About the Site
This website is an open journal and personal knowledge management system (PKMS). I think and write about productivity quite a lot in the context of achieving creative independence and the systems tailored to meet my ADHD, ASD, and GAD traits. For more personal history, check out my biography page.
As of February 2023, the site is organized around three main menu sections:
The first item is the journal for daily communications about my daily activities and thoughts. This section also includes the GHDR (Groundhog Day Resolutions) reports and related materials.
This section collects the "active work" since starting this website in 2022. For work predating 2022, visit davidseah.com.
I have ADHD and ASD (Autism) traits that I have to overcome on minute-by-minute basis. I have found that combining experimental and exploration techniques improves my motivation a lot; I call it my ELBS process.
Exploration-focused experiments, prototypes, and collected materials (equivalent to "projects")
Treasures, curiosities, and interesting lore collected through an Expedition. (jumble of "working notes", "prototypes", and "deliverables")
Utilities, recipes, etc that help with Expeditions both future and past.
The really good standalone works that I think can provide immediate utility, packaged for ease of use.
3. CONCEPTUAL KNOWLEDGE
This is a currated reference library of methodologies, patterns, taxonomies, and conceptual models that help me understand and manipulate the world. This is my wheel house! If you are interested in how things work or connect together, you might find an interesting idea or two in this section.
3. PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS and NOTATIONS
I use a stream-of-consciousness writing style to capture what thinking as I'm working stuff out in my head. Some of this thinking can be filed as applied knowledge or conceptual knowledge, but quite a lot of it is subjective to the point it only makes sense to me or someone who knows me (or wants to know me) very well. I file those tidbits away here.
Data Collection Policy
This website does not collect or process personal data. However,
WEBSITE TECH STACK
rsync to push all the static files to my web host.
I'm using Opalstack (affiliate link), a really great developer-oriented host at a good price. It's the improved spiritual successor to WebFaction!
I'm now using Google Fonts, having selected Merriweather as my replacement serif and Roboto for the sans-serif (replacing Proxima Nova Condensed). I like this combination, and Google Fonts is better engineered than Adobe TypeKit.
