A slow moving version of Twitter: always hand write your tweets before sending them.

A slow moving version of Twitter: always hand write your tweets before sending them.

Bright idea? Write it down, photograph it, transcribe it, then (and only then) post to the network.

It’s OK to wait quite a long time between initial idea and eventual posting. This also works for blog postings, or at least it should. Twitter happens to make it easy to do in one step for short posts.

Questions:

How will lunch work on Thursday at a new place? (A2B3 lost its regular restaurant, Eastern Accents, and we’re meeting at Conor O’Neill’s instead.) Caroline is manager.

What do you want to have stored up so that you can respond quickly to something new after having already thought through it at leisure?

How important is the drawing? (Very.)

Can you focus on something long enough to make it worthwhile to construct a lengthy effort to assemble media to support it?

Marginalia:

Adam Grant’s book Give and Take. Jerry Davis is interviewed. Look in the March 31 NY Times Magazine.

Suggest it at the Ann Arbor District Library once I get online. It’s too hard to fill out the suggestion form from my teeny tiny phone screen.

Jerry Michalski suggesting a similar piece on “bursting vs plodding” and the benefits of each, written by Steve Pavlina.

I’m listening to electronica by Valdis Krebs.

 

Afterword

“I think Buddha is one line of work.”
