I have new work on the horizon, and I have to juggle designing and programming. Context switching is a bitch, but I've got to do it and do it well. I'm starting work on a new product tomorrow, and during the next three days, Identify current UX flaws, set up...

Thinking about Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Sometimes I sit and imagine what it was like to be Dostoievsky. To live in the heart of Sant Petersburg in 1855, occupy a small studio, write all day, and at night, lit up a candle place it on an old thick wooden table filled with piles of books and...

I probably can't trust my mind

I've just had a crazy idea, what if it serves me better to think about my mind as flawed by design? I stumbled upon a pretty neat infographic called: "cognitive bias infographic" go ahead, google that, and take a quick look at it. There are maybe about 200 mental biasses. ...

Truth always comes out

Everyone lies right? Yes. I do, you do and you know what, It's almost inevitable not to lie because we're just humans. Well, that's the short answer. Let's try to get a bit more specific, shall we? But first of all, what is a lie? A lie is an intentionally...

Once upon a time in Amsterdam πŸ‘¨

Dreaming

β€œTo romance of the future may seem to be indulgence in ungoverned speculation for the sake of the marvelous. Yet controlled imagination in this sphere can be a very valuable exercise for minds bewildered about the present and its potentialities. Today we should welcome, and even study, every serious attempt...

Evolving with the community

Some 15 years ago I have encountered an unusual being on the internet. This person was at that time an active member of an online community of futurists; thinkers, philosophers, artists, designers, technologists, scientists, etc. all extremely passionate about transhumanism.

We were all enthusiastic to be together, to contribute to something...

hassling

I'm currently putting together a portfolio and I'm looking at the work I've done in the past 3 years. It's quite a lot, and I'm proud of it. The harder projects were the ones where I learned the most. I don't mind working on the hard stuff, what I don't...

Adventures come to the adventurer

About two years ago I was on a roadtrip with my girlfriend somewhere in the south of Morocco. We wanted to see the desert so, we drove further down south to the entry in the Sahara. I never experienced temperatures like that. We stopped into a little village just before...

Thinking about insanity and freedom

Insanity is being unable to escape the cage of your thinking. That is one of the largest human challenges - to emerge afresh, anew. Experience records itself in the mind, and the mind simulates it. The mind wants to have an accurate interpretation of experience, and of how reality works...

Performance

The body has certain limits when it comes to making effort. The limits I perceive, from my embodied experience do not coincide with what my body can take. When exercising for example, on a regular day my performance would be much less intense than if i would've been in a...
