At what point does researching and reading up on how to better Get Things Done stop being useful and start to be a form of procrastination of its own? I’m not sure, but I do know that although I’ve made some inroads on my mess and plethora of inboxes, calendars, todo lists and notes, I’ve still got too many of them and I’m always a sucker to try out the next one I see.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
