Scattered all the way


I'm still enthusiastic in spirit about Gemini, the Tildeverse, and the smolweb, but there has been quite a confluence of events keeping me busy lately. Generally speaking, work and parenting keep me busy. Neither my job nor my kids are into this retro journey of mine. I can't blame them. I think I need to find low effort--and more importantly, time-saving--ways to engage.


For the first time in my life, I kind of wish I had a boring job. I'd like to have some brain capacity left over to do things that interest me more. I think back to all the learning I did while unemployed. The more involved my career got, the more I got pulled away from my personal technical interests. I don't know if I could have done better. After all, if my career had been closer to my interests, it might have ruined them for me, anyway.
