  • a goal note is created when new space is created.
  • I've written some code to keep track of who is online and what space they're currently on.

    I just have to display it somewhere. It'll probably go in a panel.

  • I've started using webpack, so I will be able to compress some of the assets I serve up better.

Also, I wrote notes on what we talked about during your visit.

COUPLES <3

Any two people in a relationship need space. They could use space to create shared memories together. Get this right first, then start extending into entire families after we master couples.

This is a tool for brainstorming

Not for organizing thoughts. Being already overextended, it's kind of intimidating. But beautiful.

I love most questions with "Why?" because when answered they lead to either GOALS or REASONS.

I'd like to think we could explain "Why?" this system exists...

the future of ycth

  • It's going to stop being an iframe.
  • It's going to be a React component like the Who's Online panel.
  • It should load a lot faster.

I notice MetaNotes sometimes has a 503 gateway error, too. I'm going to eventually move MetaNotes off of RackSpace and on to a more performant server on DigitalOcean.

the crisis of popularity

Maybe popularity ought to follow along with how easily one can create a reflection of oneself on a website.

Facebook is a "mirror". One stares into the mirror all day like the Queen in Cinderella. It absorbs your thoughts but more it sends you a picture of one angle of yourself - a social self.

It'd be cool to see your friend's public updates in a ticker-panel of some kind on the right hand side someday... /spex

Who is online?

who

I can run this in the javascript console of my browser to find out who is online and what space they are in.

Note that a user can be in more than one space (due to multiple tabs and/or devices).

place cursor after the asterisk

tiny thing, where the note prepopulates with the "asterisk space" the cursor should be blinking after the last space, so that the first thing you type is the first "list item". if they just start typing then it'll render as a one-bullet list in that case, schooling them about list syntax...

maybe to be rendered as a "who's online" panel with green dots? it's superb to be swooped in on by a friend...

um, this was fixed

omg this is a totally cool feature... now the spaces are goal oriented. now i want to make a space for every single goal i have. hm. that's the ticket i think, at least for me...

whoops

cursor still blinking before the "* " in Safari.

Go ahead and just remove the "* " = that's fine with me :D

Also maybe we should make the GOALS note less tall, to be a bit less intimidating...

bug

I think when I use the browser arrow keys to go Back, it looks like it didn't save my last session... then I hit refresh and everything is back. so i think it's something to do with the browser-level-back-button and saving...

ATTN @sri - EverNote Permissions

The images you've embedded from EverNote 403 for me (and everyone else), because I don't have permission to see them.

I wish their servers would 403 faster, because it blocks the page from fully loading.

For example, /spex takes a while to load due to this issue.

UPDATE: The situation was probably exacerbated by a bad internet connection.

Invention and iconoclasm.

It seems clear to me that any real invention has to be made by folks who are motivated enough to become able to challenge the status quo. One must hold on to an iconoclastic vision in order to keep it going and that means the selling of that vision is going to have to pre-occupy me from now on as we need a billion users to discover this system...

metatron has entered /spex
  • Notifications when users enter and leave a space. You'll see them in the bottom left corner.
Save as PDF
  • A print stylesheet has been added, so you can Ctrl-P and then choose to save a space as a PDF.
  • If nothing else, this should facilitate easier copying and pasting of note content to Word.
  • I recommend saving the PDFs in Landscape mode (as opposed to the default Portrait mode). It'll let you fit more notes on the page horizontally.

Your GOAL is your SOUL...

Now I'm feeling like I have not expressed my goal properly in SO LONG.

It's very important to express your goal or your goal does not really exist. Your goals will reverberate all around your head and make strange things happen. Letting your goals have a voice is how to approach the world as their own energy entity.

Your goal is your power and as long as you aren't talking about them...

You're getting closer every day...

The more you type the more you know you've thought out where you stand about whatever you're after and the more you update your space the closer you get to your goals.

that'd be amazing if just pasting a URL of an image makes that image show up in the note, wow.

Implications of @wareness

Now that I can identify at-notation (@sri) when it occurs in note bodies, I can begin to take extra actions when I notice them.

The first use of this will be to notify other users that they've been mentioned in a space.

This will be a way of summoning them.

Truth #301

I envision this - this is the spec. you've got this document - the "truth" as it were - and you invite commentary on each and every single point in it. every bullet point has "add comment" and "read comments" hyperlinks. Ideally, the "read comments" hyperlinks also indicate how many comments have been added to that particular truth.

If notes could have comments attached to them, MetaNotes could fulfill this spec, too.

If you see this, make an account and let me know what it is, so I can give you access to some private spaces.

I'll also get you a shell account on the main server for metanotes.com.
