Via a link to Jared Pereira’s personal website tours posted on the IndieWeb chat, I stumbled on a bit of a goldmine of thoughts on the blog and wiki combo over at Tom Critchlow’s blog.
Lots of interesting new terms:
- blogchain: a string of short, ad-hoc posts in a blog that together build on a theme.
- digital campfires: somewhere in between the stream and the garden? A place for conversations.
- stock and flow: another metaphor for the wiki and the blog, the garden and the stream.
- collecting the dots: a nice phrase for the ideas in building a second brain, zettelkasten, etc.
- blogging without a publish button: seems like a way of building up articles over time, in draft, in public on the stream and the wiki.
Also learned about are.na, which says it provides ‘tools for thinking, together‘. Which I like the sound of, but as are.na is a silo, it’s not something I will be using personally.
