Hello there, you have found what I call my Exocortex. Building on the work of the awesome people at org-roam and wowchemy, I am able to publish my notes in a structured manner such that they might become useful to humans who are working on similar issues.
It is (and will remain indefinitely) work in progress. Some notes might lack any sophistication. Most of them are incomplete. If that bothers you or you want to start a conversation on some of the topics covered here, please send me a note at email@example.com
These are mostly written by me. I intent them to be self-explanatory and detailed. They also include indeces, i.e. collections of references and concepts that are relevant to a given topic.
By ‘augmenting human intellect’ we mean increasing the capability of a man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his particular needs, and to derive solutions to problems.
Where the notion of something being ‘normal’ comes from and what types of ‘normalisation’ Foucault conceptualised
These types of notes tend to much shorter. They either contain a summary/outline of a reference I find interesting or a collection of quotes from it. Sometimes they might simply include a link to another reference or concept.
