2023 Week 43 - Weekly Notes
We are back in our regular rotation. LYT Workshop 12 wrapped last week, as I mentioned in the previous week, so expect this to be more regular.
- I’m finally getting back to doing a quarterly review, a month later than I would’ve hoped.
- NaNoWriMo is starting this Wednesday, and I’m planning to participate. I put my Project Page up for everyone to see.
- At work, we’ve been chugging along working on next product requirements that’s hush hush here
- As some people are aware with my father, we’ve followed up with PT this past week where he can start walking supervised without his cane, which is a win all around.
- This new genome map tries to capture all human genetic variation
It’s called a pangenome, and it could explain the DNA that makes each of us unique.
I’m super curious about the intersection of science and data visualization, so this might be something of a research area in my near term.
- I’m super curious when it comes to wedding tea ceremonies, as my wedding is coming up next year. I’ll probably be going to SF Chinatown, after looking at Photos: Inside a traditional dress shop in S.F. Chinatown.
- I’ve been returning to this idea about systems, and when I encounter new ones (tagged: experimental), I try to incorporate them in my own workflows and see if they mesh. Most do (I’m looking at you, GTD)
- An oldie, but goodie given I was doing a bit of research on what if I won that recent $1.76 Billion lottery
- As someone who lived in a house that had many elements of Disney themes, this article delights me in how Disney fans make Disney-inspired home decor feel like magic
- In lieu of the point above about systems, a tangent is the idea of mental models. Here are 10 mental models that make the modern world
- Netflix DVD is now over. However, I still love my physical media, even with storage constraints. Changelog recently did an episode on physical media and lamenting the golden age of films
- ‘Love Locks’ Left at Grand Canyon Draws Ire of Park Service
- I’ll log this in what “I didn’t know I needed to know”
