The stages of living

1. I enjoy playing
2. I want to play where I fit in
3. I want to fit in where I can make money
4. I want my making money to mean something
5. I will choose meaning over money
6. I seek meaning in what I enjoy
7. I enjoy playing

imposter syndrome 

I have to say, when I feel that, I just don’t visit merveilles. But I like that —when I’m ready— I can come back to this cool corner of the web and be inspired by you all. Thank you. :merveilles:

imposter syndrome 

However, having a lot of creative people creating A LOT of cool stuff A LOT of the time can kick your imposter syndrome and/or make you feel like you SHOULD be doing more. Is it just me? I love to see you folks coding and painting and stuff but deep down I feel that pressure.

I’m reading Essentialism and I found one of the reasons I stopped coming to merveilles so often. This is an amazing community full of wonderful people, and a source of inspiration of all kinds. I consider myself lucky to be a part of it and contribute to it.

@dfr Been following them for a few months now. they are more design than tech. There is a small community that tune into their laid-back youtube streams and they talk about alternative living habits and general stuff. They're transparent about design vs engineering, and are transparent on their business model on the weekly streams. They've recognized the community that supports their vision is more important than the vision itself. The ARK package is usually what hooks people in.

I have absolutely no clue of what this really is, but the æsthetics ??

“This file is Good Code. […] It was written by a single person, and never touched by another. It reads like poetry written by someone over thirty.

Every programmer starts out writing some perfect little snowflake like this. Then they’re told on Friday they need to have six hundred snowflakes written by Tuesday”

LMAO this hits close to home

"Every programmer occasionally, when nobody’s home, turns off the lights, pours a glass of scotch, puts on some light German electronica, and opens up a file on their computer."

Tech people: "We can fight capitalism, and get a more humane society."

Also tech people: "Well, Chromium won, let's forget Firefox, we can't take the web back, let's move to something else."

Everybody always asks, "What's the wifi?" but never, "How's the wifi?"

i.e. tell me the time (simplest shit there is), tell me next appointment or so, show me the weather if it’s around the time when I walk my dog, or some stats... it’s just endless.

I’m thinking about coding some automations and use it as a dashboard/indicator. It would be nice to have some sort of calm-tech device that could contextually tell me stuff without me actively querying it. Idk.

Someone was selling a 3.5 LCD touchscreen for the :rpi: and I got it. It’s soo cute!

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
