my blog writing process is to start with just a stream of consciousness captured in org-mode and then over the course of days or months, rebuild in to a narrative. rewrite, expand, investigate, until a coherent thing comes out, spend five hours with a wrench in my static site generator trying to get it to actually publish and syndicate

MSP collecting data towards education ( and working towards solutions at hood canal.

Great time. LLTK & Jacques White

Solutions in plan and flight:
Reintroducing more diversity to hatchery programs, spreading release, etc, to keep harbor seals from having a feast.
Rebuilding forage fish habitats and populations (herring etc)
Redesign lock filling chambers to not be a "salmon blender" at cedar river, rebuild fish passages and ladders. Restoring shore lines. Hood Canal floating bridge is A Problem.
Marine Survival Project with Paul Allen's philanthropy org Vulcan.

- increased seal predation. LLTK partners tagging fish with RFID and tie that to seals with sensor "beanies" to track seal

Harbor seals eating nearly 8x as many chinook in Strait of Georgia as in 1970! Double resident killer whales and 6x fishing rates!
Harbor seals are consuming smaller fish, looking at biomass numbers hides raw counts.

- contaminants from estimating sediments, a big driver is flame retardants.
- fish leaving estuaries earlier, the more developed the rivers the fewer survive from the early batch. Having them stay longer is not better when the river is a super fund site like the Duwamush
- zooplankton diets have changed from largely fish remains to crab larvae amphipods, etc

Salmon used to be diverse, more plentiful and much larger. Salmon runs are important to the ecosystem and the environment and the economy bringing oceanic resources up in to inland and mountain watersheds.

Fishing has declined but numbers have not recovered!

Learning about salmon recovery over lunch at work today. Local group called Long Live the Kings

Things also get wacky and maybe unbearable in the stage where my document and thought hierarchy is in a web tool that may not play well with emacs.
Do I strip Emacs to a bare programming environment and exwm and finishing bending Firefox to my will or switch to qutebrowser and enable chromium dominence? This is why I want embeddable gecko.
Do I build an output connector to sync a directory of org mode files with CAS?
build two parallel UIs, one in clojurescript and one in emacs?
