It's been quite a while since I wrote a longer article for my collection here, as my energies have been so focused on Microsoft-related work the past few years. (Which reminds me that I should post some of that work, too!).
Be that as it may, I just posted this one:
A Morning's Mnemonic Exercise – During a morning walk, I had a long stream of distinct thoughts and ideas that I wanted to remember when I got back home. Because I don't like to exercise while carrying a phone, voice recorder, or notepad, I utilized mnemonic techniques to create very short mnemonic, H3M2 SPIES, with which I was able to remember a series of distinct keywords: history, hieroglyphs, house, mnemonics, meditation, seclusion, projection, identity expansion, and scheduling. Those keywords, in turn, helped me remember the distinct thoughts that I wanted to remember. I found this process of creating a heavily-encoded term that contained a series of keywords that were themselves an encoding of my thoughts. In this article I share the whole thinking process that occurred that morning.
