There could be two more top-level links:

  • /status or /currently or /now or /state or /plan or /summary
  • /history or /past

I'm not sure about this /now page, because that's really just the most recent journal entry (otherwise I have to constantly update this). However, I do think there's a way to have a /now where I explain what prototype I'm working on, what research I did in the past, etc...

9/14/17... Doing a CycleJS deep dive in order to think through a StreamSheets prototype
9/11/17 Research Recap 5
9/8/17 Bret Victor Deep Dive
9/1/17 - 9/7/17 Alan Kay Deep Dive
etc etc, with links...

I think there are different levels of abstraction here:

  1. My meta-plan of attack. How I plan to spend my time. Who I talk do, what I read, etc.

  2. My thesis about this space

  3. The idea or ideas I'm currently working on

In some ways, I feel like all three of these things belong in the same document that I continuously edit.

However when I think about it, there's a clear distinction between 1 and 2+3. I think 1 can live at /about to explain the purpose of the project and my overall strategy.

But I do think I need a place where I can explain my current thesis and also my current projects. Here's what I'm thinking...

/thesis or /now can explain, mostly by linking to them, which projects I'm currently working on and why. (Alternatively, this could be the same as index.md in the /ideas/ folder. Or we could do this in a new folder called /projects/ which might be a better label.)

I am torn between whether /thesis and /now are the same or different pages. I guess it depends on how I define the thesis page, how abstract I am with my values and goals. The next step here is probably to write more about all of these things (doesn't matter much where) and then see which ways of breaking them up make sense.
