Hi Lynn, this is Jessie! Gosh your recommendation is always inspiring and right in time, i followed your link to semantic scholar, and i came across one article "[Acceptability Judgements via Examining the Topology of Attention Maps](https://www.semanticscholar.org/reader/4f05bb8ef87b7e723f72f19af1d8dab6e54291de?experiments=&features=reader_skimming%3Atrue)" that has somewhat relationship with my idea: [Efforts toward effort-less language acquisition](https://mirror.xyz/0x65a0Af703047dfDd270361659d02f4f0E8547202/YmbixVzwGJ0l46X6PDtVBbYY64Jd-SfRSD8usBZUzno)

The intention behind is my long time wish to build Word block, a block-based note taking tool with blockchain(i knew this intro is too thin🥲): https://mirror.xyz/conaw.eth/hBj9GSkYzLpQM524VBVhjO8C5-KQFw9UmfrYkerlvZE

i m very interested in language in the written manner--words,text, during the attention-computing activities reading and writing. So i want to build a tool to help explore this while connecting people or thoughts(an extension of a man)

Now i m kinda confused where my idea is going(lol always like this), so I want to write you a message to ask your thoughts about it , because you are like always taking my mind!! (have to shout out! i love your newsletter)

Buon anno🥠! look forward to hearing from you!

My mom, who grew up in Austria, has some interesting stories of Krampus in her childhood. The fear that cultures use to try to keep kids straight. Another great edition Lynn!
