Rough idea: information in the shape you were looking for. Ideally a "technically ..." alongside a "and usually this means...", like how a friend might explain it.

The idea is to augment, to stay succinct. Link to good notes, intuitive bootstraps. Add details if only summaries are typical to find out there, summary if a mess of details is common out there.

Also, I use it to learn. See the Feynman technique, summarized as "if you can't explain it, you probably don't understand it."

...both of these ideas mean first versions are messy. I try to distill over time. Later may mean years ^^


If you think this is a good idea, you may prefer your own.

...but you're welcome here. A fresh set of eyes is always welcome. I'll accept accounts as soon as I see them.
