First tweak to MyHub.ai, more to come (newsletter)

In this edition: a first tweak to the default navigation phrase, a look ahead to the next changes, and some of the things I've recently read (and written) influencing my ideas for MyHub.ai as I prepare a chapter of an upcoming book on Personal Knowledge Management.

A can even comment on it f…
