Dear Notes,

|
On experiencing  life moment by moment via values in action AND induction of one’s own observational concrete language…
|

Induction and Deduction

The process of forming and applying concepts contains the essential pattern of two fundamental methods of cognition: induction and deduction.

The process of observing the facts of reality and of integrating them into concepts is, in essence, a process of induction. The process of subsuming new instances under a known concept is, in essence, a process of deduction.

“Abstraction from Abstractions,”

I’m suggesting that living in the process of inducing new language and accessing ones own sense of life to live life more richly, is possible… E.G. Inducing fresh new language concepts such as “Atlas Shrugged”, rather than “The Strike”  and most recently “Progress by Incremental Improvement and Prototyping” PIIP TM rather than just “Innovating”…

Ref: Unity and Integration in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged
|

Excerpts: Ayn Rand mainly dramatizes the meaning of Atlas Shrugged in action, but still effectively uses some symbolism as a supplemental technique. She typically first illustrates an idea in action and then uses a symbol to bring abstract subject matter down to the observational level. It follows that there are no “floating symbols” in Atlas Shrugged. Rand has the reader initially experience [actually there is continuity of] particular concrete actions in order to have enough information to inductively derive [practice And experience new concepts and observations of reality] and understand [and experience] the principle involved, and only then does she employ a symbol to capture the essence of the abstraction (Bernstein). The idea that a tangible symbol represents is something abstract. Key symbols in Atlas Shrugged include: (1) The Oak Tree; (2) The Calendar; (3) The Bracelet of Rearden Metal (in the form of a chain); (4) Wyatt’s Torch; (5) The Sign of the Dollar; (6) Galt’s Motor; and (7) The Cigarette (Merrill 1991, 60-61; Bernstein).

|
Atlas Shrugged is a story of human action on a monumental scale in which Rand skillfully ties physical actions to important human values. Values and value-premises, especially those relating to productive work and romance, are both implicit and explicit in Atlas Shrugged. The creator of this integrated work of literature realized that it is important to dramatize values. People need to see [live and breath interact with] values embodied in concrete form in the world. Atlas Shrugged provides specific examples of what individuals’ values are or ought to be (Plauché 2008, 25–36). Atlas Shrugged [including the title for example] inductively demonstrates the values of a new moral philosophy of rational self-interest. As a result, it provides the emotional fuel to stimulate one’s love of existence and to motivate  a person toward his full flourishing as a human being [living in and thru experiencing of ones values and one own induced concretized meaning of values via induction of new observational concepts]. This joyous “sense of life” involves admiration for man’s highest potential (Madden, 167–175).  This sense of life involves the disposition that achievement and happiness are the normal and the to be expected [and accessed and experienced and used as a standard to verify] whereas suffering and disaster are merely exceptions in life.  Such a sense of life depends upon the acceptance and consistent practice of [unity integration of virtues of values in action] rationality, [productivity…] in every area of one’s life.
|
Rand illustrates in Atlas Shrugged that rationality is the primary virtue and moral requirement. Holding that morality is not primarily social, she explains and illustrates that morality applies even and especially to man alone. A man must choose to think. Rand maintains that rationality, the primary virtue, requires the exercise of six derivative virtues that can be viewed as expressions of rationality: honesty, independence, justice, integrity, productiveness, and pride (i.e., moral ambitiousness).4
|
Much of Atlas Shrugged is a study of the great producers who have the ability to see, to make connections, and to create what has not been seen before [most especially via the experience of value in action and language of fresh new via induction].
|
 Lester Hunt (2007, 57-62) has commented that Atlas Shrugged is a very intentional novel with every detail designed to mean something. Every aspect of the story has a “why” and a “what for.” Hunt then describes the *extraordinary meaning-saturation* of this novel. Hunt terms one structural feature Ayn Rand’s “twinning device.” Such mirroring with a difference involves *“meaning-bearing elements* that are linked by salient similarities and at the same time opposed to one another in potentially significant ways” (59). For example, there are two steel magnates (Rearden and Boyle), two major characters with mixed philosophical premises (Rearden and Stadler), two dysfunctional marriages (Hank and Lillian’s and James and Cherryl’s), two scientists (Galt and Stadler), and so on. Hunt explains that one of the results of this twinning device is to guide the reader’s attention toward making mental integrations based on perceiving real similarities and real differences. This reflects Rand’s epistemological theory which holds that the creation of human knowledge involves the finding of bona fide similarities and differences among things.
|
And so on and back and forth, zig zagging Scene by Scene thru Picture Frames Progressed until the processes led to the creation of new models whereby my body suffused mind, sense of life can “fly” with my imagination …

