EES, Covid Edition

  • Mattermost channel? Factr? Massive Wiki?
  • partly-refined information + context, not necessarily accurate
    • should be signal, not noise
    • doesn't have to be perfect or even necessarily correct, but you should think it's important, and important to share
    • anecdotes can be important! make sure to note that it's anecdotal, though, and give a little context about what you think about the source
  • personal responsibility for "notecards" added to the megastream
  • develop a process of refining steps that make the information better and more organized
  • transient
  • info-stream, dipping ladle in a river, twitter feed (i see what i see, i don't go back and try to see everything)


  • "constructed ignorance"

Massive Wiki Community Wikis

Need to make a map!

  • "marcom" site
  • user community
  • developer community
  • some kind of knowledgebase?

GDM (G*** Docs to Massive)

  • a sibling to Matrix-to-Massive
  • the idea is to pull Google Docs in a particular folder, transform them to Markdown, and then put them into a folder in a Massive Wiki



  • Nimbus Note (possible Evernote replacement)
  • Krista Tippett and On Being
  • "The Birth of the Modern World, 1780 - 1914", book by C. A. Bayly
