@TomD summarized a key takeaway from the TBX Lesson: Tinderbox Meetup 28AUG22 - An End-to-End Overview of Contribution. Thanks, @TomD
Tinderbox meets you where you are and pulls you into the present and beyond.
For many, investing time in learning Tinderbox feels like an expense–they are losing something, and it costs them something (time, money, ego, fear, pain)–rather than seeing it as an investment–the foundation for future, in some cases exponential, gains (time, money, skills, community, making a difference,…). The time I’ve put into Tinderbox is most certainly the latter.
When using Tinderbox, you are also learning the fundamentals of knowledge management and computing. You are learning:
- Languages of computing and the Internet: HTML, CSS, markdown, command line, regex, JSON, Perl-like frameworks
- Gaining knowledge of and the opportunity to explore complimentary tools and processes: BBEdit, Zotero, Devonthink, Pandoc, exciting, text expanding, search, image management, writing
- Mental models: logic, design, structure, appearance, organization, metacognition, atomization, premature formalization, incremental formalization, vulnerability, context, history, problem-solving, inheritance; consistency, precision, storytelling, instruction, asset development, pattern matching; quite possibly the most critical learning,
- Community: communication, socialization, the kindness of strangers (who quickly become friends, if you’re open to it).
Frankly, the learning opportunities are endless.
Please, hit reply and share:
