Thinking Out Loud
Getting FeedBack from others is a good thing for your sense-making: Digital Garden
And even when you don't get FeedBack, packaging your thoughts as if to solicit feedback will help you hone those thoughts. (Rubber Ducking)
- Don't think of "packaging" as in "to create a final/polished 'product'", but rather more like "make complete sentences and thoughts reflecting your mental state in the moment".
See Webs Of Thinkers And Thoughts for more detail and broader context.
In Writer's Workshops & the Work of Making Things, Richard P Gabriel describes different collaborative exercises for traditionally individual activities, such as workshops, master classes, open source, and pair programming. (note those are social warrens, not wide-public)
When you're actually doing things, keep working in public.
