Where to Start

June 16, 2020

As there are now a few hundred posts on this site I thought I’d provide some entry points to my writing.

  • Note-taking: I wrote a post on a note-taking system called Zettelkasten, which got some attention on Hacker News. There’s also a follow-up post, and I might do another one soon (currently at ~335k words in there, in just over 3,000 “Zettel”).
  • I’m currently working on a series on Revolutions. See that page for a summary of where it’s going.
  • Before that, I started a thread on what is interesting, ambition, and the avant-garde. This is an series of reflections on how step-changes occur in nature and human culture. The plan is to connect it with the revolutions series.

I'm Bryan Kam. I'm thinking about complexity and selfhood. Please sign up to my newsletter or see more here.
