In the normal and ordinary course of a typical week, I touch many different items of technology. Hardware, software. Mobile. Server. I do all kinds of cool stuff. However, I have not done a very good job of documenting any of this.
That is, until now.
I have been moved to show my work after reading the book "Show Your Work" by Austin Kleon. I felt really compelled to change my approach to my computer experimentation as I have precious little to show for all of the hard work I have put into:
My meetups (and the tangential converstations)
I routinely have all kinds of conversations with people who would love to see what I am up to, as I routinely go places they would never think to go with my technology.In the past I would just do it. But now, I have been taking picutres and screenshots, and aim to record video as well.
At first it was vanity, but the points raised in Show Your Work have given a very clear purpose to all of this. I want to put back in what I took out of the Noosphere, and share the journey of discovery.
I have made the first of a series of changes that will show my work. I have added some photos, shared details about what I use to make this site, and have gotten into the habit of taking picutres when I go to meetups or harry my various devices. As far as I can help it, this year will be very interesting.
