What I’m Working on and Thinking About Right Now

Last Updated 10/10/21

The giant caveat to all of this is that I am a chronic procrastinator. This is a list of things I am actively working on, as well as some I very much want to work on and complete in the next week-to-month, but it’s also likely that much of it won’t get done. I aim to improve on that over time. To see how this page has evolved over time, try out the Discourse Post Edit History function (the little pencil icon at the top of this topic).

  • :sparkles: Finishing up… Working with the talented and forward-thinking Anytype team to help them streamline and optimize their processes and systems + help them out with feedback and community management
  • :test_tube: Experimenting with setting up a powerful, end-to-end feedback management system in Fibery that will hopefully include Product/Market Fit-driven prioritization of feedback items, among other cool features.
  • :open_book: Finishing up “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?”
  • :construction: :turtle: Taking steps toward a home bar-oriented YouTube channel
    • Most recently I recorded some tests for a channel intro, but need to create a proper script and actually record+edit!
  • :clock5: Quarterly life review and mindset update
    • I missed the last two, gotta get to it for the last quarter of the year! :grimacing:
  • :infinity: Setting up social time with friends
    • Now that most of us here are vaccinated, I’m hoping to start having in-person events at my house again soon! Nevermind, Delta = delays. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
  • :construction: Adding more ideas and old blog post drafts to my digital garden
  • :construction: Photo editing and posting from my Western US road trip in fall 2019 (long overdue!)
    • Posted week 2! 2 more to go… :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
  • :repeat: Evaluating community platforms for various projects past and present
    • Most recently Mighty Networks and Forem
  • :repeat:Testing new apps, especially in the note-taking space
  • :infinity: Ongoing improvements to Discourse config, theme components, etc. across several Discourse instances (my own and those for clients, collaborators, etc.)
  • Finishing clearing things from my old shelves so I can get rid of them and get a new couch in their place, at last!
  • Making a video comparing some of the top music streaming services Decided I’m probably not doing this. Doubt I could do it justice, and I have things I’m more passionate about to put time into. Suffice to say there is no great option. Maybe I should write a separate topic about this…

Feel free to comment on anything of interest below. I’m always looking for input, feedback, and new collaborators for the things I’m working on and interested in! Since I’ll be updating this single post over time, try to quote the specific part you’re responding to in your message, if possible. It will continue to work even when the original text gets updated.
