Open notebooks part III

electricarchaeology.ca

Do my bidding my robots! I’ve sussed the Scrivener syncing issue by moving the process of converting out of the syncing folder (remember, not the actual project folder, but the ‘sync to external folder’). I then have created four automator applications to push my stuff to github in lovely markdown. Another thing I’ve learned today: when writing in Scrivener, just keep your formatting simple. Don’t use markdown syntax within Scrivener or your stuff on github […]

What’s in a placename?

blogs.library.duke

New York. Paris. London. Saying these names likely evokes a sense of place in many people. Maybe what’s evoked is the knowledge of a place on a map, a sense of the culture there, or the memory of a trip. But what do these toponyms we can so casually reference actually mean? Do I mean “London” or “London”? “New York” or “New York”? If I were in my home state of Kentucky, I might well […]

An Open Research Notebook Workflow with Scrivener and Github Part 2: Now With Dillinger.io!

electricarchaeology.ca

A couple of updates: First item The four scripts that sparkygetsthegirl crafted allow him to 1. write in Scrivener, 2. sync to a Dropbox folder, 3. Convert to md, 4. then open those md files on an android table to write/edit/add 5. and then reconvert to rtf for syncing back into Scrivener. I wondered to myself, what about some of the online markdown editors? Dillinger.io can scan Dropbox for md files. So, I went to […]

Just as the industrial revolution was born out of coal and steel, the digital revolution is born out of mines bursting with an inexhaustible supply of binary numbers, which when put together generate big data, the vital […]
