It's More Logical to Host an Event Than Attend One. Or at least that's the logic I've lived by since the early '00s.
Austria vetoes #Mercosur deal saying it goes against EU Green Deal - https://www.euractiv.com/section/economy-jobs/news/austria-vetoes-mercosur-deal-saying-it-goes-against-eu-green-deal/ quite right - excellent move #brazil
We Need Fresh Garlic. So glad my spam filter did not throw away this message of clear urgent need.
Switching from backlog to potent resource: surfacing my anti-library
I have now completed the migration of my 11 years of evernote archives into markdown and Obsidian (in a separate vault, to keep my current notes uncluttered). Joplin was an enormous help in transforming ENEX into markdown, even if it required a few fixes to prevent import going wrong.
Grab the popcorn because the @NASAPersevere@twitter.com rover has sent us a one-of-kind video of her Mars landing. For the first time in history, we can see multiple angles of what it looks like to touch down on the Red Planet. #CountdownToMars

De @Datavakbond (datavakbond.nl) heeft een overzicht gemaakt van wat politieke partijen in hun programma's zeggen over data, datagebruik en regulering.

Bookfeed.io lets you make a list of authors you are interested in, and then provides you with a RSS feed that will alert you to new books published by those authors. It uses the Google Books API. It’s a clever small personal tool that Lukas Mathis built. I like it.
23 maart de SOS Tech Awards van Open State Foundation en SETUP, de Black and Glass Box Awards voor openheid en transparantie, en de Dode / Levende Mussen Awards voor verantwoordelijkheid nemen bij technische misstappen (ipv alleen op z'n Facebooks 'sorry' zeggen en over tot de orde van de dag).
Journey is an interesting new Obsidian plugin, showing you the notes that form a path between two notes, so you can explore how your notes/thoughts are linked.
A few notes after reading @lukas posting on personal CRM: Personal CRM as a Not-LinkedIn, the CRM notes I keep are centered on remembering context.
