Digital gardens for content creation
Blogs, news articles, podcasts, they all build an interconnected network of sources that are very valuable for anybody creating content online. Gwern has a very sophisticated approach, in which he actually stores each page he links to in order to make his website self-contained.
I need backups not just for my files, but for the web pages I read and use—they’re all part of my exomind. It’s not much good to have an extensive essay on some topic where half the links are dead and the reader can neither verify my claims nor get context for my claims.
But we can work at different degrees of technical complexity depending on what we want to achieve and we don't need to start right away with such a sophisticated tool-chain.
These are the other notes that link to this one.
