What I'm Doing Now

I'm in Canada enjoying its exceptional natural beauty during the final days of summer, visiting family, and attending the weddings of a few of my oldest friends.

These are some points of focus:

  • Seeking to deeply understand some of my favorite pieces of technology like Postgres and Rust, and transforming those findings into published material.
  • Exercising my attention muscle by putting in more periods of deep thought and intense non-maintenance work. I try to focus on only one thing at a time and shut off my distraction machine.
  • Writing an aspirational guide for building software that's simple, robust, and stable without constant human attention.
  • Thinking about new places to go for future issues of Passages & Glass.
  • Meditating 5+ times a week.

This is a "now page" which itemizes the work and other priorities that I'm concentrating on right now. It's built in the style pioneered by Derek Sivers.
