I watched Joker last night. It was undoubtedly well made. Joaquin Phoenix is a fantastic actor. The eat the rich vibe I am on board with, but it had a kind of incel vibe too that was unpleasant.
Season 2 of node club has begun!
- And with impeccable timing the latest issue of Gordon Brander's newsletter is on the topic: All you need is links.
- There was a lot of nuance from the chat yesterday, but I think the conclusion was along the lines of: sometimes it's useful to have one-directional links, and this is what tags are. You can do that with wikilinks fine, but having a specific syntax for them enables filtering them out of other views (e.g. graph views).
org-publish-current-filefeels slower to me. Since updating to org-roam v2.2.0?

“Scientific management, for all its pretensions, was less about determining ideal working methods and more about shattering this tremendous source of worker power. By breaking apart each work process into carefully scrutinized component tasks, Taylor had cracked the secret of labor’s advantage, thereby giving management complete mastery over the productive process. The modernizing terminology of “science” and “efficiency” masked the prerogatives of discipline and control of workers. In political economist Harry Braverman’s estimation, “Taylor raised control to an entirely new plane when he asserted as an absolute necessity of adequate management the dictation to the worker of the precise manner in which work is to be performed.”
