… right from the start, from the time someone came up with the word ‘autism’, the condition has been judged from the outside, by its appearances, and not from the inside according to how it is experienced.

My macOS Keyboard Flow

This lists some of the hotkeys and applications that constitute my core productivity flow on macOS.

My workflow is very plain text and Markdown heavy.

I’m a text and information worker, and these are some of my tools.

Legend:

HyperKarabiner Elements maps my Caps Lock key to Cmd+Ctl+Opt+Shift. This serves as my Hyper key. It also serves as an escape key when pressed and released (as opposed to using it as a modifier in a chord with other keys). This dual behavior is very useful. Launching with a Hyper key chord and then dismissing with the Hyper key is nice flow. If you have an app or miniwindow that doesn’t dismiss when it’s hotkey is pressed again, try putting it on a dual behavior Hyper key so you don’t have to reach for Escape or Cmd+w.

<KM> – This indicates the keybinding is handled by Keyboard Maestro, a favorite workflow automation tool.
