# The Living Thing

All the notebooks that are fit to show

Here are my public notebooks.

This means: these notebooks concern topics about which I wish to inform myself. All conclusions are provisional, all ideas are half-baked and nothing, at all, has been reviewed. Typos, spelling errors and bad edits abound. You’re welcome.

Much of this information is digested from the blogs on my blogroll, or the papers on my reading list.

These are rated on the 3 point scale of *Usefulness* (🔧), *Novelty* (💡), *Uncertainty* (🤪) and *Roughness* (🚧).