“When I have my awareness focused on values, I believe it heightens my ability to learn from my limitations without losing self-respect.” [via a more natural, more real, more authentic sweet pain]…

Hi I’m Atlas, a designer co-founder of PIIP TM and a pilot of one its most important brand projects: Focused Thinking at The Edge, which I informally call Work-It-Out or F-THAT which is described as an Interaction that Implies Intricacies that can be Carried Forward.
|
Unlike Brainstorming, or on your feet from the hip decision making, this has not taken off yet….
|
As you know it’s hard to explicate AND demonstrate anything that’s simple yet SO hard to beat. Kind of like selling brown liquid that would solve many problems. Would you buy it?
|
However, Progress by Incremental Improvement via Prototyping PIIP TM is something I can point to that EXPLICITLY describes, encourages and drives the Interaction of INNOVATION that Carries Forward both the Intricacies of the
Prior step and yet objectively Implies the Next step AS OPPOSED  to something one points to and talks about after the fact!
|
Progress by Incremental Improvement and Protyping is a system developed separately, in parallel, and later discovered to be the same as Mercedes Benz Bauhaus Design Progression, and Iverson’s Nucor Mini Mills, which took out US Steel using farm workers in the one case, and in the other how Mercedes and Honda Prototyping end runned Defect Methodologie’s that Hamper Innovation and the bluest of blue chip companies [GE, Allied Signal, Motorola]–to provide logical ways to achieve actual Break-thrus and increase the odds of finding, deducing and inducing elegant solutions.
|

Would you buy a brown liquid that solves eveything? Well maybe if it was Mercedes Benz branded coffee! PIIP…PIIP!!

|

The first thing that comes to mind is we are here separately having a time lapsed creative discussion about what’s interesting…

|
It’s about getting the right amount of information for yourself.
|
And not as much as possible…
|
Whether in the family or friends or traders or competition it takes Innovation and Design Clarity to keep it simple.
|
The radical idea that all creative disciplines can come together under one virtual or temp roof–here–and work and cross inspire each other via best teacher knowledge, big dream imagination to create products, tools –that did not exist before–IS radically strong and yet flexible because people can learn from each other. And this is what makes powerful relationships.
|
The power of simplicity, perfect craftmanship, the arts, the intellectual approach that Form Follows Function and everything has to have a reason comes to life when carrying forward emotion.

I did not fully realize that I Literally COULD not will myself to go sprinting in the park. I wanted to but I could not.

|

In the Interim I gravitated to a third place and started to Reach out and Stretch toward a cupboard pole, used to hang my few clothes..

|

The Pole, Body Mind Interaction Carry Forward is almost magical as it naturally positionally rests and resets my body. It’s one way to posturally clear space using an 8 directional dance (another is pen on back collar, inside shirt to get feedback with head neck, spine and shoulders)…

|

1st. My Mind is clearing and the following comes.
2nd. Ultimately I’d Rather accept/give a Voluntary Gift from a child feeding hungry ducklings attitude paradigm
|
3rd: I’ll take what I can without taking offense nor trapped in delibating pie in sky nice to have expectations..
|
Ultimately its very hard to hear and make  Requests without getting caught up in Punishment Reward paradigms of an unfree world…
|
|
4th. Rather than Lots of manipulative jackal talk…I can expect more long neck far seeing giraffe interaction if I focus on my values and that you have values somewhere as yet unvoiced…
|
How successful the interaction…is to extent I disidentify with Enemy Image language and punishment reward paradigms and observe, think and act via Direct Alternative work it out facilitative attitude and language. See How I Freed Myself in an Unfree world …
|
If I Do it because want to and enjoy it…If I find out afterwards it was resentment generating, then I’m informed and can re adjust…
|
5th. Values serving action…
|
6th. Break out of power over and stay in the voluntary
|
7th. Notice I enjoy “giving” you and or myself something…
Vs
Notice UNEnjoyable energy when “paying” from a have to duty obligation instead of want to…
|
8th. Only give and receive money /energy when it’s a gift giving or receiving as the Reason for doing it…i.e. not carrot/stick”

Here is a beginning:
It’s similar to marginal utility subscriber steps to a Better life. A so called mysterious dance. It’s similar to spontaneous order of respect for non aggression principle and quirks of methodological individualism [I’ll get to the covenant of unanimous consent]. Inner Friendliness and responsible Curiousity experienced and expressed. Without need for enemy images.  Most especially a benevolent subscriber connection to underlying values. And creativity of and also, outside either or limits…I will get to that. *I started to summarize 1st thru 8th above*.

