BLISS brand by uln ** 20:00 What in America isn't overdone, overperscribed, overused? ** 20:19 My phone is taking away from human interaction.
There are two things I use it for daily --
- Paying for items
- Using the subway
Both should be replaced with physical cards. ** 20:30 Why do camera companies feel like traditional tech companies - hype cycle, product nobody needs, release every year, repeat - rather than companies that focus on making tools, like Muji?
Ricoh is the company I've found that cuts closest to this.
Is Leica like this? Leica is inaccessible to anyone, so that's kind of irrelevant. Why would I buy a Leica when I can get a medium format Fuji?
Every other company feeds into the hype cycle. I wonder how expensive making a camera actually is.
I'll use the busyness of life of late to shift the reclaim roundups to the end of the month that's in their name, rather than the start. So - I've got until end of September for Reclaiming the stacks: September 2023 roundup.
Maybe eventually I'll just stop making it a monthly thing. I like the format of Gordon Brander's Substack, which doesn't seem to have a defined schedule. He just seems to build on previous ideas each time, not in any necessarily structured way, but it's always fascinating.
I think for me it makes sense to have some structure and defined rhythm while I'm finding my feet. But as it matures maybe I'll improvise a bit more.
Datasette might be a good thing for documenting the initiatives in reclaiming the stacks. I'd heard about it before but never really understood what it does until reading The Magic of Small Databases. What I quite like about Anytype though is not needing to explicitly build a DB.
