The Data Log

From Data to Knowledge - a blog

Hi, there. 👋 For your own sake, I hope you are not lost.
Let me help you figure out if you are...

TL;DR available at the bottom of the post.

What are we?

I am ~data. An online identity that aims to make it easier for others to remember and find the work of the person behind me.

Where are we?

We are in my blog, silly! I am starting a blog. Oh, wait... kind of already did that. Anyway... this is my blog. If you choose to continue your journey with me, I'm sorry in advance. Hah!

Why are we here?

Our goals are simple: to learn and to teach. For the most part, we are guided by my own personal pedagogy. We also aim to channel our impulses to teach and spread knowledge away from my friends and family. I'm not sure how many more rants about insignificant things they can take. 😅 I love you guys!

Where are we going?

Listen here: I am the captain of this ship. I am not, however, in complete control of it. What I'm saying is...

💜🟪*There is going to be purple ahead!*🟣💜

What are we driving?

Markdown and plain text files are the foundation for my note-taking. After that, we will see where this journey takes us.

Up Next ⏭

  • Getting organized. Workflows don't grow on trees.
  • Creating a /now page.
  • Creating a /uses page.
  • Creating a Homepage.

Are we there yet?

No, nor will we ever be. The pursuit of knowledge is ongoing and never ending. But we have indeed arrived at the tl;dr section.

TL;DR ⌚

I'm ~data. I aim to learn and to teach. Using Markdown and plain text, I plan to turn my thoughts 💭 into a somewhat digestible string of texts that others can then read and maybe, juuuust maybe, get some use out of them.

*I don't have a plan for this blog.* I will be rolling with the punches and adapting as new things populate my mind. This is a journey of self discovery, self-indulgence, pedagogy and lots of rambling. Like, a lot of rambling.

It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment. -Carl Friedrich Gauss

Are you ready for this journey? Will you be my learning partner?

Thanks,
~data
