Hey, fellas, have ya heard the news?

Musings about web development and design. I may also ramble on about all sort of things.

Ramble on

Hey folks, long time no see! It's been a while since I last posted something, and I know that I already had said this, but from now on this blog will be frequently updated, glob dammit!

I used to think of blogging as a way to share “answered questions”, and that's why I rarely write something here, because – naturally – I have more questions than answers. From this point forward, I'll start treating this blog as a place to ramble on (you see what I did here?), no more drafts folder with unfinished posts.

For the few of you that still follow me here, please hold tight, a lot of crazy stuff coming on next. Signing off, Edmundo.

Reading Tip #01

“It’s tempting to judge what you read:

I agree with these statements, and I disagree with those.

However, a great thinker who has spent decades on an unusual line of thought cannot induce their context into your head in a few pages. It’s almost certainly the case that you don’t fully understand their statements.

Instead, you can say:

I have now learned that there exists a worldview in which all of these statements are consistent.

And if it feels worthwhile, you can make a genuine effort to understand that entire worldview. You don't have to adopt it. Just make it available to yourself, so you can make connections to it when it's needed.”

From time to time, I have a look on Bret Victor's website (lad's a genius), seeking inspiration and new knowledge. This great piece of advice on reading is from 2013, but I just found it. Worth digging!
