For my two active users (Ron and Andre), I have finished making updates to my MyStatusTool site to allow editing of previous posts - I will reach out to you to see when you would like to try this upgrade.

Was able to get the text of a previous post into the MyStatusTool editor window, but had tags appear in the post. Did some experimenting, then I could not decode the HTML entities - frustrating! (Did an edit on the imported text, removed tags, added link manually.

This morning, I noticed that Dave Winer's FeedLand Feed did not update for my MyStatusTool instance, but it did for all of the other test instances. If anyone sees any other issues, let me know.

IEEE Spectrum: How the Computer Graphics Industry Got Started at the University of Utah - Adobe and Pixar founders created tech that shaped modern animation - I used image generators from Evans and Sutherland earlier in my career, then they were purchased by Rockwell Collins (now Collins Aerospace) to be part of their simulation business. Exciting times back then!

Andy's MyStatusTool feed Building a Second Brain and the Zettelkasten Method - This post goes into great detail contrasting the "Building a Second Brain" ideas of Tiago Forte and the Zettelkasten Method as practiced by Niklas Luhmann. The author states that both methods can be used simultaneously with little to no overlap (BASB is project focused, ZKM is knowledge-focused. It's worth the time to read!

Greg Wilson: Eleven Tips for Organizational Change "This was a proposal for the US Research Software Engineer Association 2023 conference, but was rejected.... I recognize that they are incomplete—in particular, that they are strongly biased toward what works in affluent, democratic societies—but if you’re tired of rolling heavy rocks up steep hills over and over again, maybe they will help."

I saw Ken's Smith's recent post on group activities, and I agree that larger social media may not be the place for such groups to work together. I also think another recent post of Ken's (Choose to affiliate) also echoes this thought. To me, MyStatusTool could be the tool of communication for a small work group or organization, with the added plus of owning your content/work. Since it uses rssCloud as the notification service for new posts, real-time conversations can occur there.

Andy's MyStatusTool feed National Security Implications of Trump’s Indictment: A Damage Assessment

It is those national security implications, as evidenced in particular by the 31 counts lodged under the Espionage Act (18 U.S.C. § 793(e)), which we briefly lay out here.

Andy, looking forward to the reworking of MyStatusTool. I need to get back in the saddle as well. I'm going to add enclosure support and work out auto-deletion of old files when the corresponding message drops off.

Almost. He mentions that it should be to "start a record" and "go back through the chain of thought", also "long-lived special-purpose communication apps". MST is semi-ephemeral so doesn't entirely qualify.

I've been thinking to myself that I need to get back to this as well. I still haven't added enclosure support, must get round to that soon.

Receiving you loud and clear. But for some reason couldn't reply - a glitch preventing me using the reply arrow on the first item. Will investigate tomorrow.
