Stock and Flow

The concept of Stock and Flow is an economic concept. It was adapted for media by writer [[Robin Sloan]]. First introduced to me in March of 2022 during the [[2022 Reading Challenge]] while reading Show Your Work!.


  • Flow is the daily updates
  • The reminder to the world that you exist
  • Akin to a public notebook, social media is where you think publicly about topics


  • Stock is how people discover you; it is discoverable content
  • It is durable. It lasts for months or years.
  • By writing more flow, you discover patterns in your writing
  • Stock = collected, organized, and/or expanded-upon Flow
