collection of hyperlinked notes (personal, or project scoped) that are maintained over long periods of time; like if you were tending to a garden over the years.
  • Digital gardens benefit from [[compounding effect]]s: they gain usefulness over time.
    • Hypothesis: their usefulness goes up superlinearly w.r.t. nodes added, as a lot of the value is in the networking: the relations between concepts, events, pieces of information that build up over time.

Digital garden

Recently-ish popular term for a kind of public personal PKM / wiki.

Also see [[the Garden]] metaphor for some history.

What

an online space at the intersection of a notebook and a blog, where digital gardeners share seeds of thoughts to be cultivated in public.

You mean blogging, right?

Sounds a bit like blogging, no?

I prefer to think of digital gardening as a new variation of blogging. Blogging that is:

  • Constantly evolving
  • Less performative
  • Community-focused

🪴 Planting Your Digital Garden

Contrary to a blog, where articles and essays have a publication date and start decaying as soon as they are published, a digital garden is evergreen: digital gardeners keep on editing and refining their notes.

You mean personal websites, right?

I tend to think of it more as that intersection of notebook/blog/wiki, but it is sometimes also framed as 'old school [[personal website]]'.

A growing movement of people are tooling with back-end code to create sites that are more collage-like and artsy, in the vein of Myspace and Tumblr—less predictable and formatted than Facebook and Twitter.

Digital gardens let you cultivate your own little bit of the internet

Digital gardens explore a wide variety of topics and are frequently adjusted and changed to show growth and learning, particularly among people with niche interests. – Digital gardens let you cultivate your own little bit of the internet

Why

“With [[blogging]], you’re talking to a large audience,” he says. “With digital gardening, you’re talking to yourself. You focus on what you want to cultivate over time.”

Digital gardens let you cultivate your own little bit of the internet

Through them, people are creating an internet that is less about connections and feedback, and more about quiet spaces they can call their own.

“Gardens … lie between farmland and wilderness,” he wrote. “The garden is farmland that delights the senses, designed for delight rather than commodity.”

Why not

Should you really publish your half-baked notes-to-self to the Internet?

To me that is unthinkable: my notes are an extension of my thinking and a personal tool. They are part of my inner space. Publishing is a very different thing, meant for a different audience (you, not me), more product than internal process. At most I can imagine having separate public versions of internal notes, but really anything I publish in a public digital garden is an output of my internal digital garden.

100 Days in Obsidian Pt 6: Final Observations – Interdependent Thoughts

To be honest, I don’t see much appeal in publishing your entire unfiltered notes to the web. Synthesize interesting portions of them occasionally into coherent blog posts that other people can consume without digging through a forest of links, backlinks, and footnotes.

You're probably already doing it

Believe it or not, you've probably already started planting the seeds of your digital garden. You don't necessarily need an organized wiki on your self-hosted personal site. Posting on social media is still the most common form of digital gardening.

🪴 Planting Your Digital Garden

Agree with that wholeheartedly. Although the [[indiewebber]] in me says that if you're doing it on a big social media platform, it won't work out in the long run.

Twin Pages

  • Seeds. Seed your garden with quality content and cultivate your curiosity. Plant seeds in your mind garden by taking smart personal notes (taking raw notes is useless). These don't need to be written in a publishable form.
  • Trees. Grow your knowledge by forming new branches and connecting the dots. Write short structured notes articulating specific ideas and publish them in your digital garden. One note in your digital garden = one idea. (what you're currently reading is such a note) Do not keep orphan notes. Thread your thoughts.
  • Fruits. Produce new work. These are more substantial—essays, videos, maybe a book at some point. The kind of work researchers and creatives may hope will help them live beyond their expiration date.

personal knowledge management

Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a process of collecting information that a person uses to gather, classify, store, search, retrieve and share knowledge in their daily activities and the way in which these processes support work activities)

Personal knowledge management - Wikipedia

Is it specifically work focused?

Came across Harold Jarche via Ton, he teaches about Personal Knowledge Mastery, and talks about [[seek, sense, and share]]]]. (Less interested in the focus on mastery and leadership, but I reckon most of it is still applicable outside of that lens).
