7. @aengusmcmillin 's @RoamResearch -like experiment with bidirectional links implemented in @gatsbyjs
Had an idea last night for a @gatsbyjs powered Public Brain. Managed to get a (very) basic version of it built for my site today! Inspired by @RoamResearch, already possible to (minus a few bugs) copy/paste from Roam and create a graph of notes on your site.

11. Speaking of hover previews, @JoshWComeau's experiment with Tippy.js this week is a fanstastic example of adding contextual layers to links -
😁🎉 Working on a new feature for my blog, I'm calling it "Link previews". Pops up a little screenshot, to give you a sense of what this link holds. • Captures all external links • Generates screenshots daily • Totally integrated into my Gatsby process, zero manual steps!

13. To come back to @tomcritchlow for a moment, as far as I can tell from internet-history-digging they OG coined the term "digital garden" 🌱 and have a wonderful series of reflections on the concept here: tomcritchlow.com/blogchains/…

15. Mark Bernstein's 1998 essay / explorative experience "Hypertext Gardens" - eastgate.com/garden/ "Unplanned hypertext sprawl is wilderness: complex and interesting, but uninviting. Interesting things await us in the thickets." ❤️ This design aesthetic

16. Overdue addition to the list, but @swyx has an entire 'Digital Garden Terms of Service' agreement! swyx.io/writing/digital-gard… A beautifully reflection on what we should expect as readers and gardeners - Epistemic disclosure, proper attribution, and the right to be wrong
