Welcome to my notes

Last updated yesterday

These are my personal notes but I choose to publish them, so no idea gets trapped inside my head.

These are my ideas. They are not proven things, and there's absolutely nothing backing them up than what is inside my head. I'm always open for discussion so if you have questions or you know something I'm saying isn't true, please leave a comment and I'll look into it.

When I'm writing these, I'm thinking and writing down my thoughts as they are. Sometimes they are messy, sometimes they are short, and they are mostly self-contained but yet require context. You can think of these nodes as a mindmap. I plan to make a web interface that takes all my notes and creates a browseable mindmap interface of everything I have written about. This way I can find my previous notes faster, and I have a dynamically growing organization structure that allows finding by keyword and by relations.

I often think about whether I'm worried that someone will read something I wrote and decide to steal my idea. The way I see it is that I can't do much about this problem because it's a choice between talking with the whole world and talking to a few friends. I choose to take the risk that somebody is ok with themselves and everyone else knowing that they stole their idea. And furthermore, most of us are not dumb and gullible, and we all respect honesty and integrity. Very few of us want to support copycats and parasites so the way I see it is that as long as I put everything in the open, only the dumbest will steal.

Few notes about these notes. There will be bad puns. There will be opinions that may or may not be the same as yours. You are welcome to disagree or agree with me. No matter which, I'm interested in what you have to say as long as you are interested in what I have to say. I don't appreciate thoughtless knee-jerk reactions or being preached at.

If you want to have a chat, you can find me at https://twitter.com/markopolojarvi. For private messages, you can reach me at marko at markopolojarvi dot com.

So whoever you are, where-ever you are from, and no matter what god you do or don't bow, welcome.
