What is a digital garden?

It's a proof of how much technology dominated our lives, that's for sure. Francis Bacon, the philosopher and not the artist, understood gardens as something divine, β€œwithout which, buildings or palaces are but gross handy-works”; gardens were first planted by God itself. Well, digital gardening is nothing short of divine, and as always it is paired with a human side. Here you'll find notes, concepts, thoughts, writings and more. Be welcome.

Welcome to our living hypertext notebook. This notebook will continue to evolve going into the future and is by no means a finished product- as such, pages exist at varying stages of completion. Please leave comments to further the discussion and help direct its evolution.

All you need to do is click on what is interesting. This is a special trait of this website - hypertext notebooks are designed for exploratory browsing. In a linear piece of writing, all ideas would be sequenced into one narrative. In hypertext writing, the narrative is emergent and the ideas are associative. It is like a book where the pages rearrange themselves for you based on your current curiosity each time you revisit. For more on what this is, see [[Q- What is a hypertext notebook]]?

The goal of this research project is to find data structures and interfaces that support synthesis and innovation in a decentralized discourse graph.

Some suggested starting points:

Some specific how-tos:

  • Pages have tags to indicate what type of node it is, which is also color coded. Hover preview or navigate to the page to learn its type.
  • Builders: View this as a framework for navigating the idea maze, and form your own conclusions about the claims, questions, and trails between them.
  • Hover your mouse over a link to see a preview of its content
  • If a page is empty, look through its backlinks! If a page isn't empty... you can still look through its backlinks! Those are all of the times where the ideas presented in the page were used in context.
  • If a page is not yet created, the hyperlink will appear to be faded.
  • When you see a faded hyperlink like [[@cataliniMicrogeographyDirectionInventive2017]], note that it's a Zotero citekey, and if you take the text, separate out the words, and search in Google Scholar, you will likely find the paper for more information if you are interested.
  • Email hello@robhaisfield.com for personal inquiries or private questions, but please defer to public comments when possible, as other people may have the same question as you!

You can browse current and past [[Projects]]. These are mainly small [[Vancouver]] focused things, I'm pretty busy as the founder of [[Fission]].

Starting with the [[Startup]] note, there are various operations guides, products, and recommendations to explore.

If I haven't sent it to you already, you should read [[When Tailwinds Vanish: The Internet in the 2020s]].

The [[Gumroad No Full Time Employees]] article is also a good read.

  • An [[index]].
    • To this [[digital garden]].
    • If you are reading this in [[an Agora]], you should see it in the context of several other indexes -- potentially one for each user contributing to that particular Agora :)
      • You can add your own by keeping an index.md file in your garden and contributing it to the Agora.
      • If the Agora index gets too noisy (as the Agora grows) we might want to implement [[ranking]] and [[filtering]] algorithms. These will of course be open source and community driven.
    • The following are maybe interesting entry points to this garden, and to the Agora at large. Beyond the notes in the nodes themselves, check for backlinks.

Matthew's Index

Hi, I'm Matthew Thomas ([[@mwt/identity]]) you can find my things at [[@mwt/README]].

Welcome to my little corner of the Agora.

Find out more info about [[Me]]

What I'm thinking about: [[Governance]] [[Coordination]] [[Social Media]] [[Incentives]] [[Protopia]] [[Science-Fiction]]

This knowledge graph is a work in progress that will eventually become a specification for the unrival protocol.

Unrival is a protocol that can be used to create bottom-up, distributed social credit networks. These networks can track the credibility of their member agents, whose actions may lead to accumultation or loss of credit (a proxy for credibility).

Agents of disjoint networks with very different notions of credibility -- divided by political or religious differences, for example -- can nonetheless exchange credit, because Unrival ledgers implement the recursive credit-commons-protocol.

The intended effect is the rectification-of-names. In colloquial terms, this means making sure things are what they say they are (at least within the confines of an Unrival network)

Ultimately, the goal is to create a foundation for effective decentralized governance. We believe in rules over rulers. And since Unrival is adaptive, principles over rules.

To learn more, have a look at the whitepaper: https://github.com/unrival-protocol/documentation/blob/main/source/whitepaper.org

Welcome to the [[Agora of Flancia]]!

This [[Agora]] is a [[Knowledge Commons]].

If you don't know what the above means (yet), don't fret: it just means it is a space that a community can build by pooling together resources, information, intentions. The Agora tries to integrate user contributions into a useful social (higher level) construct while preserving individual voices.

When you visit an Agora location, you visit a [[node]] in a shared graph -- which depending on usage can mean a topic, a pattern, or just an arbitrarily named location. There you will find all resources that the Agora thinks have a claim to be in that node, either directly by name or indirectly by association. By default all relevant resources will be shown one after the other, but more sophisticated interactions are possible.

If you would like to join this Agora, please refer to [[Agora signup]].

The [[Agora Platform]] you are (likely) reading this in is [[Free Software]]. If you would like to contribute or are interested in running your own Agora, please refer to [[Agora install]] and consider joining [[Flancia Collective]] or reaching out to a member. We are a loose collection of people who [[work in public]] developing this Agora.

Thank you for visiting the Agora. May you be happy!

Ahoy there!

We recently moved from [[etherpad]] to [[hedgedoc]] for the default stoa, so some data is missing. It will be restored at a later time.

As of [[2021-12-19]], [[stoa]] docs are auto imported into the Agora as full blown resources after ~1 minute from editing on average.
