Heya! Oakland, California 👋

Changing the order of you daily could use some design polish. I would suggest to add the reorder icons (3 small stacked stripes) on the right. Furthermore I would make the red crosses a little bit smaller.

Finally I think that it would be cool if you could split the daily up in morning, day, and evening.

5

Just sent FL profile to a friend, and was curious what it would look like without private journals. Incognito in Chrome gave me this error, looks like I'm logged out. Couldn’t recreate in Safari.

2

Been thinking of ways to sort journals, since different types are emerging for me.

Maybe as a starting point → on desktop it shows Daily + All, but love how on mobile share sheet, it shows Daily + Other.

Going to my All list is so long, cause all the Daily ones are there too.

5

Another thing in Daily I’m noticing is that I’ll post to some journals, like a note or question for myself.

But then it puts it in a green circle. So now late in the day, I go through my Daily journals that are green, to see if I actually did them all for real.

Maybe some way to post to a journal, without it counting toward Daily.

2

Would be cool to “pass” on a journal in Daily. Like saying I’m not going to do this today, but show me it on Daily tomorrow.

Maybe it just then hides for the day, and then resets.

Realizing for Fiber journal, don’t need to do 365 days a year, but still is “semi-daily” thing.

2

Have 13 journals in Daily. At start of the day I’ll do a couple things, and then kinda wish the iOS widget didn’t show one completed Daily journal at bottom. Think I’d rather see all the upcoming journals left to do. Until reach the tipping point, where there’s not enough journals left in Daily, so then showing done green circle ones feels good.

So so very minor, but thought came to mind so sharing :)

I have found recently that I've been going back to previous entries to reference and get the link so I can insert it into a new entry. Linking entries seems like it will also be an important part of the "webs" view of a journal.

Right now linking entries means I need to have a second tab open so I can navigate to the entry, get the link, then switch to the tab containing the entry I'm writing and paste in the link. It might be nice if there's a way to do this all from one interface, so maybe as I compose an entry it can be pinned to the top and then I can navigate around FL while referencing other entries and copying links and such.

1

When I see people running experiments on FL, it always makes me want to try the same and participate lol. It's cool. By the end of 2021, it'll be interesting to see how many new things I'm experimenting with because of people here.

I’m finding Futureland is super fast and stable today :)

I hope everyone is finding the same and thanks so much for your patience this week while we were working out these changes. <3

3

An idea that comes up often is kind of like 'entry templates' or something and I'm starting to think it's a good idea. Perhaps something you can define within the settings of the Journal. For example in my 'Espresso' journal every entry includes:

espresso =
grind =
water =
output =
extraction time =

The primary reason I don't use the iOS app for these entries is because I need this text. So I use the web app and then copy and paste this from the previous entries. I know a bunch of other users do this too, so just sharing and capturing this here.

4

Would be cool to have a feature to "archive" old journals. It could appear on the profile page as an "Archived Journals" folder or be tucked away entirely.

It'd be nice to apply public/private to specific entries in public journals. Sometimes in public journals (like code or evergreen garden), I want to make an entry private but other entries can/should be public or vice versa (this is more rare for me tbh).

Might be useful to be able to 'pin' a journal to the top of Daily if you've already contributed to it. This could be useful if you want to continue to come back to it before the day is over and don't want it to drop to the bottom of chain (causing you to forget to come back to it).

1

In terms of ‘screen work’ the journals I enjoy the most are ones with a bunch of moving visuals. I like when they are mixed with like just screen shots which kind of forces the viewer to ruminate and think about what’s being made. The moving element makes the entire journal feel more alive and in motion. The static elements allow for discussion.

Examples:

https://futureland.tv/greg/code
https://futureland.tv/ozzdesigns/free-throws
https://futureland.tv/internetvin/code

1

Futureland is running super fast for me 👍🏾.
Was running into similar issues that were already mentioned here, but noticing a big difference today.

EDIT: the only one I run I still run into speed issues with is the "Water" Journal. I think because of the number of entries that have to populate?

2

I've been wondering a bunch about 'crafting entries' on Futureland. FL is the primary tool I use for my creative process at this point. One thing I wonder about is like where do I put and structure a document. Like a 'crafted entry' that I might want to share with others in some way. It's something that I might come back to and edit often adding new sections and so on. The main issue I had with doing this now is that each entry does not contain the process of that entry. Mainly I would want all of my 'edits' or 'additions' to be documented in some way. So I can see like when an entry was first published but then I can see like, "OK this entry was added to over multiple months." This might be a dumb idea but something that just came up.

1

Strange behavior that may or may not be related to the recent infra issues: I'm simultaneously logged in and not logged in. I can see my journals on Daily and make posts by pressing "n", but the menu on the lower right is in the defaut logged-off state, my profile picture is missing on the top of the activity feed, and clicking on the links on home navigates me to futureland.tv/null/pith or whatever the journal is.

Refresh solves it but thought I'd mention in case it's a separate issue.

4

I keep getting this error when trying to post to any journal. Quitting Safari/Chrome used to fix the problem, but that stopped working today.

When I see something interesting on FL, I scroll through the journal to learn more and then almost always think like, "hm what else does this person have on their 'Daily'? lol

Maybe the Webs version of Meta journal could include a journal for more website tools (UX, bugs, feature requests) focused things + a journal for more mindset and approach ideas (states of being and modes of making with Futureland).

Something that I'm playing around with is "menus" for some journals. So for my Rest journal and Writing journal I've got a menu of things I could do within that context / daily practice. This way when I sit down I don't have to think about what to do, can just be.

I've bookmarked them so I can come back and keep editing them.

Wonder if there is a way to show your Daily list over time in Stats.

Like in March you added these three journals and removed this one.

Could be cool way to see growth, interests and priorities shift over time.

Wonder if would make sense for the journal name and the contributor of the entry to be included on the page, when sharing a private link to a single post.

On the journal page in the sidebar, wonder if there’s an easy way to indicate it’s Private. Trying to feel out what journals should be private or public, and just having a little 🔐 icon there would remind me, and maybe feel at peace knowing the one I’m in is private.

Often times I’m like “is this private?” → either click into Journal Settings or have to go to Profile to find the answer.

1

I wonder if it makes sense to have the option to display your ‘Daily’ in some way on your profile. So you can see the entire catalog of public journals but then also the ones currently in daily focus.

4

Small bug when recording audio on iOS app. The timer stays at 0:00 (but the audio records fine).

When adding a note based post to a journal, wonder if there was an option to have it not count toward Daily. Experimenting with including some other notes amongst emoji based Daily journals. Like a little toggle switch next to the emoji picker to "Don't Count for Daily". Might be overkill 😉

A couple journals in my Daily now, are kinda like sketches. I don't think I'll get to incorporate them for another 1 to 4 weeks, but I like having them there as a hint of what's next, something to work toward, an intention.

Not a real issue I don't think, just my little Unite app wrapper being silly.

But wanted to share cause I was wondering if this is what a new users sees when they sign up. That classic blank slate, can either be so exciting or so intimidating.

Also, seeing that Daily description there. Feel like that could be expanded more since Daily is the center of this tool and main metric :)

1

It would be nice if you could browse a journal both chronologically and reverse chronologically. If you send a link to a journal as a way of showing process, maybe it makes sense to see that process unfold as you scroll down rather than up. Most process books/case studies/articles read top to bottom. But then again, for websites with periodic updates the most recent is always on top. I'm not sure which way is more intuitive.

I think it's really just a matter of clarifying what direction time goes; it can be disorienting jumping to an entry on a journal and situating yourself. For someone who has no idea about FL even more so I'd imagine.

2

Something that might be cool for journals that span multiple years with a lot of entries, is to have some kind of 'Jump to' feature where you can easily select an exact date and jump to it on the timeline

In daily it would be cool to know which journals are missing just yesterday’s output so it’s a nudge to try to keep your streak going. Maybe the number is still in the circle but just faded so as to indicate “don’t let this streak slip away”

Kind of game-y but might be fun

Getting a 503 error on ‘seemingly’ all journals. When I close the PWA / browser and open again the error goes away. Then comes back in a bit.

Some users have mentioned the same error to me. Closing seems to help while we sort it out.

‘might be a DNS cache thing’

:)

1

Need access to my bookmarks on mobile. Something that might make sense is just opening a journal, tapping something and then seeing a list of all my bookmarks for that journal with the date and title of the bookmark.

Recently Futureland has become a much more essential part of my day. The new widget takes up most of my Home Screen, I have the website pinned in chrome, and also have the Progressive web app installed.

I just want to give a shout-out and thank you to @internetvin and @lucas for taking the time to listen and act on feedback. You guys have built something really special here that absolutely has changed how I live.

It also just “feels” like this community has gotten a bit closer through our collective continued use of FL.

Anyways lol I’m just in a good mood - hope everyone has an amazing Daily. 😀

2

Not sure if anyone else does this but I start my day reorganizing my daily. On weekdays it looks entirely different than weekends so I’m moving projects in and out of it. One thing I’d love is to easily add a journal from this edit screen where I can currently delete or shuffle the order of daily. Not a big issue just a minor improvement.

2

I use my iPad a lot so I tried to use FL on my iPad using the app instead of the browser, but it doesn’t work properly. It doesn’t load the activity feed properly, or accurately even show the total number of journals I have. I have way more than 5. But just some feedback to help develop the app for devices like an iPad

Quick idea of being able to clear all “unread numbers” from Shadowing. Find that I’ll check activity, see some posts, and then go to Shadows tab but I’ve already seen them + with weekly email, would be nice to press reset button in that scenario too.

In bed but had to get out to type this before I forget. An interesting idea that came up from @tarun was making each journal on Futureland a POST-able end point.

2

Before I forget. Some journal states that came to mind.

Request before shadowing
Shadowing but no commenting or activity feed for creators who don’t mind observers but want zero ‘input’ or ‘interference’ in the process.

When doing a post in your Daily, and you get pop up asking to add for yesterday cause you missed it.

Wondering if the journal entry date could be for yesterday? Maybe just like 11:59 the day before or something.

Think I just deleted a duplicate post in a journal, since two posts had the same date, but it was maybe one of these “count toward yesterday” ones.

3

The share sheet option in the latest Test Flight might not be there now? I’m not seeing it. In post-screenshot page and from Photos app itself.

3

Every time I try to search for a journal I'm always doing this dance. Wonder if it can be more "universal" so search term does both users and journals. Maybe the results groups by users and journals.

Do really like that my own journals come up in search results even if I don't select "Search journals" first.

Found this lil comment bug as I was typing. Seems like 'commenting' or 'branching discussions' is a big part of what we want to do when in FL.

I am finding that the text for 'link expires in a day' is hard to read. I think this is an important piece of information that I looked over as a user. Visibility is quite low

1

Got this error when I tried to create a new journal. But when I closed and reopened Futureland, the journal was there.

Super cool to see all the new journals everyone is creating in the newsletter this week!

Been thinking about these questions when starting a bunch of new journals, curious to find out from experimentation and if anyone has thoughts from their own personal practices here ✨

~ How many things can I do on repeat in a sustainable manner?
~ How can one daily / weekly practices lead to the next one?
~ How much of life make sense to structure and put on repeat , versus free flowing?

Something that might be worth noting here is that many people who are extracting a lot of value out of FL use 'Daily' obviously but also a kind of unexpected thing is that many of them tell me they have a kind of 'Daily'-meta journal. They name them different things and sometimes they are public and other times they are private. But many users tell me they have a journal where they kind of reflect on their process for that day or optimizations that can be made in their 'Daily' process.

