Good morning. It's 4:15 am and here I am again.
I believe that Tana is the next evolutionary jump in the world of note-taking tools. It has "Supertags", backlinks, inheritance, ontologies, etc. I mean, what Thought Leader in their right mind wouldn't trip over themselves to go all-in and, at the very least, start a YouTube channel telling everyone how they manage their interstitial journaling and meditation practices using a clever combination of, oh never mind. Apparently no one has ever heard of Tinderbox. Tinderbox is a better outliner, a better note-taking app, and a better publishing tool than Tana dreams of being. It has all of the fancy ontology bits that Tana has, and more. Other than cloud access and multi-user features, there's nothing new here.
I'm not being fair to Tana. It is very good, and I really do think it's the way forward. It makes Roam look like nothing more than a proof-of-concept for what Tana is. Also, it's much more immediately accessible than Tinderbox for most people. It's just that I wish people wouldn't go on like all this stuff has never been done before.
I haven't decided whether I'll continue using Tana, but you're damn straight I'll continue using Tinderbox.

I don't want another blog, but I seem have one anyway. Or, more accurately, I've re-purchased the baty.blog domain and am using that with my old Tinderbox-managed blog. It's not technically a new blog, then. It's an old blog that has been resurrected. I have no idea if it'll stay, or why I'm doing it, so you might not want to get comfortable.
I will say that the way I've built this using Tinderbox is exactly how I want my blog to work. I get individual posts, grouped by day. Each post can display a title, or not. It can have a "featured image", or not. It can be crossposted via RSS, or not (this post is, for example). I have attributes for the current weather, Topics, etc.
Plus, it's fun! I don't feel I need to make excuses for having fun :).
It looks like I'm fighting a small Tinderbox bug in the most recent beta. It's affecting the Archives page icons. No big deal, though. The support for Tinderbox by both the author and the community remains outstanding.
UPDATE: October 22, 2022, the next day, this was fixed.
