Comment: How the intentions should work
Transcript: Oh the other thing beyond just sending a note to everyone tomorrow is wanting to well look at my message as a reason like to help me come up with a message to send to people. It's like I really appreciate the time that we spent and I would love to be precise about each person and what they contributed to my happiness. And quite frankly like I don't know if I need that to be public but I do definitely have those things and I would love to you know speak them into a computer with someone and you know have that reflected. That'd be really really nice.
Tomorrow, I plan to send a thank you note to everyone, including Jono. I'll inquire about giving him items for his garden and figure out how to arrange that. I'm also contemplating what the arrangement might entail. That's my current thought process.
The user is curious about summarizing their thoughts in the last 24 hours to have a solid understanding of their previous musings when they return to the computer. They also want to create a social mechanism to share their thoughts and interests with others in a way that is algorithmically related to their own interests, without coming across as trying to show off. They express a preference for audio recordings over writing and anticipate the process of reviewing their nightly thoughts as potentially painful. Overall, they aim to implement a solution to streamline this task.
The author wishes to make an offering to others but is uncertain of what it should be. They believe that clarity will come only after they present their offering and observe the reception it gets. The author intends to express themselves as effectively as possible. That's really all they feel they can do.
The sender wants to share something with multiple people without direct messaging, valuing both seen messages and replies equally. They enjoy the content they're seeing and feel it provides a different vibe than what's typically found on social media. The experience gives them a sense of something happening, which could be what Reels are intended for, yet the sender is seeking a different energy.
The speaker mentions using AI to convert voice notes into tweets or Instagram captions, expressing an interest in conveying their thoughts effectively and using it as a springboard for more thoughtful content. They highlight the potential for a "spiffy remark" on Twitter without needing to use their exact words, indicating a desire for increased flexibility and creativity in their social media posts. The overall focus is on exploring new ways to express their ideas and promote long-form, thoughtful content.
A shared 'brain' is being discussed as a platform for asynchronous voice note conversations where metadata could enhance understanding and visualization of conversational threads. The speaker suggests a focus on DEMO rather than DEC as a fork in the road, believing it better suits the work they've been doing with building prototypes. A group experiment is proposed with four members to delve into how these voice notes can overlap and interconnect, with the idea of marking chapters within responses to clarify dialogue. The concept also touches on the nuances of information retrieval, preferring vector databases over direct text searches, hinting at a similarity to the speaker's initial voice note exchanges with Savannah after meeting on a dating app. Voice communication offers significant advantages as a medium, and there's an idea presented here that its power should extend beyond just live conversations. Current messaging apps are filled with voice notes that are often difficult to search, filter, or respond to, though iMessage now has transcripts, which are generally reliable and useful once you've listened to the original voice note. The ability to refer back to transcribed voice notes can aid in crafting thoughtful responses and engaging in more meaningful discussions. The sender of the message suggests that by embracing this approach to communication, we could enhance our conversations and is curious to see how it will develop.
After a hike, I encountered Steph, leading to ongoing communication about hosting events. We discussed her co-organized salon on the AI alignment problem in March and my interest in hosting a website-building event during startup week, potentially in April or May. We also contemplated a tool for managing our projects and events, like a specialized project management software. Further, we talked about the connection between online communities and the physical gatherings they can inspire, emphasizing the cyclical relationship between the two.
The author is reflecting on the challenges of effectively showcasing their work on the internet, particularly in relation to portfolios and resumes. They express frustration with the limitations of resumes in capturing the depth of their experience and contributions. Additionally, they discuss the ongoing financial and practical challenges of maintaining online projects and the importance of preserving past work for the benefit of future creators. The author considers using archive.org as a potential solution but expresses reservations about outsourcing this responsibility to a non-profit organization. They ultimately prioritize the use of such resources for preserving knowledge that benefits the broader community rather than their own personal or professional work. The speaker is exploring the idea of preserving their work and experiences in a meaningful and sustainable way. They express concerns about relying on external platforms like archive.org and consider alternatives such as hosting their own content and encoding it into a lower fidelity medium. They also discuss the concept of creating their own encapsulation and representation of their work, which they hope will be more long-term sustainable. The text discusses the idea of creating a collaborative storytelling and writing platform that acts as a memory time capsule by archiving and snapshotting links. It addresses the challenge of link rot and suggests that decentralized hosting and a network of machines could potentially help in the future. The text discusses the concept of a scoped IPFS that functions similar to RAID, where each file is known only once but stored multiple times based on its significance. It also touches on the importance of data permanence on the internet, addressing concerns about archiving family photos and trusting companies like iCloud to maintain data indefinitely. The author questions if they should trust these companies and expresses uncertainty about the longevity of their data stored on such platforms.
The speaker is reflecting on their experience with making audio burrito posts, noting that it often requires multiple attempts to get into the correct mindset—similar to drafting written posts. They're grappling with the challenge of monologuing without a clear understanding of the audience, as they are aware that at least John and CJ will hear it, but uncertainty about the wider audience affects their ability to communicate effectively. This creates a 'contextual membrane shakiness' as the speaker finds the lack of audience boundaries difficult to navigate, which they recognize may vary among different people. The speaker concludes by deciding to end the current note and start a new one.
The author contemplates the process of converting an audio note into a transcript, then summarizing it on their "burrito" page. They express a desire to adjust the summarization voice to better represent themselves on the page. Recognizing that this feature may not have widespread appeal, the author nonetheless sees value in providing users with controls to personalize their "burrito." The concept of allowing users to fine-tune their experience is seen as an intriguing possibility.