Water needs to be easier to join on mobile. All open journals should be.

I recently had to explain how to join it to someone on a phone and it was absurd. I explained 'Daily' to them and they were like "whoa yeah this is cool! So how do I add Water?". I said, "well you need to join the journal first". Then of course they could not navigate to the Water journal from their phone since there is no way to 'search' for it. So I had to ask them to leave the app and open the browser and then in the address bar type the url: https://futureland.tv/internetvin/water (I had to say this out loud), it obviously took a bit to type that url in. Once they navigated to the journal they needed to login, so we waited for that to happen. Then once they were logged in, they 'joined' the Water journal. Then they flipped back to the app and 'Daily' had not recognized that they had 'joined' the Water journal yet. So we waited a bit and chatted (lol) closed the app and stuff. Then tried again and it was there and he added it to his Daily and now uses it every day.

There's obviously a lot to work on here. But maybe a simple starting point is just making the url simpler and more global: https://futureland.tv/water

Would be interesting if in the Journal feed it maybe automatically noted when you changed the title or description of the journal. Ethan updated the title of this journal to Landscape Design I'm cleaning up house a bit, and some of the journals are shifting a bit.

Maybe this is overkill, and if it's something big enough to note you just make your own journal entry, ha. Either way, cool to see journals change and morph.

Want Webs more and more as I use FL in new ways. Some of my journals have multiple (and different) entries every day so would be nice to split each of those entry "type" as a journal in of itself and tie them back to the main, overarching journal.

2

Create New Journal flow right in Daily section could be interesting, if Daily is one of the main way to use, should be super fluid here. Ran into this wanting to quickly sketch out some new journals, but so long to create new journal then add to Daily, and then re-order the Daily list.

Another solution, on New Journal page, maybe there could be a checkbox to add to your Daily all in that new journal flow.

2

On Home sidebar, for Daily. Would be cool if when clicking on a journal in Daily, it just opened a New Entry Pop Up, instead of bringing me to that journal. Most of the time just need to add quick entry or emoji, and would prefer staying on the Home page, instead of jumping over to each journal individually.

3

Now that I have more than 3 things in Daily, would love a taller iOS widget so I can see more of Daily journal list without clicking into the app.

2

As I'm starting to use Daily more, would love Reminder Notifications. Think it would help for the first handful of weeks as I build the new habits, then imagine would turn them off. Like on a journal by journal basis.

Been using Futureland in mostly "single player" mode for the last couple weeks being offline for winter break. So nice just to play around with some new journals and my own thing, or not be on any digital device at all. But also, glad to be back online and seeing what everyone is up to ✨

8

Would be cool if we added a 'hint' on the 'Shadow' button so everyone knows what it does. "If you Shadow a journal, you'll get updates on it once a week."

2

quick search is broken for me but only when I search for the 'pomodoros' journal. Can't click out of search either when this happens. Other ones seem to be working fine.

2

I was just looking at the comments feature and was wondering if it was possible to have a way to reply to comments in a thread from the Home? Also, I really like the feeling of closeness to everyone else through Activity. I do wonder if the same feeling can be achieved as more and more people join. What were your thoughts on this?

1

Stats should probably be expanded and allow you to view multiple years (at least on desktop). Also it might be cool to be able to annotate various points on the entry graph so you can make notes about high points or low points and why it happened to see any correlations in year over year use. It would be cool if you could overlay use year over year as well. I would love to see my FL usage in 2019 vs 2020 vs 2021. What were my most active journals? How did my entries increase over time overall and in specific journals? It would be cool to just see things positively compounding over multiple years.

2

I have 22 journals in my Daily right now. It would be cool if there was some ability to create a visual grouping of journals on my daily. It doesn’t need to be labelled or anything just a way to kind of visually separate some journals from other ones.

I’m finding as the list of journals in my daily grows bigger it becomes more difficult to think about the order of things and notice ways to chain behaviours together by grouping some journals with other ones

1

Would be nice to get a list of all the new journals made on FL in the past week as part of the weekly summary. There's been a lot of new ones recently and they're easy to miss if you don't watch the activity feed.

2

We need to show number of entries beside each journal in Daily. This is especially useful for journals where it’s important contribute to them multiple times a day (Water, Stretching, Breathing, Regular movement for postural purposes and on)

@stevet is having issues with his weekly summary where the only entries he gets updates on are from the Futureland journal. I'm not experiencing this problem set. Is anyone else?

5

Can't update my website in profile for some reason. Checked out devtools: "Done" button isn't disabled nor are any web requests being sent. 🤷‍♂️

I’m noticing how some of the entries around my journal are structured around 25-35 minute work blocks (as well as other journals). Having a timer built into FL might lean into this behavior; go to a journal, type in pomodoro(35) and it begins a 35 minute clock.

Even crazier, there’s a “pomodoro” mode in a journal. When you flip it on, it just starts a pomodoro “marathon” and it cycles between 35 minute work -> 5 minute rest + quick entry -> 35 minute work -> … until you flip it off.

Tangentially, sometimes 35 minutes isn’t enough so users should be allowed to adjust as desired.

1

An update I'd like to see on the 'Activity' interface is a separation between 'tracker' journals (or whatever) and other ones so that we can bring Water back.

2

Before I forget. Something that bothers me is not being able to comment when someone creates a new journal. I think the act of creating a new journal is so interesting. It's hard to describe but it's like when someone creates a journal they are realizing they are curious about something. It usually triggers a bunch of questions (and excitement) in my mind when I see that someone created a new journal.

It would be cool if like the creation of the journal generated some kind of hollow entry or something. I'm not sure how to handle it but some kind of thing that you can comment and discuss. I don't like having to wait for someone to create an entry before we can start talking about the journal.

3

A bunch of new people coming through. I think someone wrote about us on HN or something. Prob makes sense to make some improvements to the Activity interface soon in terms of being a place to hang.

