After creating my digital garden, I had the idea of dedicating a sub-section for books, similar to what Maggie Appleton has done on her personal website. At the same time, I was introduced to the concepts of the Lindy Effect and Lindy Libraries from the Coding Career Circle. The Lindy Effect is the idea that the future life expectancy of non-perishable things like books, technologies and ideas is proportional to their current age. A Lindy Library, as Swyx puts it, is an annex of content that stood the test of time.
Building a Lindy Library sounds awesome, but that isn't my goal. The objective of my public library is to share my thoughts and notes on a curated list of books that I find insightful and have a lasting impact on how I see and view things. I want to encourage more conversations and discussions by making it public. In other words, this library that I am building is a collection of books that resonated with me.
The term, Resonance Library, is an amalgamation of "Lindy Library" and "Resonance Calendar". A Resonance Calendar is how Ali Abdaal manages and reflects on all the content he consumes that resonated with him.