Introducing a Focusing Conversation Attitude, April 2019: Lynn Preston
|

A wonderful Listening Curiousity “Attitude” to let something fresh open up within oneself not just to pin it down for a bare minimum of oneself and perhaps one other and so on…

|

I characterize the above focusing link as individual creativity and brainstorming with oneself such that birds of a feather i.e. subscribers can connect and focus with each other…Lyn Preston (a student of Gene Gendlins Focusing) characterizes it as a way to grow a community. Fair enough however if it’s true that it “Empowers” a Group i.e. to extent that it overpowers individuals then I would have a problem with it and I suspect so would Lynn and her mentor.

While there’s enlivening food for thought and practice here I would add the following regarding Bare minimums of Unanimous Consent to protect the individual.

An Extemporanous Point To A “Rainman” Incremental Improvement Work It Out Application 

Where one brother starts to recognize the suicidal or self defeating expressions of unmet needs and strategies…

|

Perhaps A Secondary Album Cover that Inspires, but where are the Actual Get There Steps? Does one have to act, write produce, direct and teach both at the Malgram School of Drama and on the set off this one movie In Hollywood to find them??? And is it the right combination of Sentence Completion progressions and interactions? I now know it was discovered by others else where in parallel and the steps interactive. Perhaps even some know vaguely of it and use it and or use it but know not how the theory…and perhaps care not…I speculate that it is close enough but always just out of reach for the players and audience, bringing them back…It is true for me that once known I need not come back to actors etc but only to myself and those in my world…

|

I would rather live it. As a self creator, I do a quick Work It Out here. I am not interested in Hollywood nor their kind nor those who adopt their methods, but it is something in the public discourse that I can point to as a lead in…

Here is what I am curious about and have practiced: as it relates to the above Identifications and More:

My Rediscovered Notes:

“… it begins to describe and point to a[n] [immediate context informing re-adjustment feedback] system [means/strategies to connect and express my core needs/values], rather than having [too distant, contradictory and out of my control ends] goals, that enabled [me] to ultimately be mini successful enough to spark the next and so on”.

Creating A Creative Work It Out Theory and then Applying it in many fields!

PIIP!

In a recent extemporaneous discussion I mentioned Bitcoin and Khan Academy as examples of the power of INNOVATION and Peaceful Trade in the Remnants of a Division of Labor Society. (You can now use diaspora for those who embrace such).

In that regard, I related how “Progress by Incremental Improvement and Prototyping” (PIIP™) EXPLICITLY describes, encourages and drives INNOVATION as opposed to something one points to and talks about after the fact E.G. Here’s the goal, there is the black box, and here is the result!

Yes, as my fellow conversationalists points out PIIP™ is at once a forward looking progression.  It was designed to INTEGRATE and PLAY to and carry forward the Strengths of laissez faire Voluntarist Capitalism (free market); Ludwig Von Mises Human Action (Spontaneous Order of Individuals); Work-[It]-Out Self Leadership; The Nature of Work and Creativity, Focusing, Thinking and Expressing at The Edge, Voluntary Communication and Expression of Bare Minimums of The Covenant of Unanimous Consent without the need nor urge nor addiction to focus on Disciplining NOR Command Controlling and Dominating workers, partners, family, even oneself etc etc.

If you are NOT intererested in having fun outside of master slave paradigms as par for the course, then what is the point? If you are and this Mobile Creative link begins to resonate with you, I would be happy to surf with you.

|

This had valuable application in making it possible for me to rapidly and easily turn myself and a company —without a large capital outlay–from multi million dollar costs and loses into multi million dollar profits and hundreds of millions of dollar sales with a culture, operations and software (flexible and yet strong structure) that actually Supports Creativity and Innovation.

|

With a hand shake, I was asked to catalyze and direct operations, working with C Suite Operations–as a Mobile Creative–to work out Best Teacher Knowledge and Creative Operational implementation of Big Dream Imagination that did not exist before that made a windfall possible. I was not privy to the $560 million sale that I made a VIABLE fun GO,  but I was already positioning myself just prior to the 2008 stock market crash…

AND As John Cleese put it at the World Creativity Forum, “if you’re racing around all day, ticking things off a list, looking at your watch, making phone calls and generally just keeping all the balls in the air, you are not going to have any creative ideas.” This explains why the offices of companies like Google  are full of toys [prototypes in my case], why the workdays of the Mad Men “creatives” often resemble preschool, and why artists’ work spaces tend to be so intriguing to peer into. They are, as Cleese terms them, “oases” from the punishing pace of the workaday world.

