  • equality. equal access. no one is better. collective advancement is the only real advancement.

  • When Fortuna spins you downward, go out to a movie and get more out of life.
  • Each day was only as good as its distractions.
  • Once built, the digital environment becomes a monument, an artifact, a site, a landscape, made from human time, labor, and money, made by machines, made of natural resources. Its contents can be otherworldly, yet the digital’s creation remains very much of the world, material culture of the immaterial.

  • to live somewhere mostly quiet, pretty, and inspiring. not too plastic, not too much of a retirement paradise, also not too much of a digital nomad mecca, also not too much of a fabricated expat bubble.
  • to settle somewhere, because it is not practical to want to leave all the time, it's more important for me to feel like i have a home, and have a place for my stuff, and look after my cats.
  • but also to see a lot more of the world before i die, because that does seem to be something that makes me very happy when i get to do it.
  • to have a lifelong, stable, committed partnership that feels mutually encouraging, fun, and creatively and intellectually stimulating.
