This is a "tech recap" list.

At present, I see only myself posting to this.
I was inspired by  Kragen Sitaker's personal mailing lists[1] concept.

Why am I doing this?

0. bookmarks are fine. But, they tend to "drown". Also, bookmarking
websites do not encourage detailed note making. It is not a technology
limitation, but more of a "Uh oh, I have a text box in front of me,
what do I write in this now?".
Surprisingly, writing emails is not that difficult, because there is
an established pattern to writing emails.

1. Emails has threaded conversations. Whether I'm replying to my own
messages, or a subscriber is, the threaded conversations have way of
progressing the conversation in part or whole, to many many levels.
Since librelist allows data export, one day, I might present the
conversations thus [2] (flask mailing list archive).

More than anything, this is an experiment ;)
