  • 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.

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

SWEET

The crisis of popularity can be addressed by making the total-basics so freaking easy and fun to do that each little maneuver is addictive...

Totally

Rather than exploring xanalogy maybe we should simply marvel at tangents being relevant to that old dream, then move right on into "how would lady gaga's fanbase want to use this?" etc.

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.

goalS

it's amazing !!! let's make it

GOALS

plural

maybe have the text "* " pre-entered in there to give folks the idea about lists subliminally...

i think we have suddenly achieved a goal of "why are you doing this?" because the answer is now obvious...

"Why?"

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.

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...

yummy !!

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...

sri 20 days ago

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.

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.

Next on my metanotes agenda is working on parsing the text of notes to interpret #hashtags, @atmessages, youtube links, etc.

UPDATE: Of course, I'd like to get images to autoembed, too.

autolinking of urls

A small improvement:

URLs now turn into clickable links.

so image links will just render

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

for existing notes with links

edit and resave and the links should be converted.
