If you missed it yesterday I am now “funemployed” and am going to take full advantage of this period.
I will write more.
I will connect with people more.
I will contribute to open source more.
I will learn more.
I will smile more.
I will have fun with my wife and kids more.
I will give back more.
I’ve been thinking about what I want to be doing for a while now. What do I want to accomplish in the next few years? How do I want to impact the world and those around me? I think I’ve come to this basic understanding of myself.
I would like to learn more about machine learning, artificial intelligence, internet-of-things/hardware, VR, and aerospace-anything.
I think machine learning and AI is the future. Granted, I am Jon Snow in this world, but I wouldn’t mind that changing.
I love/hate writing, teaching, and speaking.
I have a few conversations right now that I am excited about. I feel so blessed
to be having conversations with people who have the vision to change the way
interaction designers create and to democratize the UI development process.
I’m lucky to talk to people who are (more-or-less) building Minority Report and
to companies who enable engineers to deploy software and hardware with a
git push (there is more than one 😉).
Whatever is next, I want to make a positive change in the world. Our mission is greater than our tech stack.
(Of course React will still be in that tech stack.)
