I’ve had a long-running admiration of/obsession with Andy Matuschak’s working notes. This is partly based on the systems he uses (both the technical system he has built for himself and the note-taking methodology he uses), and partly because I think I’m generally impressed by people with deep expertise in a subject area—it doesn’t matter what; in Andy’s case, it happens to be the bases of knowledge work, but it could equally be someone who is a master woodworker, or a horologist, or a cobbler, or a PhD.

Is it wrong for a 40-something year old to want a LEGO set for Christmas? Because I would totally ask Santa for this 6,785-piece LEGO AT-AT, except I know Santa, and she would look at me like I'm an idiot if I asked her to get me an $800 LEGO set. But a minifigure-scale model like this is the stuff my dreams were made of as a kid. And it looks so awesome (and so do the build photos in the review)!

Why is it so hard to find a (relatively) simple method to sync a directory on a Mac with a directory on a Linux server over ssh? There are a bunch of complicated ways to do it, but I really can't be bothered messing about with them right now.

I came across the IndieWeb community recently and have spent a bit of time poking around the site; I'm already on board with ideas like "own your data", but they also outline a number of other concepts that I think I'd like to explore further and maybe incorporate here, like POSSE.
