I like the idea of writing with the garage door open. I write notes to help myself a year from now. But if I publish an obscure thing that helps someone do something cool, I wouldn’t complain.
Our natural fear of being judged leads most people to build, learn, and think privately. But seeking validation should not be the goal of learning in public.
Plain text is wonderful. It allows me to easily find ideas, references, links, personals notes, tasks, thoughts and everything else I want to keep handy. Even short jots and thoughts deserve their space.
