About SynapCards

SynapCards is a self-directed technical project I am working on while taking a break from work. It has 3 main purposes, listed in order of importance:

  1. Allows me to learn and experiment with various web technologies, such as html, css, javascript, web backends and infrastrucure, (specifically GCP, Google Cloud Platform), etc.
  2. I have been searching for a better way for me to organize and look up all the information that I come across. So I am using two familiar things from the physical world (neural synapses and index cards) to create a virtual knowledge database. Typically, an index card holds one chunk of knowledge, such as notes from a Ted talk or from an article, perferably with a link to the source video or document. But a card could also be a higher level abstraction like "Favorite Inspirational Ted Talks". Synapses are less defined. They connect the index cards via the tags, hyperlinks, and maybe other relationships. I haven't fleshed out that concept yet.
  3. If this actually turns into a real product and I can make some money from it, great!! If not, that's OK too. Its the journey that is important, not the destination.