John Cleese’s Philosophy of Creativity: Creating Oases for Childlike Play

IF you think this is frivolous, fanciful or impractical, think again. 

What is perhaps missed is whose interests are served by the nonstop punishing pace of the workaday world? And how does one see the forest for the trees?

Paradoxically all the reasons for leaving a business are the same as for staying. Market demand, supply AND desire as it relates to trend movements; sales channels; growth opportunities; branding promotions; the life giving pursuit of DESIRE; new loves, and the correct anticipation of consumer shifts of capital allocations to more productivity. To do otherwise is to compound wastefulness and misallocate and risk your capital, me and you.

 

Hi, I am one of the co-creators who has used Progress by Incremental  Improvement and Prototyping (PIIP™) as a way to blend creative and operational strengths and goals and purposes in the midst of the “punishing pace of the workaday world” and without going over to the dark side of google etc etc…

PIIP™ is a system developed separately, in parallel, and later discovered to be the same as Mercedes Benz Bauhaus designToyota’s Kaizen, Kanban, AND Bruce Lee’s One Inch Punch Fluid Kinetic Chain Flow systems to provide a logical way to achieve break-thrus and increase the odds of finding, deducing and inducing elegant solutions.

PIIP™ often takes place one small step at a time and emphasizes the learn-by-doing (auto-didact) aspect of improving production. This methodology includes making principled changes and monitoring results, then adjusting.

Large-scale pre-planning and extensive project scheduling are REPLACED by smaller experiments (prototypes), which can be rapidly adapted (backing out if need be with capital intact) as new improvements are suggested.

While PIIP™ may deliver small improvements a mindset, environ and culture of continual small improvements and standardization yields large results in a form of compound productivity improvement or “Continuous Improvement”.

It helps identify actual causes of problems and transform a current state to desired state with line worker buy in, using Working Prototypes.

And it ensures three principles take place Naturally: Process AND Results (not results-only); systemic thinking (i.e. big picture, not solely the narrow view); and play to people strengths (because to do otherwise is to compound wastefulness).

The scope of this article is not to present the details and the significant impacts of that–I can certainly address that for those who are interested [4]. And to let you know it appears very few companies in America practice anything remotely close to PIIP™ (Toyota’s Kaizen systems). [1], [2]

Not long ago, in its global pursuit of the Truth, the Consultant Debunking Unit (CDU) journeyed to Japan for a tour of the car-making facility in Toyota City. Guided by engineers, we heard a lot about the legendary quality of Toyota’s vehicles. Eager to show we knew a thing or two about quality ourselves, we soft-balled our hosts with the obvious question…[3]

Defect Methodologies Hamper Industry. [4]

Which brings me to the point of this article.

The above shows briefly how PIIP™ supports In the moment AND continuem of Flow, Freedom, Innovation, My Desires, Creative Work and My Life (I.E. what some refer to as Here are my Goals, short and long, but they skipped right over how to form them and ensure their NAP Voluntary productivity and what a typical day in my life looks like.

I use the term “Work-It-Out” in the following, which is less formal and more conversational description of this self leadership, management craft and catalyst I have co-created and used…

I see 3 problems in business and in life. [To which I will provide solutions].

1. Rapid, clear, simple communication of what is critical [relevant] to the business. CF Mark Sison or Nucor Vs Trump or Whole Foods

2. Transparency and signaling of Work in Process and setting of delivery expectations [without putting a burden resentment work load on the workers and leaders ].

3. Ability to [continously immediately surf with and] change applications and solutions to the market and customer demands.

Slept last night and put my questions–so called–in one cupboard, in my mind at the foot of my bed on the rig, and the script–so called–in the other and I awoke calm amd contented without the customary start…I also had listened to

Surfing…

How I ensure three principles take place naturally: process and results (not results-only); systemic thinking (i.e. big picture, not solely the narrow view); and play to people strengths (because to do otherwise is to compound wastefulness).

It’s the Simple Things that are hardest to get right. But when it’s right, it’s really hard to beat.

