GHDR Boot Day 3/12: Creating a Documentation Site

Posted Monday, February 5, 2024 by Sri. Tagged GHDR

Monday, February 5, 2024.

Since I need a place to keep all the documentation for The Colony available, I added a new section to the site! You can see it at dsriseah.com/the-colony/about, though it's not much to look at at the moment:

New Website Subsection

This involved adding a lot of new boilerplate to the website architecture over several hours. I used the opportunity to clean up some old naming to make it clearer what files were related to what. Anyway, I'm now in a good place to start writing documentation within my personal knowledge management system (this site).

For tomorrow? Writing, I guess!


INDEX of GHDR 2024 POSTS

This year's single goal is Building The Colony!

Made a simple "functional area" diagram using Whimsical to help gather my thoughts.

I converted the Whimsical doc from yesterday to Affinity Designer.

Created new subsite at /the-colony/

Wrote stream-of-consciousness "vision statement" for later cleanup

Convert stream-of-consciousness into a "phrase cloud" for further deconstruction

Artifacts of The Colony: Pebbles, Seeds, and Rings

Created a "refined phrase cloud" grouped into five categories, based on boot 05's work.

Extracted "foundational" statements from yesterday, but they didn't leave a strong impression. Punt "why" to tomorrow's post.

Created a "Selfishly Sri" printable assessment to gauge outside interest.

Reducing scope from Colony to Outpost.

Desired results are distilled down to two main ideas, which will cover the next couple of months.

A slow start to the year, as I focused on paying work for most of the month. Set four directives to achieve this mont

The set of analysis notes that I authored with ChatGPT4 to refine my understanding of "prosocial motivation"

New goal is to start connecting with future chatty collaborators, as my brain runs on "prosocial motivation" and meaningful human connections.

Delving further into my "predominantly-prosocially motivated" profile (PPMP), and how to turn this into action given the dilemma of "needing the energy from a group to start a task" being at odds with "needing to start a group so I have energy".

The task of "talking to someone in-person about PPMP-based community" didn't happen. Happily, I had several empowering insights along the lines of wealth, doing what is good, and accepting myself that I think will help with that.
