Really interesting Chris, I’d heard of the method of loci before but hadn’t heard much about the rest to be honest.

Definitely worth some more exploration, who doesn’t want improved memory! #OpenBlog19

It’s the Faustian deal between tech &society via controlling societal norms/desires to commodify/control everday behaviour 🙁

These are slides from lectures I give to 4th year risk & goverance students”

Read Feedback or Finding Out? – A Reflection on Learning Observations and Walkthroughs by Aaron Aaron (ReadWriteRespond)

Tks Rachel, the free version of Notion is good to get a taster with but limited. I paid for personal plan. Just gotten a chance to read back over your ‘The most valuable lesson I ever learned..’ #OpenBlog19 post…powerful, and absolutely true to life for me too, thank you 😊
