Notes on thinking tools

This is a small collection of notes I’ve made for different thinking tools, aka tools for thought. These are ideas that have developed over time, not always coherent, and often overlapping. They are in development.

Ideas are cheap, but execution is expensive. Feel free to borrow ideas, and let me know if you beat me to building any of this. I’m sure I’d like to try it out, so send me a message!