It’s how I Ensured Flow: Super high end, hi volume–Spago Las Vegas style-128 multi item menu consistency; with daily ramp up or down 1-10k lbs in 1-5lb servings, using a cross trained Work-It-Out crew; working in facilities not designed to do what want to do; and at World Class level I.E. New York style: quick to market ordering & scheduling to table w/o hassle!

And it was a perfect match because it made it possible for Exec Chef and me to use both my Work-it-Out management style and the Ordering/Scheduling tool I created to very “quickly evaluate what was being offered and by whom, growth opportunities, trend movements, team accomplishments & deficiencies, vendor partnerships, safety and sales channels, being quick to (table) & to market, ROI platform creation and to build a strong exciting PIPELINE FLOW for each guest”.

It was how I was able to categorize & pair amazing varieties, ingredients and amounts of an accomplished Celebrity Exec Chef’s Test Kitchen food on daily basis with a trend movement, sales channel, growth opportunity--Paleo, Vegan & Mediterranean Diet–guests and 50 tough minded managers and their crews.

Notes: I have built all phases of my articles on Liberty.me within minutes using the Samsung Galaxy Notes 3 and recently 4 and 5, which comes with its own pen.  Buying the Note 3 will give huge leverage for pennies on the dollar.

I don’t use nor need a Monteblanc pen option on my Note however this sums it up:

Marginal Steps Toward a Better Life

Marginal Steps Toward a Better Life

I’m at dinner and the hostess serves me pie for dessert. I gobble it up. Then the hostess says, “Would you like another piece?”

I politely decline.

In her head, she is thinking “he hates my pie,” but this is totally wrong. I love her pie, especially the first piece. But the second piece has slipped from A to B in my preference ranking, and “no pie” has moved from B to A. I’m not making a judgment on the whole stock of goods, I’m choosing based on my perceived value of the incremental unit. This is a gigantic difference.

“So you don’t like my pie enough to have a second piece?”

“No, I absolutely adore your pie. When I had the first piece, it was the most important thing in the world, and I went wild for it. But when you offered the second piece, I evaluated it as an independent unit of pie. I still love it so much! But eating it is B — not A — on my internal preference ranking. If the option to decline the pie were not present, I would eat it and be overjoyed. It just so happens that what economists call the marginal utility of the second piece is lower than the first, too low to be a point of action for my choosing person.”

“I see. You hate my pie!”

What’s going on here? The hostess doesn’t understand this idea of marginal utility as I do.

I can see why two generations of economists, from the 1870s-1910s, were in a total meltdown frenzy over the concept of marginal utility. This is an idea that can save the world

Da Vinci Smart Suit!
Draft: I was searching for a Smart Suit Persona: Most especially extending from or into or thru a fictional protaganist such as Jason Statham in the Transporter series
 |
And/or
 |
A what-if part such as Uber Eats (you can use a 20 yr old car)
 |
And/or scenerio such as what IF I use Da Vinci ideas and symbols and sketching, photography to understand connect in shorthand categories at rapid go, no go, back out levels (and a way to describe and manifest that) such as building a harness out of martial artist belts to hold my body as if I’m in a cockpit, whilst getting in and out of a Prototype AMG Mercedes 500 SL, and using free WAZE android application to pick up deliver map, connect with restaurants and pubs and breweries (I carry an apron and cork bottle opener, for on demand segway from one gig Spontaneuosly to another) and perhaps fish mongers, and definetly with Wazer community to track police, car on shoulder, traffic, camera lights, or connecting with others, agoras, phylas, seasteads via and loc situs using x ray like filters to connect with them even if they or I don’t know or drop what a principle is, or what empathy is or self esteem.
 |
These are ways I express my curiousity in more than 3 ways for a particular aspect and sharpen my senses, and embrace the blurring edge of the unknown with the known, balance my logic with my imagination, and my art with my science and connect it all see Gelb 7 principles of Da Vinci.
 |
These are ways I bring Knowledge of Worlds Best Teachers together with Big Dreams to Create something that did not exist before.
|
These are ways I do Work-[It]-Outs such as Interpositions in Germany, Iceland, in your car, your boat, your everything…lol
 |
Walking up to a client and or glance a glimpse of your mirror image in book store window, and notice you walked like Gary Cooper and Bruce Lee and as if you were wearing Bond’s Saville row suit?
 |
What if you put your pen under your arm pit and pointed slightly up, which auto pulls your sternum up, your shoulders down and your body up! 
|
Moving the hands, as if juggling balls, Prototyping Mercedes 500 SLs, or surfing a conversation empathically I find it starts to move, articulate and extend and bring my mind spirit, free will, body, intention and action together as if Donning a Smart Suit (a persona extending Leonardo Da Vinci) embodying all 5 five high performance secrets [I’ll add the 7 Principles] and bringing that FLOW to the work at hand and relationship with myself and others! 
|
Juggling imaginary balls, or dancing in place, has an escaped adjunct–think Seven of Nine–effect of making that happen immediately and naturally for me and I integrate the hand to body to mind–Obi One Kanobi–persona channeling Spock Mind Meld Techniques…
 
