Short version: Check out my sub-blog called Notes.

One of the goals I had when I started this blog was to just put more of what I do online. However over time I’ve noticed that in order for me to feel like an idea is “worthy” of a blog post it has to be at least either well-polished or inherently interesting. There are problems with both of these criteria: well-polished work takes a significant amount of time which I don’t always have, and work that I think is uninteresting could be useful to others. David Robinson illustrated this idea beautifully in a recent talk:

Snippets of code, figures, and thoughts that are stuck on my computer have no chance of being helpful to anyone else! Therefore in order to post more mundane content more often without diminishing the posts on Postcards I’m starting a sub-blog called Notes. My goal with notes is to leave fewer ideas and slices of code “on the cutting room floor” with the additional benefit of being able to develop ideas which may lead to other posts or projects. Here are three recent notes that might interest you:

Thanks to Oliver Keyes and of course David Robinson for the inspiration!
