This is an experiment toward [[A Public Notebook]] for me, Steen Comer.
I do like the idea of [Digital gardens](https://publish.obsidian.md/hub/05+-+Concepts/Digital+garden), a term which I've seen bandied about quite a bit in the social spaces I frequent online. The problem, not with the sites themselves, or the idea of Digital Gardens, but just for my personal needs, is that they tend to be mostly be _about_ Digital Gardens. This is for me an example of the [[The Switched on Bach Hypothesis]], and while there's absolutely nothing wrong with pioneering work, I haven't been able to bring myself to add to the signal in that space for various reasons that, if I explained them at any length, would be exactly the kind of [[Recursion|ouroboros]] I'm trying to avoid. To put it another way, [Andy](https://notes.andymatuschak.org/About_these_notes) is doing the good work; it's time for the rest of us to use the tools he built to make something else.
So, in an attempt to avoid that, I will hopefully be populating this page eventually with some links to starting points of topics, as I actually add more here. My plan is to add ideas in here as they become developed enough in my private notebook that they may be legible to some degree to people outside of me. So, if you've come across this and there's three pages here, imagine me doing the hand-to-the-camera-lens thing while yelling "not yet! Not yet!" And Ignore the file structure to the left. I know I do.
Unlike most publications using this method, this one will specialize in opinionated, subjective, and conceptually illegible.
I am primarily a writer of fiction and tabletop role-playing games, as well as an academic copy editor. About which more at [mediapathic.net](http://mediapathic.net/) (with the caveat that at time of press that site is _incredibly_ out of date, which is on my list to fix). When I write games it's mostly for Privateer Press in the [Iron Kingdoms](https://home.privateerpress.com/ikrpgrequiem/) setting (the books can be found [here](https://store.privateerpress.com/games/iron-kingdoms-rpg/books-and-accessories/).) If you want to mail me, I'm [available](mailto:[email protected]
This site is written in [Obsidian](https://obsidian.md) (mostly: when I'm feeling particularly on a tear I switch to vim, which is one of the great things about Obsidian) and published using Obsidian Publish. It makes this sort of thing terribly easy, if you're interested, check it out.
