That reminds me

One takeway from the Emerging Technology (Etech) conference I recently attended is to publish, publish, publish. That was one of the main reasons I started this blog. I have a lot of ideas running through my head. To publish something formally takes a lot of effort. There aren’t enough hours in a day to take them all to that level. As a result, many of them rot. I figure why not use this blog to vent some of these ideas in whatever states of refinement (or lack thereof). Sure, it might be a little embarassing; but who knows, one of them might turn out to be something.

One of the presentations at Etech talked about a 10 second rule for filing, that if you can’t file something in 10 seconds, you won’t file it at all. Well, that’s how I feel about a lot of these ideas. If I can’t write something up about an idea and publish it in 10 minutes, I’ll probably never do it.

That said, here it is a week after Etech and I haven’t posted anything. Crazy times. Not enough days starting with T in the week.

  1. ETcon’s about the social gathering, with a very useful side effect: your thinking is permanently affected.

    After last year’s ETcon I found that much of what I took away from the conference didn’t start showing up in my written work and conversations until several months down the line — by which point everything I’d seen had integrated quietly into my subconscious.