Prob makes sense to bring the Water journal back into the Activity interface in some kind of adjusted way in case people want to experiment with stuff like drinking water in addition to making things w their computers.

1

Starting to feel the need for search on mobile. Journals not created by me are becoming kind of like mini resources for me that I hop in and out of for reference. I was just doing yoga and remember an entry that someone else created about an effective back bend and I wanted to quickly check in on it after my session. Super easy to do on desktop not as easy on mobile (yet). But it’s cool that the use case is coming up for me. As people’s journals develop in maturity the ideas within them become more useful to me as a user.

2

It’d be nice to have some visual indicator when a user posts their first public entry ever or first entry in a new journal. I’d take some time out of my scrolling to comment and support. I think it’s a nice and kind thing to do. It also feels like a good way to enter this community; receive a flurry of comments wishing you well on the journey you’re about to embark on. And maybe make some friends😌

Re: Webs UI view. @internetvin you mentioned a spatial graph-like canvas. It reminds me of the Roam Graph. I don't really use the Roam Graph. What 2 things should I get out of the Roam Graph?

1. Information about each node (each node is a page so I should see the title, what's in it, imgs/vids, etc).
2. Information about the connection for each node (what other pages is this 1 page connnected to?)

Roam fails on both fronts. Check out the image.

Re: 1, they only give me the page title. The titles could be more useful if I was better at titling them but they don't give me a lot of info about what else is inside the page. I'm a little lost as to what I'm looking at.

Re: 2, the connections are not locally-clustered. Notice those blue lines? That's what happens when you click on a node to "illuminate" its connections. Its connections are all across the graph. I can't, in an instant, see what connections that node has. The connections provide context; what is this page linked to? Where has it been used? What are its siblings? etc etc.

The reason I bring this up is you mentioned something very similar to the Webs view. I really want to see FL actually make a "graph view" that makes sense and works. Because as awesome as Webs is, half of the value proposition is in that view (imo). The other half is in the freedom it affords you when organizing journals and entries. So the view is pretty important and I thought I'd share my (half-baked) thoughts on why the Roam Graph doesn't work for me. * It may work for other folks so obligatory caveat: experiences are my own.

1

Random thought: what’s the value proposition or incentive for users to create individual “meditation” (for example) journals or being a collaborator on a larger one? To me, they almost feel the same outside of if you want yours to be private. Also, seeing how many people contributed to mediating today, which is something I want to be doing every day, is a good push for me to learn from their experience + help me do it in days where it might be harder.

Its been interesting coming up with ways to blend the 2 types of journals so that users get the best of both. Allowing a view on a “mega journal” of just your own posts. Or being able to push posts from an individual journal to a mega journal (if I want to keep certain entires private).

Yesterday, I coded the entire day. I got out to run an errand but was behind the computer for about 80% of my day. Deep in flow. But doing that ate into every other journal so I got nothing else done. It almost felt like it was harder to stop. Do you have days like that? What do you do / what would you recommend?

Another thing I’m curious about is if the All tab was ordered based on the same way the profile re-orders itself based on what you posted to most recently. That way Profile and All tab are the same thing maybe…

1

Kinda wonder what it would be like, if the Home sidebar was Daily > Everything Else But Daily > Shadows.

Messing around w/ Daily again, and have 5 journals in there at the moment. But then in the All tab they’re there again, which was tripping me up a bit :)

1

Quick entry pop up → tried to post without a journal → selected a journal from drop down → posted. But the error message still stayed there. Wonder if it could fade away once I resolve the error.

2

What if the Futureland family had a group mediation session once a month / week.

Just came across this, not sure if it’s the right thing, kinda work from home corporate vibes, but the idea feels interesting.

https://insighttimer.com/teams

Could be run through group open journal. Like we did for the live Apple event back in the fall.

2

Wish there was an option to turn off and not display Activity tab in Futureland app. I find myself drawn there when I’m bored like the other scrolly social media apps, but I don’t want that. Love Activity on desktop, great way to see what’s happening in community.

3

Mobile app just started being funky for me. Stats is full white screen. Daily doesn’t reflect a name change I made of a journal in Daily or the activity a couple hours ago.

Would be cool if Futureland Meta was an option in my quick entry pop up. I’m not joining the journal, but it’s open. Maybe Futureland knows that I post here before and so it’s offered as option at bottom of the list.

I’m thinking about unbundling process into smaller daily journals. Seeing if I can fit little steps in to see what happens. For example instead of ‘Supplements’ I might unbundle that into journals called Espresso, L-Theanine, Fish oil, protein and so on to see what happens and what I learn. I forget to take certain supplements that aren’t well integrated into my routine.

Directionally I’m curious about this experiment too. What happens if you have journals that contain micro-reflections and logging and others that are larger more multi dimensional journals like one for specific long term projects

1

iOS app is feeling more stable and I’ve started using it a bit more for rapid entries into daily journals that don’t require me to review previous entries for context.

3

When you make the window small on Futureland desktop, then there is a little plus icon in bottom right, it loads the older new entry screen, instead of new pop up. Super minor of course, but thought I’d mention :)

It'd be really handy to backdate entries, for things like Early Sleeping/Early Rising. Sometimes I forgot, and want to record it so I can have more data on that, but I know if I create a new entry and write the time in, it'll throw the other stats off.

2

With the latest version of the iOS application, it seems that whenever I click the text field, it will crash. There isn’t a prompt to send crash logs.

Let me know if you guys need anything else.

1

I have almost 6000 entries on Futureland and I have been noticing that sometimes it's very slow to use. Sometimes needing reloads and stuff. Other times it can be zippy. I'm not sure if this has to do with my Mac or my internet connection but it's something I'm noticing a lot more often. It's cool watching videos about how you use FL because I can see where it is not performant for you or where things are a bit weird.

