If you’ve saved some of your favorite links, please share!

  • I like CheCheDaWaff's comments on r/Anki; see here for a decent place to start. In particular, for proofs, I've shifted toward adding "prove this theorem" cards rather than trying to break the proof into many small pieces. (The latter adheres more to the spaced repetition philosophy, but I found it just doesn't really work.)
  • Richard Reitz has a Google doc with a bunch of stuff.
  • I like this forum comment (as a data point, and as motivation to try to avoid similar failures).
  • I like https://eshapard.github.io
  • Master How To Learn also has some insights but most posts are low-quality.

One thing I should mention is that a lot of the above links aren't written well. See this Quora answer for a view I basically agree with.

I couldn’t stop thinking about it

I agree that thinking about this is pretty addicting. :) I think this kind of motivation helps me to find and read a bunch online and to make occasional comments (such as the grandparent) and brain dumps, but I find it's not quite enough to get me to invest the time to write a comprehensive post about everything I've learned.

In light of reading Hazard's Shortform Feed -- which I really enjoy -- based on Raemon's Shortform feed, I'm making my own. There be thoughts here. Hopefully, this will also get me posting more.
