Repairing instead of throwing away and borrowing instead of buying

More eco-friendly living

Some items are only needed in everyday life for a limited period of time or for a specific occasion. So why should you let something gather dust in the closet or basement while others can put it to good use? And conversely, you might be happy to borrow something cheaply instead of owning it. The platform www.shareitt.com offers just that and is a digital marketplace for second-hand items.

My thread about the 3 layers of evidence started drifting away from the intended topic, but with great comments.

@Peter Discussion about Pandoc Scholar is probably for another thread (and the website has more insight than I have). I just gave it as an example that there are existing ways to use Qualified Links, i.e. links that indicate their relationship type. For example, here's a wiki-style link that includes a relationship qualifier (instead of "OTHER-NOTE", insert your usual link ID format):

In this example, "refutes" indicates that the thought in the current note refutes/rejects the thought outlined in that other note (which has the ID "OTHER-NOTE"). Others have already thought up an entire set of qualifying properties (see CiTO properties) which could be used. If more software starts to support qualified links (aka "semantic citations" or however you call them) like this, this would open up entire new possibilities.

> The only relation within a boundary calculus is that of Containment, a minimal conceptual basis consisting of one binary relation. The contains relation is quite general. When expressed within logic, containment can be interpreted as implies. When expressed as a network, containment is directly-connected-to. When expressed as a set, it’s called is-a-member. When expressed as a number, it is successor. When expressed as a map, it’s shares-a-common-border. Within the context of a pile of blocks, contains becomes supported-by. When seen as a family relationship, it is parent-of. When described as an abstract mathematical structure, it is a rooted tree. All of these metaphors share a collection of common characteristics that are concretized by the properties of physical containers. The fundamental concept underlying containment is Distinction: a container distinguishes inside from outside.
