Ellie Ott i used to build them. I understand completely. working for a computer repair shop for a few years cured some of it. (too much of a good thing) i’ve had to wean myself off of some of it. choosing an iPhone over an android years ago was intentional. I asked myself “what if I had a computer that I couldn’t tinker with?” I couldn’t upgrade the battery. I couldn’t increase the memory. I couldn’t change the operating system.

Making it impossible for owners to service their own equipment is a big part of President Joe Biden signing the Right to Repair bill – to force John Deere to listen to customers. And now the workers are forcing John Deere to listen to them. How many yachts does a John Deere executive need?

Poetry in domain names / metaphors / money-where-the-mouth-is. Inexpensive domain names meant I had some fun experimenting through the years at times. Few of these exist anymore: most were one-two year experiments. I would try different software, different website concepts. Some were single page “express the concept”, others message boards that I’d gotten some people on. (Subset of them – there’s others) I never put them together all at once to look at the them all to see if there’s patterns.
