Somehow, even though I've known of it for years, I never actually tried TiddlyWiki until today...
... and I'm kind of hooked on it now. It's quite different than any other tool I've used before, but it's flexibility and performance (so far at least) are rivaling anything else I've tried. And it's a simple file I can sync between devices with ease! 🤯
First case I've heard of where this kind of incident has gone this far, but it's just the start. Apple has a very similar system in place.

"Your mind keeps reminding you of things when you can't do anything about them ... As soon as you tell yourself that you might need to do something, ... there's a part of you that thinks you should be doing that something all the time. Everything you've told yourself you ought to do, it thinks you should be doing right now."

I experience this so often - most acutely on the weekend when I am trying to spend time with the kid and the wife but I know I need to do some other things... Writing those things down doesn't relax me in those cases - although I'd certainly be even less relaxed if I hadn't written them down on a system I trust.
"Welcome to ... "knowledge work," ... you have to think about your stuff more than you realize but not as much as you're afraid you might. ... Peter Drucker wrote: "In knowledge work ... the task is not given; it has to be determined. 'What are the expected results from this work?' is ... the key question ... There is usuall no right answer; there are choices instead." ... We're never really taught that we have to think about our work before we can do it ... Thinking in a concentrated manner to define desired outcomes and requisite next actions is something few people feel they have to do (until they have to),"

This is something that really surprised me when I first started a career after college. I was surprised. I still regularly try to explain this feeling to newcomers - I typically lump it in with the personal quality of "taking initiative". It's interesting to me that here it's defined without that word - and that it's intrinsic to all knowledge work.
The Tiny Tiny RSS app will no longer be in the Google Play store... It seems like that'll lead to fewer users discovering it, and further slow death of RSS in general 😥
That thing where you put on your headphones so you don't have to listen to the person behind you's bullshit.
