- This Python book looks especially good and relevant for making web-facing things
- It could help with making a SQLite-based site for searching through records of some type, such as searching a shallow index of all sites registered as Brave Creators.
- Note: It focuses on deploying Python apps with Bottle and nginx, which is different from what I've seen and used (not seen Bottle, and I've only really used Apache (not nginx)).
- This article seems to provide a good description of using APIs (via PHP)
- Maybe have a central OpenQuestions post that presents all open questions, broken out by tag. But either sort or filter the tag according to a custom list on the post, enabling me to present to myself the items that are likely relevant to whatever else I'd been thinking about/planning to do. (This is a big, important point for productivity — when there are things that you should do or be doing, present to yourself ONLY information relevant to that domain to increase effectiveness and efficiency.)
- Orgmoded: How would I go about making new nodes that are compatible with the ones produced via Orgmode importers, such as orgparse?
- How do decorators in Python work? How do you make one? They seem magical. I was first exposed to them via the Interactive Widgets aspect of Jupyter Notebooks.
- Figure out how to pull in my posts from Pleroma/Mastodon, saved articles from Wallabag, and do TextMining on them.
- Eventually do the same with posts from RSS feeds I'm subscribed to. Surface stuff that's more relevant, not just time-local.
- Keep track of OpenQuestions, relate them to tagged entries
- One question: What's the recommended path for installing packages in Python? I think that I heard somewhere that they always caution people to not install that with
sudo pip install ..., that the
sudo aspect can wreck a person's entire system.
- Use the ToDo system from TW
- I'm surprised that this article about Exploring and Analyzing Network Data with Python includes more of an introduction to network analysis than the article on network analysis with Neo4j.
- Relation of graphs/networks and text mining
- If/how to attribute value to nodes/edges (relationships) within a graph/network, especially economic value
- Write up life stories, publish some here. Especially those related to College (ScopeOfUndergrad is a good step in this direction). Think like https://www.folklore.org/
- Look into books RE DataVisualization, especially for an easy comparison chart/table of the different types of visualizations and when they're used.
I keep mixing up bar charts with histograms! Histograms are for showing distributions of numbers (albeit nums sorted into bins) in a series (which might pertain to a category); bar charts are for categories and their comparison. Box and Whisker plots or violin plots can provide even more insight into the underlying bins of a Histogram.
- For self-study of math, easily figure out what symbols mean with these tools: http://shapecatcher.com or http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html (https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14/how-to-look-up-a-symbol-or-identify-a-math-symbol-or-character)
- Transition away from using
@csus.edu for professional, personal development stuff; move email contents to new email?
- Figure out new email
- Carry conversations over to new email
- Let others know of expiration date
- Figure out how to remove unused CSS from Bootstrap, to save on PageWeight
- Refactor OrgNotes to wiki
- Set aside time to really refactor this wiki
- Setup a TODO system on here, copy and paste from example TODO wiki
- Now page for blog
- Figure out how to handle images when uploading to public
- Add Disqus comments —, hidden & unloaded by default to keep PageWeight light — to help a community to form
- Do side projects incrementally, provide updates on them
- Do video chats/recordings of thoughts (maybe edit them with Shotcut), to help combat demotivation from sense of isolation
- Do chats with friends, more!
- Do things that include a hope of long-term persistence, allowing for people to join you and contribute (not just follow)
- WikiMaintenance: Delete stupid pages, or limit how readily/prominently they're linked to (especially 2deep4me)
- Compile a list of WorkRemotely tips, resources; indoor plants that filter the air, eInk tablets for use outside [WorkRemotely need not be done inside], local community mingling (via Meetups and PeerJoy)
