      Glad to notice that: - I've heard of / know many of these tools, so have an ok overview of the current space. No surprises in the list. - I have not cycled through all these tools.

      Also interesting that The Brain still exists. Used to be my desktop interface in the late 90s/early 00s.

    1. Noosphere was presented at the Render conf on tools for thought. There's overlap with Boris' work on IPFS, judging by his tweets he's involved in this effort too.

      This Noosphere Explainer explains the tech used, not the 'massive-multiplayer knowledge graph' it is posited to be, how that would come about with this tech, or what that is meant to be for.

    1. ust an aside about "tools for thought," a burgeoning attention-sump in some circles. I seldom notice mention of the following: A walk. A shower. A good night's sleep. Introspection and reflection. I don't know that we understand "thought" well enough to design tools to improve it. But we do love our cleverness and the artifacts thereof. We can see those, and, more importantly, show them to others! We can talk about them, criticize them, modify them, endlessly.

      Dave Rogers makes the points that 1) focusing on tools is often a distraction. 2) behaviour such as walk,shower, rest are also 'tools' to aid thinking.
