Redesigning my site in the open
I haven’t updated my personal website since late 2019 – probably the longest period ever between two redesigns – and it has held up well for over 4 years, but it’s now time for a refresh. I have several motivations for this latest effort.
Zooming In & Zooming Out
I was pondering the idea of Networked Thoughts and Human Thinking, and a big inquiry I had was how people can create and destroy the concept of "contexts", a sub-graph of the global knowledge graph. This made me realize that people can "zoom" in and out of ideas; given a context, a person can be asked for more detail or less detail, and they can provide that. For example, consider the context in my mind of the VueJs framework. I could be asked to give a one-sentence description, a paragraph description, or write a few pages. This led me to understand that I could create a composition of all the nodes and structure within that context, and I could modify the length of the composition to suit the situation.