If Futureland is feeling slow for you or ever feels slow PLEASE tell us right away. This tool should be fast and never ever get in the way of your creative work. It will be a process to get there, but please share when you think you need to.

1

I think it would be useful if when navigating to an entry with a direct link that entry was highlighted in some way. Outlined or something so it’s clear the specific entry in focus through the link.

In Home view, if you enlarge an entry. Then use → keys, it doesn’t go through the Home view feed with all your journals mixed. The → keys bring you through the journal of the first post that you enlarged into.

Search keeps messing me up, forget that you have to select Journal or User first. Could it work as just universal search.

It’s cool that I can post in this journal, without joining. And that my entries don’t show up on my Home view since it’s not a journal I’m in. But the entries still show up on Stream. These difference between Home and Stream is still confusing for me.

3

Kinda wish the home view could collapse the side bar, so it becomes just my space. I’m still always going to the Stream page instead of using Home. More quiet there.

3

Sorry to keep coming here with bugs but the latest app version is crashing every time I try to add a journal entry from daily.

Having an issue where the app crashes anytime I go to one of my own projects from the profile view. For some reason the only project that works and I can view is this FL meta one. Sent a few crash reports so you have the details.

6

I never use the ‘grid’ feature and never have. I think if anything that view should be replaced with a display of all of your bookmarks. In that way it becomes almost like a resources section or a highlights section of each journal.

If Futureland ever has a 'residency program', we could identify important artists / work, support financially and ask them to store process publicly through research / experimentation so others can learn from and expand on it.

Having an issue where when I bring up the search bar when I'm typing an entry, the search bar freezes and becomes unresponsive. Escape doesn't work and have to refresh. See video attached for repro (freezes at 0:48). Not sure if anyone else is having this issue.

"To-do lists"

Something I've been thinking would be nice to have for a while is some way to plan and record progress through a structure a bit like a to-do list. I find there are times when I'd like to lay out a set of tasks for myself relating to a particular journal and then record when each task is complete. So maybe I'd make a post with the list of tasks, and then future posts that address progress made on one of the tasks would be the equivalent of checking off that task from the list.

Perhaps it's something like a hyperlink that's inserted on the "list of tasks" post to the "task completed" post when it's done. And maybe there's a hyperlink from the "task completed" post back to the original "list of tasks" post too so it's bidirectional. This sort of linking behavior could make the stream of posts on a particular journal a bit richer in that it could contain smaller, more focused endeavors that contribute to the overall goal of the project, but are themselves a bit more closely connected. It might create a more dynamic, non linear view to progress where rather than time being the primary axis, links between related tasks or posts create another way to navigate that focuses more on how efforts relate to each other, somewhat independently of time.

Have seen something like this emerge naturally in different ways from @lucas ' Deep Work posts and @internetvin 's recent Futureland posts

Since we introduced in line entries I find myself using the web version of FL more on my phone than the iOS version, since I can’t publish inline on iOS yet. I still use iOS for ‘tracker’ type journals like when I drink a glass of water.

Maybe there’s an ‘onboarding’ button or something that you can push to find some time to hang with us, talk about your process, these tools and general thoughts related to multidisciplinary experimentation, routines and process.

1

I uploaded this as a reference for @internetvin's entry about Journal Downloads.

This is the current file/folder structure I came up with when downloading a journal as ZIP.
The last modified date is the time the user created the entry.
The files are put into folders by date.
Every file is named like <entry ID> by <author>
This is useful to identify which files belong together. For example a markdown + jpg. Or markdown + jpg + mp3.
Every file gets downloaded as original.

1

Maybe at some point in the future it makes sense for anyone to be able to define their own keyboard shortcuts in a way. Especially for like tracker based journals. Being able to publish to them in a specific way with just a keyboard shortcut. Like a combination of keys for me to publish to pomodoros or a combination of keys for me to publish to water. It would be tight if after you do it there's a little cool text based notification on the interface that says 'successfully published to x'.

Abstract thoughts; I wonder if it would ever make sense to hear people talking (live) about something as you are visiting a journal. Like you would be able to see on a journal that a discussion is happening or something or there are people in the space with you and if you click something you would be able to hear the discussions or something. Like the thoughts of the people working on the thing you are viewing as you scroll through the various artifacts from the process that have been shared. I'm thinking a lot about audio lately and its ability to communicate emotions and bring you into a conceptual space often more quickly and effectively other mediums. Perhaps there's something powerful that happens when you can supply your own visuals and concepts or something.

Before I forget, it would be cool if on Daily you could trigger the 'emoji picker' in some way by long pressing the Journal's circle. This might make it much easier to publish to these tracker based journals.

Bottom of page is cut off until you scroll down some, that’s the “New Entry, Show Home, New Journal, etc”. Using an iPad Pro 10.5.

New UI is really great and information dense so far. Feels very capable and like I don’t need as many navigations to get context & create a post based on that.

3

Bug report: audio media upload with the new modal dialog allows me to "add cover", but once it has published and processed, the journal does not display the cover art. Has happened both yesterday and this morning with the new upload widget.

2

kinda wishing there was a global chat sidebar on futureland.
just wanted to say you've made a huge chunk of improvements this year @lucas @internetvin. happy to see everything come together 💖

1

Just went to make a post with the new journal post modal and encountered a problem with overflow. The modal doesn’t have scroll capability so long posts aren’t possible to publish.

Figured out I could use the new inline mode, so that’s hunky dory.

Might make sense to put the ‘Write a comment’ input on the bottom of full screen entries instead of the top.

Would be very useful if comments could include videos, images and especially audio. Sometimes someone might ask me about something on one of my entries it’s much more fluid to be able to answer through speaking than having to draft a response. Through audio it feels like something I can do in process instead of breaking process - breaking flow.

2

Figuring out how Futureland works best for me! Very fun process. Thought I’d share these reflections.

