Back To Origins With Org-Mode And My Wiki

Happy Thanksgiving from here in NYC all. It’s going to be a chilly day, with temperatures rising about 50 while the sun is out. I wanted to write another update on my recent work while the coffee is still hot.

Of TiddlyWiki, Emacs, and Digital Gardens

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been brainstorming the idea of converting this website into a fork of a wiki, particularly, TiddlyWiki. I went full circle from using the tool to builing a static website, back to the original, single-file java script supported version. Here are some of my thoughts.

One such game is Elite Dangerous, which I picked up again recently.
