I don’t get “publishing” threads on Twitter. Get a blog and own your content.

I think the COVID-19 response exposes a problem with the current state of lack of trust created through an increase in extreme points of view, both left and right. Consequently, people now seem to only trust what they can see with their own eyes or what make sense to them. Therefore, people are less likely to take COVID-19 seriously until they are personally affected in some way.

For such people, a young person’s account of surviving COVID-19 published by the New York Times is not believed because they don’t trust the New York Times. Likewise anything published by the NewYorker. A blogger’s first hand account is meaningless because I don’t know the blogger.

In short, the problem cannot be placed on external entities that are not trusted. The problem isn’t with journalism not doing something so much as journalism having no credibility from an extremist point of view unless that journalist is identified as having the same extremist point of view.

“One day, the mainline Christian movement will itself recognize that Jesus was never into expelling or excluding—only transforming and integrating. In fact, you might say that, for Jesus, the very act of expulsion is the problem.”

Daring Fireball: Howard Stern on Trump

Howard Stern echos something I’ve said for a while, but I think what may be the case is that these people don’t necessarily love Trump himself so much as what he represents to them, which they personally identify with. They see themselves in Trump’s persona and thus any negative statement about him is translated as a personal attack in them. To these people we are deep within a class war between “elites” and what they believe are “normal people,” which they define as anyone who agrees with and acts like them, and which they call “common sense.” The war began when Newt Gingrich ascended to Speaker of the House.

I am one of many people who really like the note-taking app called Roam that is currently in beta. However, it seems some think that bidirectional note linking is the primary feature of Roam, and while I think bidirectional note linking is a differentiator it is not the only reason why I prefer Roam. For me the main reason why I like Roam is that it is an outliner for developing and maintaining a wiki that automatically supports bidirectional links.

I’ve tried amplenote.com that claims to be an alternate to Roam that supports bidirectional links, and I does in fact do a very good job of importing content from Roam. However, Amplenote is not an outliner and I quickly found that true outlining, not just bullet lists, is a must have requirement for me.
