TLDR: These are personal notes on org-noter, a package I've recently discovered for writing Org notes that are kept in sync with documents such as pdf, Epub and Word. It's a useful tool for tracking research papers and writing comments on textbooks.


That's why I recommend that students start a blog. Even if no one else reads it, start one. You don't even have to write about your research. Practicing the act of writing is all that matters. – Matt Might

My name is Daniel, and I'm a graduate student currently located in the Netherlands. I play with functional brain images for a living, but in my spare time my activities range amongst playing with exoteric text editors, going to my friendly neighbourhood arthouse cinema, going for walks in the forest, playing popular Brazilian music on the guitar and learning new languages.

If you are curious of what I'm doing, or would like to discuss a topic we might both be interested in, or even if you'd just like to give me some feedback on this blog, please reach out to @dani@scholar.social .

As a side note, the views expressed here are mine and may not reflect yours, those of my employer, or those from the people I collaborate with.

This is a work-in-progress post. Expect updates.

TLDR: I started using Emacs about 3 years ago. I couldn't be more grateful to have seen the light, and to have been rescued from the darkness of Windoze, Goggle and/or friends. After enlightenment, I've taken upon myself the task of customising an environment to write my PhD thesis with Org Mode.
