Oh dear. I’m going to do this, even though I know it will be embarrassing. I’m off-plan.
My main task is writing a book about where computation/information science meets philosophy.
I accidentally started another book of stuff that fell out of my experiments with that one.
and another about Tennison’s poem ‘Lady of Shalott’, just for fun.
I’m trying to write a very short, free ‘pamphlet’ called ‘The Little Wizard Book’ to encourage kids to want to code. I’ve pretty much written it but it needs a lot more work to make it shorter.
I’ve also started a response to the Silicon Canal white-paper but it too has bugs.
I try to keep up with progress in my ‘real’ job by tracking agile and Lean thinking and sometimes blogging about it and trying to move things forward. This has spilled over into politics because my ideas are very similar. I think networks trump hierarchy. I want that message in the Silicon Canal response.
I may have to learn more about web and databases on the way.
I spent 25 of the 30 years I wasn’t coding as an OS tweaker. I have a Pi and MacOS whispering in my ears but I’m trying not to listen. The MacOS Server licence shouts loudest.
I want to build a shed-extension and play with solar energy panels. Mrs. Woo thinks I should stop the house from falling down too. I’m obsessively interested in the mathematical structures of nature, including information and whether we can learn from them.
Lean says I have too much WIP but Agile says to do experiments and this is all helping my book.
I’m not faffing, I’m DOING SCIENCE! I’ve reduced how much I music and art, to make room.
Everything is connected, as though I started with a plan/ I didn’t. I think meaning is ‘emergent behavior’ of networks.
