Angle of Attack

I’ve got some thoughts about codifying your approach to things; intentionally turning your attitude about situations around by focusing on changing your approach to the situation.

But it’s 11:30 and I’m going to completely bitch out and hit post on that teaser.

The aside that became the body:

Oh, I was thinking about something that I suspect might actually be possible:  Microsoft OneNote has a REST api.  It’s not outside the realm of possibility that I could round trip a OneNote notebook as a PKMS with at least nominal wiki functionality.

I know you can create links between pages at least within a notebook.  So it stands to reason that you’d be able to generate them easily enough, even if it was a matter of creating a link in the OneNote software, downloading the page and cracking the content open to see how it’s formatted.  Can’t be TOO tough to then regenerate page links, build the pages and feed them back up to the server, which would be reflected on the phone pretty damned quickly.

If I combined that with the Todoist api stuff then I’d never have to go NEAR mobile programming.  NOT that phone app programming is so inherently scary.  But I just have a wicked blind spot when it comes to designing user experiences, particularly for constrained form factors.

But I’m fucking beat and I have to get up in the morning and bake cookies, having just put lemon bars in the fridge.

Friday night I’m going to sleep 37 hours.
