Treating the calendars and clocks as they were time itself

We are impermeant yet have infinite ambition. This makes us obsess over our representations of time. A clock on the wall. The time on your smart phone or laptop. A calendar telling you that it's been ten years since XXYYZZ event.

Documenting Adagia
After two weeks

Because 200WAD was coming to a close I spun up this site. At first two others in the community -- including jasonleow -- were working on spinoffs. Each spinoff had its own goals and values. For...

When I found 200WAD, what Baz was doing, no exaggeration, amazed me. Here was this young guy building his own product and community and I was a part of it meeting all these cool people around the world! I felt like I was in a special mastermind for how an...

My Feelings when Viewing my Earliest Posts

I'm planning to write a script to let 200WAD writers import their old posts onto here. I think it would make for a good portal to nostalgia for us old timers. To get a hit of this nostalgia myself, I went over there to read some of my earliest posts...
