Stay in the flow : Scrivener and post blogging

This post is about using Scrivener for the redaction of post, and practices to stay in the flow.

  • Before, I was writing directly in WordPress, in markdown, or offline in some markdown editor.
  • Now I do the design and the edition in scrivener. Then export to Markdown, and push it to WordPress .

I will describe :

  • the benefits I feel using this approach,
  • the alternatives I used before,
  • and where I feel there is still some frictions.

After a quick view on the setup.

The Setup

Here is the core setup I use . Corkboard on the left, Text on the right ( Scrivenings). I used the Quick reference to type the text of one card. read more

These days ( 2014) , My main professional interest is about the collective intelligence and cooperative behavior of human, especially in the « professional » field. I believe most of the impact can be done where people spend 8h a day. If you can impact this , you will impact them when they go back in their families, and from there, the « society ». read more

Persona shows their concerns

Lets create a few fictitious Persona, and run a few Root Cause Analysis on their concerns. From these concerns we will derive needs ( and barriers) . Then we aggregate the result from different Personas, and this give us a start to the Haskell Ecosystem, these personas are the actors from the Ecosystem. either as Key Partners, Key Resources or Market Segment( and from this understanding we would derive opportunities, products, and « go to market « strategy). read more

What moves me

When preparing the root Cause Analysis at the 1st Person, I realize I was listing feelings in fact, or values, so I did the motivator exercise from Jurgen Appello, i.e. :

  1. classifying your motivation in your personal order, then
  2. perceiving the delta for a given situation ( target would be here is a Haskell job) ( the + /- here below )

interesting findings:

  • mainly gains, no loss
  • if I would map these values to my currents jobs, I am FAR offset… 1 to 3 are barely touched…

    Why did I created this blog ?

    The Short Story:

  • I want to have a job I like, that is: Experiment with Haskell. I realized it will not happen by magic and that I may have to create it. I also realize I will not be able to do it alone. nor would it be fun. And I will need other Haskell lovers feedback to keep me going. and Celebrate.

    Back To Life

    Resurrecting my blog, that was down after a hack in 2009. Never cared putting it back, as I was not sharing publicly. Now I am back with this Haskell roadmap motivation. Funnily enough, I picked my kanban to test the rotating images ( QuickSlider) on the Land Page, and I realize that may be a good idea to share the way forward, in fact …..may have to manage version, thought;-) read more