Feel like I would normally iMessage this to @internetvin, but maybe better to share here in case it’s of value to anyone else, and to start to have even more conversations in the open 💚

— Left the Water journal, think posting multiple times througout the day feels like too much for me. Just lots of picking up my phone. Have bright green post-it note at my desk to drink water, and water bottle always around so those two things work. Keep up all the great work all the Water journal crew. The 🐠 is up for adoptions too, since I won’t be using, hehe

— Still interested in Daily, shifting toward practices that happen once a day instead of multiple times througout day, trying to focus on Stretching and Vitamins now.

— On my profile, I’m pretty excited started do little [Tags] in front of the description for each of the Journals. Feel so much more at ease now with this, hard to describe, but it’s like each of the journal is it’s own type and that feels good to know. At the moment have Weekly, Daily, On-Going Project, and Done.

— For now the tags are grouped together. Can’t fully figure out how the order algorithm for Profile works, but I think them grouped together is maybe one of the reasons I feel at “ease”.

— Left Meta journal since it was bugging me on my profile, I guess I’d prefer if the profile was all my personal space, or ideally I’d like to show that I contribute to Meta journal, but it’d be in it’s own “Community Journal” section maybe.

— I’m now Shadowing Meta journal to keep up to date. And the plan is to re-join Meta whenever have something to post. Post the thing. And then leave Meta Journal again. Kinda silly, but whatever, LOL

1

This is just a test 🌼 Left the Meta journal, but it still shows up when I press “N” to do a new post.

There’s Daily, but what about Weekly. I’ve thinking of starting a journal that I’d like to do on a weekly cadence. 52 weeks a year adds up, could be cool to streak that way too.

It might be cool if journals showed you how many entries you've published in them today. Or perhaps on collaborative journals you could see how many total entries per user have been published into them.

Something that might be cool is letting users define custom sound fx for journals they add to their Daily. The sound can be played every time you publish to that journal. This in interesting to think about in terms of 'open' journals, perhaps the creators of those journals can define the sounds and it becomes part of how open journals are curated / customized.

New dream feature, would be the ability to have private posts, but in public journals. I’ve been finding that there’s some things I want to post that are a bit more personal, but they don’t warrant like their own fully private journal since they’re under the theme of an existing public journal. 🕵️‍♀️

Think it was @christian who was saying they just press N shorcut most times to start a new post. Started doing this more now.

With multiple journals, could be cool if after you press N, the “Where” field was highlighted and you could ⬇️ down keys and then Enter to select the journal without leaving the keybaord to use the mouse to select where. After you hit Enter, your cursor is then flashing in the journal entry field.

3

Using Daily for things like water on desktop is kinda a pain. I’ve tried to do it a couple times, but just stop and pick up my phone. But I don’t want to be on my phone really.

Think it’s mainly cause on the phone it has the emoji keyboard with Frequently used so easily accesible!

3

Trying this app, it’s like the 🍅 timer concept, but builds a cute little forest over time, ha.

What’s cool about the widget is that it’s tappable, so each of the Work + Reading sessions open the app and start the timer.

Could be nice for FL Daily widget, to remove one tap and have it open the specific journal up from the widget.

Just started using Daily this week for water and stretching. So far so good! Was thinking about starting one for a more design / work related project that would be Daily, but like to change pace on the weekend a bit. Would be cool if you can do Daily, but weekend mode, so you can keep the streak going, M-F.

Wonder if there’s a way, or if it would be nice to see bookmarks in the grid journal view. So it’s a bit more visual, and you can see like a dozen bookmarks on the screen at once in context together. Like seeing all your big milestones.

2

On mobile safari on an iOS 13 iPhone X, I can’t get to the bottom buttons like add journal (or even access the journals on the very bottom). Also if you notice I stop scrolling, thats because the page becomes unresponsive for some reason. I’m not sure when it started but has been like this at least a few weeks.

Is there maybe some prefetching that’s chewing up cycles while on the home page?

1

One thing that I really like using that not a lot of people know about is on private journals you can generate temporary public links to any specific entry. If you share this link with someone they will be taken to a presentation of only that entry with no indication of anything else including what journal the entry is from. I use this a lot when I want to collect feedback on something I have written in a private journal or if I just want to share a personal moment with a friend.

3

In general I think I like to keep comments off the timeline (C on your keyboard to hide / show them). I prefer the clean look of the empty timeline with just bookmarks and being able to see the date clearly as I use it.

Another idea, (maybe) it would be cool if on tracker based journals where we are using emojis, FL automatically bundled them as you publish entries. So for water I could just drop a 🌊 and if it’s my second glass (entry) to that journal today FL will automatically publish 🌊🌊.

This could be a cool little tracker template or tracker feature or something.

1

Link previews need to be tightened up. It would be cool if there was a way to disable them when I do not want them to be displayed. I wonder if we need link previews at all? Perhaps allowing for disabling is enough?

4

After seeing @thedominica 's last meta post and @internetvin 's musings on staying offline/syncing I was reminded of this article about data ownership. Especially with FL being so tied to everyone's processes, a model where journal entries sync from your local filesystem could be kind of interesting (so each entry is just a .md file on my hard drive.) Maybe something to think about for the desktop version of FL.

1

Something I'm really excited for is being able to write to FL outside of the web app and the mobile app. For example, being able to quickly use the "Futureland CLI" inside my terminal to write to my code journal as I'm coding. Almost like how a dev uses the Git CLI to commit work to GH.

Another thing I've been thinking about is programmatic triggers; if I spent more than 30 minutes (in one go) on a specific site (like Roam where I do all my writing), automatically write to my writing journal with what I've written. I'd like some control over what I write to my journals so maybe it could HTML prompt me to write something. I envision this being a Chrome extension.

I don't think these tools have to (or should be) built by Lucas/Vin. If there's an API, I'd be more than happy to build these tools and I think there's a good chance others in the community would be down. It could even be a journal in of itself!!

