This wiki serves as my professional and public knowledge base. It's where I go to save information that I think will be useful in the future, for myself or others. I like to start with a few simple rules:

  • To retrieve information, I should know where to start: a Schelling point. For me, it's wiki.klenwell.com, this page.
  • It shouldn't take me more than three clicks to get from my starting point to the information I'm looking for.
  • Links/URLs will tie everything together. They are the edges in my knowledge graph. Keep the graph shallow.

To minimize spam and maintenance costs, public edit access is restricted.
