A grim scenario.
Usually productivity and blog frequency are inversely proportional.
Not in this situation, friends. Not in this situation.
I've been working, you see. At a job. And that in itself is a fine thing. It pays the rent. It gets you out of the house. It goes part of the way to limiting the amount you can twist your brain diving deep on Reddit.
But it has to be balanced. Like everything in life. You can't just eat pigs-in-a-blanket all day long.
You've got to build something. Otherwise - what are you sustaining through your office work?
Echoes of "A Wild Sheep Chase", right?
But I've done, some things, I guess. Between the gesture and the motion fell some sort of work. Twisted literary references.
So let's take a look at what I've done.
|Cube & Star. Mac App Store. It's .... full coverage.|
It's an interesting ecosystem that I've never really looked at before.
Time will tell if it ... amounts to anything.
Or if it was all sound and furious typing, signifying nothing.
Man. What is with the references today?
|A slightly flatter, slightly closer Cube & Star for iOS.|
Well, in any case.
I went ahead and released Cube & Star: An Arbitrary Love for iPad.
And that... was just a whole thing of optimization and compromises and such.
But it works!
And it looks nice on those screens, man.
|Let's leave on a sort of joyful little image, right?|
Got away from me.
In between the last blog post and now I turned 30. And it had all the pomp and meaning and significance that every number I've ever read has carried with it.
And I just... worked at my office-job. Just working. You know... carrying the slabs of sandstone for somebody-else's pyramid.
Man.. that metaphor makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
If you create a society in which people encourage and respect you for being that sandstone-carrying (read: steady-career-occupant) - then... you're creating a self-sustaining pool of people from which to build your pyramids.
Man. That's a clever system.
Annnyway. I'm bracing for a comeback, man.
Something will happen.
