Smart notes build on smart thinking and apps can help

David Sparks on research apps and what he calls the upcoming app revolution:

This influx of cross-linking, dynamic referencing, and the linkable chaos that these apps create feel, to me, like something entirely new, and that bell is not going to get unrung. Not only do I expect these apps to push further ahead with these tools, but I also anticipate other apps to develop in the same direction. A year from now, we are going to have some fantastic options.

What is a walk-n-talk?

Craig Mod:

A walk-n-talk works like this: gather 5-10 curious, kind, generous, patient, inspiring people and set a walking course through the countryside for a week, plus or minus a day or two. A week works well because it may take a day or two or three for people to open up, for the so-called “situational extroverts” to fully emerge from their shells, for the nerves and discomfort of jet lag or the walk itself to be quelled by a solid night’s sleep or carrying the right amount of water or taping up hot spots on the feet just so.

Sounds like a good time.

It’s intergenerational justice

The youth-led climate movement will not be ignored write Jay Inslee, Varshini Prakash:

Last month’s strikes felt both exhilarating and heartbreaking. It’s deeply saddening that children must fight tooth and nail to force elected leaders to care about their future. But the strikes also showcased all the progress we’ve made in just a few short years, and a glimpse of what’s possible if this movement continues gaining momentum. Insiders in Washington, DC, may not know it yet, but this young American generation’s leaders know that we face an urgent climate crisis and that addressing it is a matter of life and death. They’re acting like it—it’s time that the rest of us did too.

Climate justice is a matter of intergenerational justice.
