Finally trying out Obsidian. Initial experience is a blank screen without bullets. Is the outliner view not the #1 feature? Do people use Obsidian for free-form text? I can copy a set of nested bullets from Obsidian to LogSeq, but the other direction loses all nested structure. Do others find paste working fine?

"Macros work best in Common Lisp because image-based dev is a Galápagos island, enabling Turing-complete macros without a build system. Languages outside this niche should simply do away with macros. The complexity-benefit tradeoff is not worth it." https://borretti.me/article/why-lisp-syntax-works

Words made Flesh "This booklet writes a small cultural history of imaginative computation, reconstructing the obsessive persistence and contradictory mutations of the phantasm that symbols turn physical." https://monoskop.org/images/e/ee/Cramer_Florian_Words_Made_Flesh_Code_Culture_Imagination.pdf

Deals with the devil would work so much better if: * There were multiple competing devils; * You could publish reviews of your experience; and * They depended on repeat business from you. The trouble with the One Ring is really just the first word. Smeagol was a captive audience.

https://world.hey.com/dhh/even-amazon-can-t-make-sense-of-serverless-or-microservices-59625580 feels broadly correct, but has some epicycles. SOA vs microservices is a spectrum, not black and white. Here's a cleaner way I think about things.
