Social media analyzed as Status as a Service software. It gave me some insights as to why my usage of these platforms has decreased as I’ve grown older and how my own decisions and interests have been influenced by unconscious status seeking. Birth of a new field of twistronics. Particularly interesting is the hint at dynamic material engineering. Sounds like programmable matter. An interesting take on the Re-fragmentation of American culture by Paul Graham.

GTD in Roam

GTD in Roam

 -  read

Update Nov 14, 2020: After some experimentation I returned to using Trello for GTD. Roam is well suited for learning and deep work, but not for juggling a lot of small actions. In particular, clarifying/organizing tasks on Roam mobile was painful due to its slow startup and text based input. (Trello on the other hand is fast to start and has dropdowns for moving actions to different lists.) Roam may be better paired with another task management system.
