I don’t know where to begin with the idea that the US government should form a national commission to study information integrity in light of an attempted insurrection over disinformation about election results spread by the former president of the US government while in office.
Even now, are they in a position to decide what is or is not disinformation, or to decide who decides?

uspol, facebook oversight
Facebook referred the decision of whether to reinstate Trump's FB page to their self-created Oversight Board to evaluate and decide on.
Another group made up of some of Facebook's greatest critics and calling themselves The Real Facebook Oversight Board is using this as a chance to evaluate if Facebook's self-appointed board is up to the task of providing legitimate oversight.
Trying out a tiling window manager for the first time (https://ianyh.com/amethyst/). Going to take a little to get used to but this might be nice.
I started doing math exercises with Khan Academy to compare it to Brilliant. The khan academy exercises are more straight to the point: just do the damn math.
Brilliant turns every exercise into a meta-learning word problem. It might be “better” for learning concepts but it felt like it was going way too slowly (fun and edutaining, but slow).
I just want to plow through some early maths problem sets right now to get my brain spooled back up and find out what I don’t remember anymore.
I’m trying to figure out how I want to manage a public-facing personal wiki/digital garden website for learning in public, while also maintaining my own personal-facing notes much of which covers the same content.
Does anyone else have a similar setup? How do you do it?
I’m still figuring out my workflow and how I want organize everything.
Do I write distinct notes for public/private consumption that have conceptually duplicate content? Just straight up publish some of my private notes as the website? Simply utilize the public-facing website notes as my “real” notes for those particular topics?
