@twelvety You bought Tinderbox? Man, you are in deep. I look forward to hearing more about it. That is one app I’ve never quite understood.

@canion I did! I figured that the stars were aligning for me to finally buy it after seeing the Daybook example from @jack (and the old 2008 one from @bsag, though she uses Emacs for that now). I never clicked with Tinderbox before, either, but the outline/freeform database that can live in a linear date structure really fits with how I think about factual “this happened on this day" kinds of things. TiddlyWiki still suits me great for "what was I thinking about at this time" stuff.

@twelvety I hope you find a chance to post about your experience with it. It’s an app that looks full of potential, but I have no idea how I would actually use it.

@twelvety I don't remember if I sent you this before, but I have a few example Tinderbox files you can grab here if you're interested.

@jack Thank you so much! Your Tinderbox setup is the most similar to how I'd like to use mine, so this is going to help a ton. After two hours of playing with prototypes and actions last night, I'm starting to see what gets people so excited by the app. :)
