December 2022

Look at me! I’m suddenly satirical! Read my hot-takes on death and personal information and brilliant ideas.

After my cynicism dwindles, I tend to spend hours watching minutes slip by. Time is scrounged and squandered. Time is shorter than you expect and longer than you think.

You become what you do. You can multitask and monotask. You can make living impossible or inevitable.

Smartphones are antithetical to action. Give your phone a home and leave your phone at home. Also avoid leaving your home in general.

To see Outside simply, learn Toki Pona! It’s can be used as a delightful baby sign-language. Check out my manifesto, guide, and flash cards.

Next month, I’ll dedicate Between Time to demolishing tech-debt at work. I fully intend to embark on “strategic” YOLO rewrites.
