I first didn't even notice it was a live demo until my mouse was over it and I wanted to scroll down and instead the graph in the demo zoomed out.
- Just today on HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18410628
- I would not do a live demo but instead illustrate using pictures and perhaps a little intro video.
- It's not made clear enough what the core differentiators of the product are vs. existing process tools, such as Trello or Asana. In fact I currently don't see the benefits of a graph-based approach over other tools. Doesn't mean that there aren't any, just that they aren't made clear.
- In the live demo: the box being displayed when I hover over a tree node is almost always (partly) off screen.
But: it also took me a while to see that it is interactive.
There should be a big label "Live Demo" above it (the small text on the right is easy to miss)
(Unfortunately, for me, all the live demo does is show that the product is still pretty rough.)
> which lets you directly model your workflow and document your reasoning without the mental overhead of a folder structure.
but honestly i still don't understand what the main value prop is.
I've tried pretty much everything on the planet looking for a good knowledge base/personal wiki that is graph based. My current tool of choice is a humble little app called Scapple, but it's far from satisfactory.
We think knowledge is much complex than a simple linear note taking process (Evernote), but also needs (at times) simpler tool than a full fledged computing platform (Jupyter).
With amie one can enrich ones notes with whatever metadata one wants to track, we call them key value pairs, branch off whenever one is exploring parallel ideas and connect every piece of ones knowledge via references.
One can do it all via a Gui, just like in Evernote, but also via our python client giving the user full flexibility.
While we have a lot of visual features coming to make the note taking part neater, we won't support a fully featured markdown-like input for text entry in the near future tho.
Let us know if you can use it to build your personal knowledge base, we think you're going to love amie!
I now will add sentry.io in my AdBlock+ list.
I am getting a login in screen with nothing else. I value my privacy over your service. But I sincerely wish you the best on your endeavors.
Also if you're going to be a privacy zealot you might as well switch to uBlock Origin over Adblock+.
That said, having your website break when it's not loaded is bad.
Talk about being egocentric. The world has larger parts that don't even have access to Internet.
Facebook, for example, likely has a fair amount of personal data about a lot of people who don't have meaningful internet access. Something as simple as their contact information being saved in the phone of someone who uses Facebook mobile is enough for the company to create a "shadow profile" for them. That kind of data collection doesn't benefit the data owner by providing a "free" service in exchange for their information and it occurs entirely without their knowledge or consent. This is exactly the kind of privacy violation GDPR seeks to curtail and I think the benefits can and do extend to the global masses more than most people realize.
Black people have been guaranteed equal voting rights in theory since the 15th amendment was ratified in 1870, which was 148 years ago. (And free black citizens existed and could vote in parts of the USA before that.)
Black people since then have faced practical barriers to equal voting in many parts of the country, continuing to the present day.
For smaller screens, I think it's better not to try to put as much stuff on the front page? A button going to another screen might work better than a widget.
Jokes aside, if you have time to get in touch with us we'd love to chat about the experience you had with the tools (or the lack thereof ) during your post doc!
Coda lab is great tho, and we have a lot of features in the pipeline that will actually add containerised, reproducible artefacts of your scientific computing work and environment straight from a Jupiter notebook.
