Announcing Emacs online Asia-Pacific (APAC) meetup, Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 1400 IST with Jitsi and #emacs on DM if interested to give a talk or demo!

Just found that #OrgMode let you attach files to an outline node and then let you refer to these attachments with links. And you can attach multiple files on one outline.

C-c C-a a: Attach a file to the current outline
C-c C-a o: Open file attached to the current outline

When you put a link, start it's URL with "attachment:" and #Emacs will ask you wich attachment you want to link to.

When you attach a file, it is copied inside a data/ folder.

Now, twenty years later, all the address books have been stolen. Everyone has all the data. Identifying the right people (or spamming everyone) is easy and cheap.

Which makes the point even more urgent than ever: Without trust and connection, access to data is worthless.
