👋 I'm Vlad Sitalo - the creator of Roam Garden. I like to build things and at times I wonder about:
What makes code readable? Can we define that objectively?
readability can be understood in computational terms
when you develop software you invent a language
What are the powerful applications of Spaced Repetition that we're not utilizing?
Spaced Repetition can be used to program attention
use multiple levels of processing information for learning & understanding
How do computational and design lenses mix?
design defines cognitive problems users need to solve
not stating your preferences clearly - imposes high computational costs on people you're communicating with
I feel like each self-respecting zettelkasten should bootstrap with a bunch of notes on how to take notes 😂. So you'll find a variety of meta evergreen notes throughout the garden 😉
How to find your path in the garden
Here's how navigation works:
What to look at
Follow some links above, take a look at graph, use a search bar if you are wondering if I wrote about some specific topic.
You can use make-public page's backlinks section as an index - every page in the garden has a link to it.
If you want to talk to me - you can do that via email, or Twitter 🙂
