What I'm Doing Now

I'm in Japan, visiting its unique duality of the most beautiful natural and urban environments in the world, decompressing from the ever-turning treadmill of electronic life, writing, and visiting as many onsens as I can find.

A few points of focus:

  • Meditating every day.
  • 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.
  • Seeking to deeply understand some of my favorite pieces of technology like Postgres and Rust, and transforming those findings into published material.
  • Writing an aspirational guide for building software that's simple, robust, and stable without constant human attention.

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.
