Monero.

Monero is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency released in 2014. It uses an obfuscated public ledger, meaning anyone can send or broadcast transactions, but no outside observer can tell the source, amount, or destination. (Wikipedia)

Face recognition, Icon Fonts And Happiness

  • Face recognition, security and privacy issues (Capitol Riot).
  • Ho to use icons (“icon fonts”) in WordPress.
  • You can be motivated to do something intrinsically (it gives you satisfaction and enjoyment) or extrinsically (you are given a reward, such as money or recognition). Most people know that intrinsic rewards are the sweeter of the two. But there’s a twist: Psychologists have found that extrinsic rewards can actually extinguish intrinsic rewards, leading us to enjoy our activities less. To increase our happiness, we need better questions: 1. WHO HAS INTRINSIC CHARACTERISTICS THAT I ADMIRE AND WANT TO EMULATE? 2. WHAT DO PEOPLE MOST NEED FROM ME, AND HOW CAN I PROVIDE IT? 3. WHAT IS MY LIFE’S PURPOSE? Instead of checking items off a list, the Buddha suggests shining a light on yourself and others. (from: Stop Keeping Score – Arthur C. Brooks in The Atlantic)

Note-Taking, Nature, Tools, PKM, Backups, Writing, Drums And Income Reports

  • Note taking: Andy Matuschak, his site.
  • What is the Indie Web? I found this info here: Ton Zijlstra. I found that blog because I googled “James Lovelock Novacene blinkist summary”, and one of the results was this blog post. The reason I googled that phrase is becasue today’s free Blinkist summary (in German) was “Novozän” by James Lovelock, and I wanted to see if there was also a Blinkist summary of that book in English.
  • A question I had today was inspired by an article I read in my local news site about wolves and some readers were suggesting we should get rid of them (as dangerous) while others were saying they are necessary to keep the ecosystem in balance. So I googled it and and a post I found (VitAntica.net) mentioned James Lovelock and his Gaia hypothesis. Coincidentally today’s Blinkist summary (in German) was of a Lovelock’s book.
  • A tool for collecting and organizing research: Zotero.
  • A knowledge base tool: Obsidian.
  • How to export your Google Photos library.
  • The tool I use to backup my files locally: Pioneer 3D NAND External SSD (480 GB).
  • Tool for geo-localizing Amazon affiliate links: Genius.
  • Live daily writing session by Ali Abdaal. Good for accountability and a way to create content by simply documenting your daily activities.
  • Today’s Blinkist summary (in English) was “The Practice” by Seth Godin.
  • A Goblet drum. Introduction to Hand Drums. Inspired by watching drummer’s Bilal Göregen‘s viral video. Buy yourself one.
