Vim

Yes! Even many websites and web apps implement some Vim standards. Particularly \ for search. 

Vim

This is a superb overview! I've used Vim for about 2 years now, but I still learned a bunch of things from this post that I didn't pick up from other cheatsheets or articles. 

My 2-cents: Vim itself is powerful as an editor, but I always missed some IDE features. What I've come to realise is that the real power of Vim is not the editor, but the keybindings. I installed the Vim extension in VSCode some time ago and have loved the hybrid workflow. Since then, I've been gradually incorporating Vim keybindings into all the tools I use for text — like Overleaf for writing papers in LaTeX and Zettlr for writing notes in Markdown. I still use Vim itself for small scripts and quickly editing files. It's so powerful being able to go between applications and never have to think about what your fingers are doing to transform ideas into output. 

One thing I still haven't quite figured out is in-browser text entry. So far, I haven't liked the solutions I've found, but it's something I'm looking into for the future. Writing this comment without my usual keybindings is... slow. 

On Expressing Your Concerns

There will be a Sequences Discussion Club event to talk about this post. Join us on Clubhouse tonight for a ~1h discussion. https://www.joinclubhouse.com/event/PQRv1RoA

If you listen from 31:54 (linked here) to 46:00, Lex articulates very nicely what's unique and interesting about Clubhouse and they discuss how it compares to Skinner-box social media. It's a nice summary of the underlying value and definitely echoes some of my experiences so far.

Clubhouse

Try joining communities/clubs on topics you’re interested in. Then any rooms started by their members should pop up in your lobby. Also, I’ve heard that following people you’re interested in helps improve the suggestions.

I'd love to do that sometime (timezones permitting). I'm @gianlucatruda on Clubhouse.

Great summary! For those reading the comments, there is a growing Rationalist-oriented community on Clubhouse. Join here: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/rationality-live

Announcement: Real-time discussions in a new Clubhouse community.

Update: I tried searching again now and it pops up when I search “rationality” now. Seems it just took a while to update.

Seems that there isn't yet a robust way to share these new communities (that I've found). But I'm glad you're finally in. Looking forward to some future conversations!

I don't think it's you. These in-app communities are a brand new feature, so I suspect it's still a bit buggy. Thanks for letting me know. 

Try visit this event link from your phone and then tap on the club name. Does that work? 

I'll also try invite you directly from the app.
