Not exactly a project, but I was thinking about the way I use tldraw.com as an infinite single notepad - not starting new files, just gradually moving to a new part of the canvas as I need to. And as I was thinking I thought it'd be amusing to show off my canvas. This is about a year's worth of intermittent diagramming. I still use pen and paper a lot, and I don't yet know what the trigger is for me to get on tldraw instead of reaching for my notebook.

nice glad you like it. this is something we discussed loads as a team last year while prototyping a way to save and load boards.
i personally don't like keeping everything on one board because it's too easy for me to Cmd+A, Backspace, and lose everything. i wanted a big fat juicy blue button that said "new board".
but it does seem that a lot of people like to do your approach. so we tried different ways to support that too. we called it the "Home" board or "Scratchpad".
there was a slight tension between these two approaches. "how do we support both approaches as first-class?"
i hope we can revisit it one day
