Becoming Abe
H-1B

My dad's H-1B expired as I was about to enter my last year of middle school It wasn't all his fault, there was also mishandling on his employer's side. But at the end of the day the blame game didn't matter. Our family had to begin planning our move out...

Becoming Abe
Mirror

Until recently I immediately discounted all stories centering race. Whenever a headline with the subject appeared in my newsfeed I would instinctively shun the perspectives as coming from a person damaged in some other deeper way unaffixed to it, that race was being used yet again as a scapegoat.

In the...

Index on the present & past rather than the future as reply to Trajectory

People always ask Gary Vaynerchuk how he continues predicting the future before everyone else.

In my countless hours of Gary content consumption I've never seen him accept this praise. Instead he'll clarify that he never gives advice based on trying to predict the future. That he's just observing what's happening...

Old Abe. New Abe as reply to You Make Your Own Decisions

In high school I wanted to be a pro bodybuilder. 

I never confessed this dream to anybody because I knew it was impossible. 

But even my feasible aspirations related to bodybuilding lifestyle never left my mouth. I spent so many hours daydreaming career and life paths related to bodybuilding. Owning a gym...

Documenting Adagia
Don't work on a deadline

This week I've been working on things that feel so far from a deadline that it doesn't even feel like one exists. Technically I'm closing the current building phase for Adagia in 2-3 weeks, but this feels like plenty of breathing room to me.

The kind of deadline that makes me...

Documenting Adagia
Promising productivity vs promising something else

The value propositions of most apps are easily tangible. A dashboard promising to increases writers' visibility into engagement levels or a unified app that allows marketers to control multiple email and social media accounts from a single solution.

When it comes to apps serving writers it's unsurprising that this same approach...

One impoverished meal as reply to Beers & Business Doodles

I'm sorry, Sal. 

It's okay.

The doctor touched Sal's shoulder through the barrier of protective gloves. Sal didn't look at the doctor's worried face through the N-95 mask covering his mouth. A nurse came through the door also wearing aa mask and informed the doctor that he had to go see another...

Win City

brianball asked me what some of my wins this week were. This fascinates me because a message I constantly send him is that him sharing his wins never helps me and I'm always begging for his...

My name is Gabriel Greco

I go on long rants on the suboptimal nature of society. I'm excellent at strawmanning these imbeciles while I sit back with a moderately top shelf bottle of single malt scotch and a Moleskine notebook. 

But let me tell you if you're about to strawman me. You cannot! For my single...

My name is DrewBaca

And I write in one single paragraph with no line breaks. It is the prominent style for real scientists. Not a fake scientist who knows that communicating the science is keystone. But I'm aware of this fact. I've read and read about richard feynman. Maybe one day I'll treat communication...
