A Society of Tinkerers

Herein lies our chance to establish a different enterprising mindset:

  • We need new ways to explore problems that matter.
  • We need to share hands-on knowledge with society so that anyone who wants to tinker with problems can tinker with problems.
  • We need an alternative to the zero-sum speculation that poses as celebration of entrepreneurship.

Six Months of Tiny Projects

Six months ago, I set myself the goal of creating one tiny project each week.

A wonderful example of a project log for tiny projects. If you are going to fail, at least document the process.

Milestones

A brief post by me, contrasting two 100 days of work milestones.

Irregular Cafe Schedule

I’m taking the week off from scheduled Irregular Coffee sessions. I’m always open to to a private chat if you’re interested.

I’m considering a bookclub as part of the Cafe in December, reading either Alex Hillman’s Tiny MBA or Seth Godin’s The Practice. Both are short, non-linear, and perfect for a drop-in book club. Have a preference? Reply to this email and let me know!
