Very loving Elm right now. Its very relaxing. Maybe I need to start looking harder at Gleam.

Me: "I wish everything had a URL."
*the monkey paw curls a single finger; a distant someone invents Electron*

Maybe all I’ve needed is a insanely strict type system to guide me to do things right.

On one hand the client I am working for is doing capital I Important work for the world.

On the other hand the culture is in a weird spot and I want to grab everyone by the shoulders and remind them "The work you are doing is incredibly important! Have you forgotten that?!"

@neauoire I feel like once enfer is "ready" one could make a really sick orca/enfer, shadertoy/jsfiddle style website for sharing music

When you get into a rhythm being more asynchronous its really jarring and obvious how inefficient meetings/chats are

With a new client that *loves* meetings. It's a bummer because they pay well and on time and the problem they are fixing is really important.

It has been a very hard transition for me, especially since I'm building my remote business to be more async and using basecamp vs chat.

if someone could take this case and jam a raspberry pi into it please and thank you.

Absurdism ideas all over, world building literally. Camus would love this game though he might be a little overwhelmed by the absurdities of Kojima’s story telling.

Really enjoying death stranding. Tripple A game where I don't need to be a serial killer, has a story that is totally new(though semi derivative of The Postman), has a bleak story that doesn’t overdo it, and is beautiful is very much my jam.

“Lets make a bicycle for the mind. Great got the quote? lemme go get into my Mercedes I gotta go berate someone.”

Q: Whats the right thing?

A: You'll know it when you see it. If you work to unwind the shit you were indoctrinated into, and start to read a ton of books you'll know.

- if its not consistent, ie doesn't practice what it preaches, its worth a rethink.
- if the smartest most "out there" and/or creative types aren't into it, then there is a good chance its likely worth a rethink.

Take solace, I've now worked for some of the largest fortune 10 companies, subbed for some of the biggest/coolest contracting firms, worked for hot VC funded startups, worked for mid-term enterprises and started my own contracting firm.

Everyone is running by the seat of their pants and totally faking it. Everyone has weird jank they can't fix. Everyone has inertia they can't change course on.

Stop caring what others think. Care what you think. And work on thinking about the right things.

Chat is not a substitute for an organizational structure.

I'm looking for a place to stay in Berlin during the first few days of December, if you can help, or know someone who could, please let me know :)

Maybe I start collecting used machines off ebay and start fixing my friends laptops.

But 2015 logic boards are going for nearly as much as a new laptops.