Got worried for a second I was deleting journals, on mobile app, Home page, wanted to remove them there to display "daily" ones in widget, but felt like I was deleting the whole journal, instead of maybe like "remove".

1

Another use case for search, and I know there's a command that I can't think of now, but is if you want to drink more water, you can find out if there is already a water journal to join.

4

Default tab for the home sidebar could be nice. Thinking about starting to try Daily on iPhone widget, so in that case maybe I’d rather start on “All” when coming to Futureland on desktop.

@internetvin mentioned that he never goes to his journal from his Profile, and I was like “wait how do you get to them then?”, forgot there was the “All” tab, ha

1

One thing that I've noticed is, with Shadowing, is that the number in the circle in the sidebar gives me a similar anxiety that like an Unread message count would in your email. I feel like I have to get that number to 0, it's an old pattern that's stuck with me at the moment.

Maybe no number there at the top. Or the option to switch off displaying the total number, and even the individual numbers for the journal.

There's some journals that I want to shadow, but like check weekly or even monthly, but the numbers make me feel like I gotta check em' more frequently.

2

An idea that comes up often for @lucas and I is enabling the publishing of one entry to multiple journals. There’s lots of conceptual things to think through before we could make that happen. But it’s definitely something that comes up every few weeks in between sprints.

2

Just referencing @ethan's note here:

- We need to be able to archive / hide journals.

- Collaborative journals need to be displayed differently. Definitely makes sense that users would not want Futureland Meta on their journals but would definitely want the ability to participate in shaping the tool through the journal

- Potentially killing new journal button

- custom positioning of journals on profile

- in line posting on the Stream (this is a really good idea. We really need to nail the inline publishing mechanics over time. I think it's one of the most important parts of Futureland).

This caught my eye and made me stop for a second, Futureland logo is kinda saying the same thing as Futureland+ with the plus sign in the logo, but they’re different things. One is just FL, and the other is the upgraded paid version 😜

Wondering how Futureland+ will be surfaced more in the future? Right now feels kinda buried in Settings, but you don’t want to always be trying to get people to upgrade.

2

After returning to futureland from completing the stripe checkout page, then pressing escape on the thank you page, I get sent back to stripe with an expired link.

1

Would be cool if there was a keyboard shortcut to hide/show bookmarks/comments on the timeline. For those that don't know you can do that via the '…' menu on the side bar of every journal.

On journals like Water or Pomodoros, it is way more fun collecting emojis as time goes on vs. just dropping a single one. For example at 1 glass of water it's 🌊 and at 2 glasses it's 🌊🌊. It's cool to see them growing as the day goes on. It feels like you are collecting stuff lol. And then the next day it resets again.

Each day, I find myself wanting to disconnect from my phone more. The only thing that keeps me from getting rid of it is Futureland for iOS. This tool is such a big (and useful) part of my life and creative process now. It would be great if there was some way to use Futureland offline, to publish to all of my journals throughout the day and then have it synchronize later once the device had an internet connection.

It would also be great if Futureland was available on a different limited device. Something with only a phone, text and Futureland. I'm not sure how sms updates would work but that could be interesting too, if I could publish to a journal via sms on a dumb phone.

The thing I think about a lot is just being able to oscillate from hyper connected general computers to minimally connected narrow computers. I want the ability to be able to disconnect from these devices without losing access to my journals.

Sometimes I find when I make the subject of a journal very specific, like a narrow activity I want to do regularly and reflect on, it ends up yielding more value or transformation than I expect from journals with a wider focus.

Sometimes if I am not making enough progress in a specific journal it could be because the focus of the journal is too broad and it might be worth running an experiment to create a new one that brings the whole thing down into a very specific and narrow thing that I start doing a lot and just seeing what happens.

1

It would be cool to have Siri commands on Futureland for iOS. For example I want to be able say “Hey Siri, make an entry in Early Sleeping that says down.”

3

Thinking that the direct link in the email footer, to reply when you get a email notification for new comment, that could go to the full screen version so you're in commenting mode to write something back.

2

When in full screen / discussion mode, could be cool if you can use the arrow keys to move through the rest of the posts in that journal.

1

When listening to an audio post, and then click on the comments icon to go full screen. Wanted to keep listening, and take a peek at the comments at the same time. But took me a second to realize it re-started the audio clip from the start.

1

Notification idea. For practically everything else I try to stay current on (hacker news, blogs, even some twitter feeds, etc.), I rely on RSS. (annoyingly can't use it for a Facebook Group I need to monitor). Would be really nice to be able to subscribe to any Futureland journal's top-level posts via RSS. I find that as things are now, I forget about this Meta journal for days (I think it's been over a week since I thought to see what was going on here…)

I suppose that's anathema to someone trying to build a platform and keep users "on the platform", but it would be a god send for someone like me whose daily "what's new and what should I look at" process revolves around my RSS reader.

1

It would be cool if you could trigger quick search even if you are viewing a full screen entry. Right now it kind of gets triggered behind it. So when you exit out of a full screen entry, you see quick search. A bug.

We don't need to show keyboard shortcuts related to 'Show Home' or 'New Journal' when a new entry is being composed as they cannot be trigged unless you click out of the text area.

If Futureland does have some kind of buddy system for collaboration, hanging out and accountability, a good spot to manifest it might be on Daily.

It would be useful to be able to toggle comments or bookmarks on and off on a journal's timeline so that you can interact with it in different ways. Sometimes I want to turn off all of the comments to just use the timeline to navigate across time.

A thought I had was putting a button in my kitchen that's connected to a Raspberry Pi. And every time I drink a glass of water I can just push the button and it publishes to the Water journal for me.

I find myself liking my iPhone less each day. I just want to use it as a secondary device. I want a phone that can only make calls, receive texts, has long battery life and supports FL in single player.

