Moving On

I stopped writing every day a few weeks back. The decision to stop was fueled by a couple different things.

  1. Writing daily was much more frequent than the cadence I was at before. Resulting in quality, direction, purpose, you name it, getting lost.
  2. It stressed me out. I don't like talking unless I have something to say. Some people might disagree with this statement about myself :)
  3. Burnout. With lots of other stuff going on I didn't have the mental energy to keep up.

So, I'm moving on from that resolution and not going to write every day. Instead, I'm going to write like I did before about once every week. Only about things I think are worth sharing.

Default No Filter

I prefer to be the filter in incoming communication. I like to take in as much information as possible and filter it myself for what is important. I don't like it when others filter information for me. In addition to making more work them, they might miss something that I would deem important.

This also works the other way. When I am communicating information I prefer to give out the full set of information and let who I'm sharing it with being the filter for what pieces they think are important. Many people don't like this because it creates more work for them. We all assign different priorities to different pieces of information. Since it is inconceivable keep track of how important everyone else thinks different pieces of information are I believe I should not apply a filter to information that I share with others.

Detroit Art

I love how much public art there is in Detroit. This is a really cool upcoming art project that will put light up structures around the city

New Book

I just started reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. A couple chapters in and I am loving the book. USA Today's review sums it up pretty well "Enchanting ... Willy Wonka meets The Matrix."

I'm even more excited because a movie is in progress. Great to read a book first and then see the movie, not many of the science fiction books that I love are turned into movies. (none of Asimov's, Daemon or Darkmatter) Now back to reading!

How Can I Help?

How can I help?

This is always a good question to ask. I am going to work on asking it more often.