Much like the Alexander Technique Swan movement re-sets my alignment, Voluntary Communication merged with Critical Thinking  sets my cognitive and energy connection and possibility for congruence with myself and others…

In addition, by asking “what-if?” or Observing what I’m doing out loud before and during and after an issue, I can and do literally talk my way as I listen to the spoken words of “now I am writing this”, into flow, in the moments of hearing myself. My mind is joining in a brainstorming (Donning a Smart Suit) mode. This is my version of invoking Da Vinci’s 1st principle, Curiousita in action (?).

How to Think like Leonardo Da Vinci [from the get go]: Seven Steps to Genius …by Michael Gelb
|
In the center of a mind map (see ref) is a Versuvian Man. 
And then a symbol of a parachute denoting thinking in the moment AND ahead and emanating from that:

1. Curiosita and symbol of question mark (?) Which I drew…
Ask the right question: What ifs before and just before it happens? Recording outside box ideas. Acknowledging more deeply what is….

2. Dimonstrazione and symbol of 3 views i.e. notate I, II, III and objectify 3 points of View as an Inventor. Different perspectives. Independent thinking.
Imagining Guessing needs met or not met. I. e. I. I have a need for Care and love, II. What matters and is important to me and you? III. Being heard, please tell me what you heard?

3. Sensazione draw a symbol of sharp soft eye and ear, or tears or laughter icons etc…Sharpen visualization; the thing imagined moves the sense; post imagining and preimagining; La Dolcha Vita (the good life). 

4. Sfumato and symbol of ying and yang
Balancing unknown (paradox) because in flow, surfing, juggling balls Connecting …

5. Arte/Scienza and symbol of whole brain Balancing art and science; imagination and logic using mind maps with symbols. I may start by drawing a pictogram of three balls in an arch formation…for both 5 and 6. The Versuvian Man is a well known symbol if balancing art with science…so I remember to draw a pictogram of that.

6. Corporalita and symbol of juggling balls Balancing mind and body and soul. 
 
Juggling, connecting, Prototyping, sketching, talking out loud, hearing, seeing feedback from bringing together functionality and art form and or sensousness, see 5 and curiousity see 1. 

7. Connessione and symbol of double helix (infinity sign) Connecting all the above
By drawing Da Vinci principles as symbols I can immediately sketch out, connect and soak in and self organize free fall complex ideas such as below…(even out of order of 1 thru 7) and Da Vincian style
|
Some quick energy re-directions: More on juggling and learning and expanding and exercising the mind and body! Why thinking and saying “that was fascinating” works, whilst “that was stupid” does not. I dropped a ball, oh well…

PIIPing Updates!

In a recent extemporaneo:

For the cost of $1 – less than the price of a Grande Black Coffee at Starbucks – you too can be the owner of a 58,429 deadweight tonne bulk carrier…Now!

There are two remaining. Joined together with a platform between, they would make an interesting catamaran foundation for a seastead.
I imagine that this is just the first of many connections and bargains to come…

The Roving Typist

C.D. Hermelin was broke when he decided to bring his typewriter to a park and type unique, one-of-a-kind stories for any passersby with a few dollars to spare. And people responded. Even as the project grew in notoriety, the spirit stayed the same – a writer with his typewriter, trying to come up with something good. The Roving Typist is his story.

3 days ago – Public

With an oeuvre that’s both innovative and enduring, the US photographer Ansel Adams is almost universally regarded as a master of his craft and a pioneer in photographic art. Because his black-and-white landscapes have become so ubiquitous – commonly found on postcards, computer backgrounds and doctor’s office walls – it’s easy to take the beauty of his images for granted. But as Evan Puschak (also known as The Nerdwriter) shows in this video essay, there’s perhaps never been a better time to re-examine the careful, deliberate approach Adams took to his work.
