For those crazy enough to try:
Don't build a workstation, build an ecosystem.
Scope aggressively and specialize. Learn to say no. Less is more.
GUIs are a black hole of productivity, don't sucked into them.
Make sure offline rendering happens on day one.
Do NOT multi-thread the audio rendering component.
Choose standards you intend to support very, very carefully.

Make sure everything can work headless or without a GUI.
Emphasize extendability. When in doubt, just build a canvas.
Manage your dependencies. Don't go crazy with packages.

Today's input. If I had only a grain of Miyazaki's focus and determination.
