nothing is won.

Too busy in my mind today to get any good work done.
I read and I sigh.
I click and I ponder why.
I start on something then on something else again.
Nothing is achieved.
No sense of satisfaction rises.
Thoughts waft like whisps of smoke from topic to topic.
Anger foments, empathy saddens.
Righteous indignation erupts.
Apathy wins.
Nothing is done.
Nothing is won.

Making paper

Making paper. There is absolutely nothing digital about it. I don't even know if it's possible to run handmade paper through a printer. Stumbled across this gorgeous paper website today. I don't even know how, or why I ended up down that rabbit hole. I think it may even have been an advert.

Old blog posts

A list apart's annual survey for people who make websites asks how long ago you created your first personal website or blog.

I created my first personal website in 1995 - and my first 'blog' in 2002.

I found some old posts in the wayback machine. May try to re-assemble some of those broken digital fossils. Probably when I'm meant to be doing something else ;)

Software Freedom Day

I rely on free software. My business, Creative Contingencies, totally depends on free software, and we earn income from supporting others using free software. I'm not a coder so finding other ways to participate in the community that creates free software and make a contribution is important to me.

"It is the people who figure out how to work simply in the present, rather than the people who mastered the complexities of the past, who get to say what happens in the future."

Clay Shirky

This morning Twitter suggested I follow Clay Shirky. And I did. And I read his blog post on the collapse of complex business models, which ends with that quote.
