Read Cunningham's Law (meta.m.wikimedia.org)
Cunningham's Law states "the best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question; it's to post the wrong answer."

This feels very true to my experiences. Perhaps I ought to use it more, but there’s a sort of cruelty if you’re doing it on purpose. Definitely a pattern used by pundits (unwittingly?) in an attempt to be controversial and therefore as clickbait.

Read Can someone add some more HTML tags, please? by Dries BuytaertDries Buytaert (dri.es)
Every day, millions of new web pages are added to the internet. Most of them are unstructured, uncategorized, and nearly impossible for software to understand. It irks me. Look no further than Sir Tim Berners-Lee's Wikipedia page: The markup for Tim Berners-Lee's Wikipedia page; it's complex and inc...

We definitely need more rich mark up that’s parseable and usable. I’m not sure that additional HTML tags would necessarily be taken up heavily to be of much use.

I do like having some solid microformats on my own content and it works out well with many of the parsing tools that I use regularly for consuming content. I’m curious what Dries has tried out in terms of options he’s dogfooded into Drupal? I do notice that when my website parses his article, it does pull in more data than most sites I come across. The one thing my parser didn’t find was his avatar in the “correct” place. It popped up as a page photo rather than an avatar for him as an author.

Putting microformats into Wikipedia seems like an interesting idea. Anyone want to manually add microformats to tbl’s Wikipedia page? 🙂

Read When Would the Georgia Winners Be Certified? (WSJ)
The winners of today's contests in Georgia may take a while to be certified and get to Washington, meaning the Senate could be stuck at 51 Republicans -- including Sen. Kelly Loeffler but not David Perdue, whose term expired -- to 48 Democrats for several weeks after the results become clear. Accor

Sadly it looks like the two potential new Democratic senators from Georgia may not be seated until after it’s too late to convict Donald John Trump on a second impeachment.

Read Example Workflows in Obsidian (Obsidian Forum)
One of the strengths of Obsidian is that it can be thought of as a toolkit for building machines for thinking. But this strength can be a challenge when you are first getting started. Without an inherent structure, it can be difficult to know where to begin. My advice to anyone just getting started is always going to be this: Just start making notes, make links and tags liberally, and see what structure emerges to suit the way you think (feel free to disagree with me, but please do so over at K...

I downloaded the sample file and played around with it a bit. Forte’s P.A.R.A. system seems interesting for the getting things done (GTD) crowd. The IMF system seems generally useful as a way for categorizing and tracking things. So too, the idea of “Maps of Content (MOC)”, but in reality, it’s just a clever name for something I’ve been doing for ages with OneNote.

Read Inside the chaos of brand safety technology (branded.substack.com)
Integral Ad Science, Comscore and Oracle are leaking the top secret classifications they use to block ad revenues from the news.
The idea that brand safety is killing quality journalism is the shocking take away for me here. Companies are generally throwing away a lot of their advertising money into a dark pit, but to be doing it while actively killing journalism (and by proxy: democracy) is appalling.
Read Looking for best practices for using web clipped articles (Obsidian Forum)
Greets, fellow Obs-heads! I store web clippings of articles into an “Articles” directory in Obsidian for reference, editing, and/or notating. I use these articles for business ideas, referencing, and such. But I’m not sure I am doing this in a manner of utilizing my knowledge system in the best way possible. I’m curious as to how some of you file and reference articles in your own systems? Do you keep the articles in an article folder, move them to a relevant folder, or do you not use folder...
