blog.stephsmith.io (Steph Smith)

  • bio:
  • I'm fascinated by storing things that I learn outside of my own brain. Ideally I'd love to create my own mini intranet of information, basically a personal wiki, that I can go to first before having to Google things, especially for my field of study.

    I've looked into various Wiki packages but none quite seem to offer what I'm looking for (Mac, no need for a webserver, cross device functionality, math markup, searchability, tags)

    If you do keep a personal knowledge repository, can you please describe your workflow for using and maintaining one for all the new knowledge you acquire?

  • bio: Hi! I’m a software engineer, designer, and researcher. I work on technologies that expand what people can think and do. My methods meander between academia and Silicon Valley: I explore theories by expressing them in real-world systems, which produce insights I use to improve the theories, which I use in turn to improve the systems, and so on. But I’m sharing them publicly as an experiment (Work with the garage door up). If a note seems confusing or under-explained, it’s probably because I didn’t write it for you! Sorry—that’s sort of an essential tension of this experiment.
  • bio: This website — a 100-link directory — is an oasis for those who are tired of clickbait, SEO, fake news, excessive advertisements and a big brother who watches everything. Today, the Internet has become a tool used to divide, misinform and reinforce beliefs.