Searching public journals feels really cool. When you do it, I find it triggers a moment where this place really starts to feel like a network of divergent journals from all over the world.

3

I want the composition of new entries to be in line on a journal. Because what you do on Futureland is a 'kind of' journaling, I find it's really helpful to compose new entries on the same surface where you see previous entries. I think this helps your previous entries inform the creation of your current ones. I want the option to jump into a full screen composition window but I do not think it should be the default.

This is my favourite journal on Futureland mostly because there's a more equal surface to talk about what we are working on. Sometimes I wonder if on a single journal you should be able to switch between states. A state where everyone can discuss the journal and build on the ideas and another state where only certain people are sharing things like our Futureland journal where we share process. Maybe it should all be on the same surface and you can switch its state. Something I think about these days.

2

As more in depth discussions start happening on entries, we need to improve the interface to make it easier for all us to have and navigate those discussions.

When longer comment threads develop on an entry it becomes more difficult to kind of keep up with it visually. Right now I scroll down to the comment and then compose the comment in a separate text editor window and then paste it in to Futureland's input. If I try to use Futureland's comment input to write a comment on a longer thread I have to keep scrolling down and then scrolling back up! <3

1

Just noticed that comments don't have markdown support. It might be nice to have italics/bold, code, and hypertext, even if not headings and lists.

Would be neat if there was a way to search through journal entries with some kind of inline search on a journal. In my longer journals it is very difficult to find things and I cannot rely on bookmarks for this.

5

It would be cool if there was a way to do a global search on journals through quick search (CMD+/) similarly to how you search through users.

2

Still getting a bit hung up on which button to press for the sidebar, since there are now two sidebars. Do love that the Daily - All - Shadows one is accessible everywhere now. Wonder if the sidebar on Journals really needs to be collapsable…

Sometimes I wish I could comment on the creation of new journals. I just saw @emu created this new journal, mush.emu.media and as soon as I read the description I immediately shadowed (lol), "multi-user shared hallucination"

We sent out our weekly email newsletter this week, if any ideas or insights come to mind please them here or send me a reply to that email! <3

2

The url I enter to attach to my journal is just added to the end of the link to my journal itself rather than being a standalone link. Hopefully this screen recording helps a bit more @lucas @internetvin

1

not exactly a bug, but "usability complaint". I tried to upload earlier this morning, but my network was wonky (no route to the internet). I got a popup that my submission was overdue for my streak and did I want to have it apply to yesterday. I said Yesterday. But even then when I push Publish, the "you missed your streak" popup comes up. Only after composing a "bug report" to meta did I notice a small red "Network error" message in the lower right of the screen. PLEASE don't hide error messages like this. Center them and make them impossible to miss.

7

Quick idea, what if the future Futureland desktop app had a little menu bar icon or shortcut that allowed you to capture a screenshot and then it auto-uploads.

Right now I take screenshot, then find on Desktop, drag into Futureland. This is an example from another program called Eagle which has a little screenshot menu bar feature.

2

Bug report. There are a couple here as far as I can tell.

1. This happens when I view the entry by itself with the comments on the side. When I press "play" on the audio track, the page becomes unresponsive and can't be interacted with; the only way to stop it is to close the tab. Firefox gives the warning pictured and Safari just lets the page stay unresponsive. In Safari sometimes the music continues playing even after the page has been closed. Have not tried Chrome.
2. When I press "play" in the condensed view on the journal feed, the audio plays, but then when I open the entry (to the view with the comments on the side) the audio starts playing again over the already playing audio.

Hope it's cool to share here, but a kind of interesting thing I have noticed since pausing my interface project is that my brain feels different or something when I am not in a continual state of output. For me continual creation is about creating mental environment that's conducive of things connecting together in interesting ways. I think the thing that I found yielded the best mental environment for creativity was when I was making music every day from 2017-2018. Writing code every day was interesting as well but the logical nature of it restricted my mind from wandering in a way (if that makes sense). I really enjoy the creative states I achieve from just making a high volume of things at a very high velocity. That's another thing I loved about making music every day; the speed at which it trains you to use your MacBook Pro. Like my hands started to move differently on the keyboard and trackpad. After hundreds of tracks, you know all of the keyboard shortcuts in whatever application you're using. There's triggers that get you into flow state immediately. Whether it's the app's loading screen or the first sound you hear through your headphones and then before you know it BAM you're in some abyss with no sense of time. You see software developers often in this state as well. I find you can always kind of tell when someone who is using a computer is an artist just by observing the way their hands move across the computer's inputs. There's always some weird quirk to it from tons of repeated use.

Idea - I love the Futureland logo and the fact that it's taken from the space between the letters R + E in the wordmark. I think this could make a really cool animation when onboarding or first landing on the site. Maybe the wordmark separates thru the middle and then opens into the newer video onboarding concept you've been playing with @internetvin. Maybe the shape of the cross logo could be used as "TV screens" where different video journals are played or animated within the outline of the cross. This could be a nice visual representation of entering spaces/journals. Just some late-night thoughts…

Sorry for the delay in my replies here! I've been under the weather, starting to get some strength back. Thanks for sharing so far!

Im about to start a meditation journal and it was brought to my attention that @internetvin already has a collaborative meditation journal. I was about to join, but I noticed that collaborative journals show ALL posts on each person’s journal on their page. While I like the idea of collectively sharing and contributing to one journal, this is the downside I noticed, and it deterred me from joining (I’m going to start my own meditation journal instead). I just thought I’d share my thoughts - If there was a way to be part of a collective journal, but selectively share only your own outputs one your page that would be cool!

6

Bug report: I got email notifications for "comments" in this journal, but I didnt get a notification for the new top-level post (suggesting a Zoom meeting). Oddly I got notifications for comments to that posting though.

3

Any interest in a FL Zoom meetup? Would love to meet y'all (online ofc) and have some interesting convos :)
