Things I Find Useful

I was going to call this page “Tools I Like”, and start with a formal definition of tool. Then I looked up what that definition is, at least according to Wikipedia (emphasis mine):

A tool is an object of whatever relatively simple construction is necessary for its user to hold and operate easily to perform a simple task (like moving, lifting, breaking, holding, turning, bending) not as effectively performed or not possible, safe, or desirable to perform using a bodily member alone.

While one may apply the term tool loosely to many things that are means to an end (e.g., a fork), strictly speaking an object is a tool only if, besides being constructed to be held, it is also made of a material that allows its user to apply to it various degrees of force.

-Excerpt from Wikipedia’s Tool page

So, instead I decided to call this page “Things I Find Useful”. Some of those things might actually be tools, but a lot of them might be…let’s call them tool-adjacent.

Whenever I get around to writing about something I find useful, I’ll add it to this page as well.
