Monocle is my universal, personal search engine. It can query across tens of thousands of documents from my blog posts, journal entries, notes, Tweets, contacts, and more to act as my extended memory spanning my entire life. Monocle is designed with a focus on speed, privacy, and hackability. It’s built to be very specific to the particulars of my personal workflow around data, so probably won’t work for anyone else.
I’m logging this for your inspiration, not because you should download it and give it a try. I just love the idea of outsourcing large swaths of your memory to a personal search engine. Also it’s built with Ink (a programming language) and Torus (a UI framework), both of which are the author’s creations.
