Wherein @mhuebert lays out the case for @RoamResearch and major parts of the next 6 month's roadmap.

To be clear, I've never met Matt.

Have heard about him and his work from two sources in past 6 weeks.

This is just what it looks like when you're looking at the [[Adjacent Possible]] -- different minds coming to same conclusion.
11 months before we incorporated.
Programming is the easiest - and probably highest leverage starting point for this -- but if you solve the problem well the implications are EXCESSIVELY far reaching.

As @balajis pointed out in podcast with @david_perell -- Tutorials have built in fact checking - every reader is testing material sentence by sentence (both for accuracy and for effectiveness at knowledge transfer)

I hate the general idea of it, but if it was just me calling people unexpectedly when I'd been up for more than 36 hours...

Not enough people trying to solve hard problems have a regular practice of "Hammock Time"

This is about Step One.

One of my all time favorite talks.

By @richhickey

Took an hour to meditate/think each of last two days.

Been out of practice far too long. Forgot how amazing it is.
More importantly - forgot how much I ENJOY this!

Somehow got in my head in the past few months that meditation was a chore, and something I SHOULD do...

Turned a thing I love and which helps me feel better into a stick to beat myself with.

Criticize by creating.

Libraries are some of our best govt run infrastructure, attract some of the best intentioned civic minded people, and still really held back by inhumane bureaucracy.

Ben Franklin started first private library in US.

Seems good time for competition here.
I think 80% of value of libraries now is access to computers, and a safe and quiet space to learn and think.

Imagining a private library network that just provided that, (plus more support for techically challenged) and was open closer to 24/7

I heavily relied on libraries when I was living in a van.

For place to work, internet, place to host learning meetups

This is not a business idea, its a better place for donations than bloated university bureaucracy

Media is the meth of the masses.

Summary of narratives I heard in 2020:

The left: Republicans want to murder people like you and make your way of life illegal

The right: Democracts want to murder people like you and make your way of life illegal

Both: Not voting is UNAMERICAN
Pro tip:

Majority of your friends who support BLM or Biden are not communists ready to cheer on death squads, or neoliberals praying for another middle east war.

Majority of your family members who cast a ballot for Trump are not fascists that want to put minorities in cages.
You think the billions spent last year didn't affect you - that they just did it for FUN.

Things I wasn't expecting in 2020.

I'm now a Scottish Lord.
Next step: Tapestries

Life is weirder with highly competent "Chaotic Good" friends

Thanks @MikejNorman
