It’s been another intense workweek. Here are a couple of things that caught my attention throughout:
- Robin Sloan’s ongoing game development notes in newsletter form, Perils of the Overworld have been a fascinating read, not just if you’re interested in games, but also in writing, technology (the last issue has some machine learning in it!), and so on. Recommended.
- I recently discovered Tom MacWright’s blog through his piece on organising his music library, which resonated strongly with me (my own setup is similar). There are gems of insight and writing throughout, but I especially recommend his book reviews section, which quite closely mirrors something I’m planning to build for my own website in the near future.
- Speaking of amazing websites, I’ve been studying Andy Matuschak’s Notes as I’m building my own knowledge management system based on the zettelkasten principle. The amazingness of the clarity with which the notes are written is matched only by the wonderfulness of the web app itself. Take a look!
I think that the weeknotes format will evolve a bit over time, as I find myself not really writing so much about what I’ve been doing, but rather about interesting things I came across. See you next week!
